Table of Hardware: Ideal for OpenWrt
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 8MB Flash (4M can work, but are no fun to work with. >=8M will make you happier than 4M or below.)
have at least 64MB RAM (32M can work, but >=64M are more comfortable to work with, depending on your use case.)
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 no 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 LEDE forum
for advice on this subject.
