Table of Hardware: Ideal for OpenWrt, discontinued devices

~~META: name=“robots” &content=“index,nofollow” ~~

In principle the same as Table of Hardware: Ideal for OpenWrt, but filtered for Discontinued devices (i.e. either EoL'ed by OEM or no source for buying one found). You might still be lucky in getting such a device on the used market, e.g. via ebay.

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

  • have >8MB Flash (8M can work, but are no fun to work with. >8M will make you happier than 8M or below.)
  • have >64MB RAM (64M can work quite well, but >=128M are more comfortable to work with, depending on your use case.)

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 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 OpenWrt forum for advice on this subject.
