The 5GHz spectrum is fast, but it can take a long time to broadcast due to radar detection. Article

6GHz opened up in 2020 so it's worth holding out for Wifi 7. Article

802.11ax Routers

I want to swap our home network out for Wifi 6 (802.11ax) which should allow for many devices across both 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios.

I'd really like this to use OpenWRT because I've found it to be the most reliable base for a network. Most other routers are in a race to the bottom for price so they're not that great on the software.

The OpenWRT forum has a discussion on 802.11ax routers. Thread

One piece of advice in that thread is that "anybody who doesn't know what they are doing, development-wise, should wait until this thread gets filled with replies clearly indicating what AX routers are being supported and what people are buying the most. The more popular, the better the support." Comment

There are a few filtered lists on OpenWRTs Table of Hardware (TOH) that are linked to in that thread. Filtered TOH

It looks like the Sinovoip BananaPi is a good dev board. 4 cores, 2GB ram, SBC. Website AX-TOH
