Nowadays you won’t find ddwrt/openwrt support in routers costing less than 6-7k anyway except for 1-2 models from tplink.

I can see even A6 and C6 in this openwrt supported list.
Am I missing something here ?

Kind of(aka not full official support but openwrt does support it) but with just 8mb rom & 64mb ram running openwrt is not going to be much different from running stock firmware as more/better/advanced features of openwrt/ddwrt suggests 32mb rom & 128mb ram.

Archer C6 & A6 are the oldest selling routers of tplink in global market & probably because of that tplink continued supporting ddwrt/openwrt on these models but other than this almost all other tplink models have either dropped ddwrt/openwrt support in latest hardware version(for example archer c6 v2 is supported but not the latest v3) or the hardware specifications are not good enough to run anything more than the most basic version of openwrt/ddwrt which won’t be much different than running stock firmware feature wise or performance wise(see my above post).

Thanks for the reply. Can you recommend a gigabit dual band router with good openwrt support, under 3k

Aim for archer A7 during bbd sale as it may sell around 3.3-3.5k after all the discounts. It has 16mb rom & 128mb ram along with qualcomm processor. Don’t go below this for openwrt/ddwrt. Also if range is your main concern then look for two cheap wifi routers with wds functionality & connect them wirelessly using wds to make one of them work as wireless extender, best solution for 2 floor home situation(place primary router in a room on one floor & place secondary router in a room/location just below the first router on down floor & connect them via wds).

Never settle for anything less than a wired backhaul. WDS doesn’t just reduce bandwidth in half, it also reduces reliability

You are confusing wireless repeater with wireless extender. It is wireless repeater that reduces bandwidth by half not extender. I have 2 archer C20 connected via wds on same floor & I am getting full 100mbps on secondary C20 with solid connection. Wired backhaul is indeed better but not always possible or desirable.

Any sources please?

I think your understanding is incorrect. I used to have a WDS setup (using Openwrt) some years ago. And max bandwidth would always divide because the extender will both receive (from router) and transmit (to client) at the same time (in case of downloads). It obviously depends on the link speeds so LAN transfers will definitely get affected if not the internet.
I moved away from consumer setups into business-grade wired router (Mikrotik Hex) + AP (EAP 225). Have never had to restart my network since then.

I guess we both were right in a way.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireless_distribu...

The maximum wireless effective throughput may be halved after the first retransmission (hop) being made.
Dual band/radio APs may avoid this problem, by connecting to clients on one band/radio, and making a WDS network link with the other.

In case of wds between dual band routers wds can only be activated on one band leaving other band fully unutilized so if you connect 2 dual band routers over 2.4GHz wds then any device connecting to secondary router via lan wire or 5GHz band will get full bandwidth of primary router 2.4GHz band. I only connect my devices to secondary router via lan or 5GHz band so never faced this halving of bandwidth issue so assumed it to be true for all scenarios.

Whatever you choose, wait for bbd

Few basic gigabit routers that will be near 2000 are
A6, c6, ac8, ac10 ,for future proof buy wifi 6 routers if budget is not your problem

If any one want full speed on secondary router i will suggest a connection via lan cable into its wan port and voila u can repeat that as much as u want, tested in 5 routers connected in a street over 5 houses, so never had any speed problem till now, continuously using from last 1 year

Read reviews that Tenda overall build quality is bit less than Tplink so bit more chances of failure in long run & very slow/no security updates.
