MeJ (and everyone) --

The GL iNet routers are pretty good. I use these as APs:


Also available in a PoE version (which I need to remember to order for
the office).

And my travel MiFi is also by GL iNet:


No relation to the company. Just happy to support affordable OpenWRT
mainline equipment suppliers!

Kind regards,


PS -- I also have a Turis Omnia as edge routers at home and the office,
but that's a whole other class of affordability!
