Table of Hardware: Ideal for OpenWrt + 802.11ax supported

In order to list devices you'll have the best experience with, here we filter for devices that…

  • are either 'Available' (are commercially available, i.e. you can buy them today) or 'unknown' (if 'unknown' → search the net for availability first, then please update the data here)
  • have at least 16MB Flash (8MB will work, but depending on your usecase 16MB or more will make you happier than 8MB or below.)
  • have at least 128MB RAM (64MB will work, but depending on your usecase 128MB or more will make you happier than 64M or below.)

Additional filter criteria:

  • WiFi 802.11ax supported

Special notes:

  • Devices with Broadcom WiFi chipsets have limited OpenWrt supportability (due to limited FLOSS driver availability for Broadcom chips)
  • A few devices do not support the standard factory/sysupgrade OpenWrt image type, instead requiring a more complex custom OpenWrt installation procedure. See the respective devicepage for installation instructions.
  • Some devices have a built-in firmware rescue function (making the device less likely to brick on flash failures), while others do not have this. See the respective devicepage for details.
  • When planning to buy a device that supports USB3.0, to connect USB3.0 storage devices and use 2.4 GHz WiFi at the same time, you may experience 2.4 WiFi problems (see 2.4 GHz WiFi issues with USB3.0). Ask the OpenWrt forum for advice on this subject.

    • D-Li, D-Lin, D-Link, Archer, Netg, …
    • DIR-6, TL-WR, 3700, 43, 430, 4300, …
  • No support for 4 MB FLASH / 32 MB RAM devices in modern (18.06 and later) OpenWrt. Details...
