FS: Netgear R6220 Gigabit AC-1200 Smart WiFi Router with External Antennas

It is one of the preferred OpenWRT Devices, since it has very stable release and good configuration (880Mhz processor, 128MB RAM & 128MB Flash, USB port).
Can have multiple uses besides routing like torrent downloader, or adblock/VPN (without need to install anything on client devices) or combine multiple WAN connections with it (using mwan3), print server, etc.

Also support mesh-point operation(802.11s) with full support for fast roaming protocols 802.11r/k/v (which normally is supported by only expensive mesh devices like orbi, deco, etc). Can be used as main router in a mesh or as a satellite with another openwrt router.

Router is almost new and In warranty till Nov, 2023

Received the router, works great. Feedback added. Thank you very much!
Can you please post its 2.4GHz wifi performance on openwrt as there are many reports in openwrt forum mentioning that 2.4Ghz wifi will work for around a day before disappearing & won't come back unless router is turned off for few minutes & then turned back on? 5Ghz wifi has no issue though.

This router model does not have any such issues. Both 2.4ghz and 5ghz work fine and no reboots necessary. One time I had run openwrt more than 20 days straight without any reboots.

BTW router is sold, mods can close the thread
