Hi 

 

Is anyone using this router with quic?

 

I know it's an older router but Ive been offered one cheap and think it might be good upgrade for a friend who's currently using a spark router. 

 

Is it grunty enough to handle 900/450 with or without ppoe?

 

Openwrt can handle DHCP properly I assume?

 

 

 

Cheers

No idea about the router but OpenWRT works happily with either DHCP or PPPoE on Quic for me.

If it’s a Spark Smart Modem I’d personally use this over the WRT.

 

 

The WRT wasn’t a great router from experience.

What issues did you face? I use the WRT1900ACS with OpenWrt as my daily driver and zero issues on a gigabit plan

@boosacnoodle the ACS is vastly better than the AC. I had to replace this router (the AC) after it would overheat and crash.

 

But also these days there are far better options. The AC was released almost 10 years ago and the “fixed” version, the ACS is almost 9 years old now.

Unless of course its an AC v2 which is actually the exact same hardware as the ACS v1. AC v1 was no good to be honest.
