This isn't a well defined question at this point, but I'm asking here as
there may be insight on offer.
I'm currently using a Linksys WRT AC1900 as my router at home (the
original version, not v2). It has OpenWRT installed, and I keep it up to
date. It's fine for the moment.
When 802.11ax hardware becomes more readily available, I plan to upgrade
to something else. In particular, I would prefer to run an operating
system that can be upgraded package by package instead of having to
install an entire image, and which is more like a typical Linux
distribution than OpenWRT is. Of course, it needs to offer all of the
desired networking functionality.
So, on the hardware and software side, what are the interesting projects
to consider in this area? For the hardware, wireless and at least 4
Ethernet ports would be ideal, as well as high reliability and more
RAM/CPU performance than consumer devices provide. As noted, I plan to
wait for 802.11ax (unless the current hardware runs into problems
meanwhile, of course).
