Netgear R6350 experience #hardware #wifi

๐Ÿ•‘๏ธŽ - 2020-08-29

Plus:

โ˜‘ OpenWrt installs easily (bought it specifically for this) โ˜‘ 5 GHz network speed is good

Minus:

โ˜ 2.4 GHz network close to unusable

I'm not sure if I have a dud or what, but speed is horrible and connectivity spotty on the 2.4 GHz network.

I ended up turning 2.4 GHz off in the Netgear R6350, and configuring the (new) ISP's Genexis Pure ED500 router as my 2.4 GHz access point instead.

(Experience with (the old) ISP's Netgear VVG2000 router, which was flaky when acting as an access point, led me to shun the wifi built into ISP routers since, using a separate access point instead.)
