Fantastic for OpenWRT/LEDE and heavy workloads
on 15 October 2017
Best router I've ever had in the top-end home / small office range. It's built to run OpenWRT, which I am (LEDE). Have had this for a couple of months now, and couldn't be happier. Very powerful CPU as well, which is unusual for home routers but very useful if you use encrypted traffic a lot (OpenVPN, IPsec).
I'm running two independent wireless networks, and two different broadband uplinks through this device, and due to the kind of work I do for a living, have been pushing the boundaries of many routers. This one, on the other hand, gracefully handles anything I throw at it without breaking any sweat.
However, I would strongly recommend not to buy this if you don't intend to run OpenWRT on it. The original Linksys firmwares are terrible and have been under a lot of criticism for their lack of security. This definitely is a "built your own" kind of router, not a plug-and-play device.
