You can interchangeably restore the backup settings of most Asus Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6 routers. All Asus routers — including the router unit of the company’s home mesh systems — have to offer. In a mesh system, only traditional Tri-band hardware — those with an additional 5GHz band — can have a dedicated backhaul band without ostracizing clients of the same band.

- Besides that, you can check out OnePlus, Motorola, Nothing, Realme, and Asus devices for good custom ROM support.
- Bootloader unlocked, and unlocked forever until a re-locker tool is released.

All of them have support multiple wifi bands, guest network, multi-core CPUs and the ASUSWRT firmware. You don’t need the most expensive models – Asus offers high-end routers priced above $300, but these are overkill for most users, and over $200 you get less bang for your buck. I personally own 4 of the best ASUS router models, including the powerful AX-86U and my trusty AC-68U which has been a reliable workhorse for 6+ years now. If your router is not supported by any of the projects out here, it might be a good idea to invest in a second-hand model. This way you minimize the damage to your budget if anything goes wrong and you can’t recover your router in any way. This is an alternative router project that works only with routers that are using Broadcom chipsets. Don’t worry, this is just a tiny bit limiting since a lot of routers are using Broadcom chips.
If money grows on trees and you’re willing to pay an extra $100 for a modest improvement over the already-awesome AC88U, then this router may be worth a look. It can also run the ASUS-WRT Merlin upgraded firmware. This essentially allows you to have 2 wireless networks in 1 router (and that’s not even counting the guest-network functionality). Regardless of your use-case, these are the best ASUS routers for VPN, torenting or building your own home NAS server. This really is a spot where an actual open source hardware design is probably the only real solution. Because I learned how to build openwrt, I also have two mikrotik rb3011uias-rm 10x gbe switches. I really believe if you plan the project like you would a production project you’ll have an extremely good experience.
We recommend choosing a dual-core (or higher) model. In my opinion, ASUS routers are the perfect blend of capable hardware and feature-rich software, thanks to the ASUSWRT firmware which comes stock on most models. The goal of this project is to fix issues and bring some minor functionality adjustments to the original Asus firmware. While some features stock ROMs do get added, this is not the main focus of this project. It is not meant to replace existing projects such as Tomato or DD-WRT, but rather to offer an alternative
