Budget router support OpenWRT, DD-WRT

Should we choose budget router support OpenWRT or DD-WRT?

TP-Link have many < 100$

Hey great question. Think it would be great to show along help along in the same way and show there are decently priced options for these routers.

Ive seen barebones flashable linksys routers start at around 25USD but it doesnt feel reliable. Any specific feature set you need?

GL.iNet routers are worth a look; comes with their own fork of OpenWRT pre-installed but you can also flash the official OpenWRT firmware.

Security with comfortable price

I flashed a Linksys E1700 to OpenWRT but the connection drops a lot. Unsure if it is due to the low end model or if it is a problem with OpenWRT compatibility. The price is comfortable, the question is, will you settle with a connection issue?
