I’m looking to replace my portable modem with a GL.iNet router because I saw that they claim to use OpenWRT which is a open source firmware.

My question is:

Is their OpenWRT version actually reliable?

    You can always reflash it with your own if you hold that concern.

      On OpenWRT official Table of Hardware from what I researched, it only lists older models and not new ones, I’m afraid of buying them and not being able to install vanilla OpenWRT on them.1000087187

        The newest Flint 2 model has mainline OpenWRT support. It will be included in the next stable release but can already be used through the testing branch.
