Firmware FAQ

Scroll to where it says what router I should buy. There are three models listed, and actually the TP-Link Archer C7 and A7 v5s are now supported.

It depends on what you're looking to do with the router vs. budget.

It depends, only to play with dd-wrt?

Try to get your hands on a new ASUS RTN12D, only 300MHz mips core and no 5GHz wifi, only 100MBit LAN and 2.4GHz wifi.
~25 bucks new on amazon.

On the other hand, used condition ASUS N66u sometimes very cheap on ebay ~30bucks.
2.4 + 5GHz Wifi, GBit Ethernet and WAN... on a 600MHz mips core.

Got my R7000 netgear in used condition for 60bucks from amazon.
Dual Core 1000MHz CPU, fast enough including 2.4 + 5G wifi.
