I just purchased a WRT1900ACS and will be installing pcWRT. I am interested in user experiences in using pcWRT on this router. Has it been stable? Any issues I should anticipate? Do all the standard pcWRT features work?
You can’t use the WRT1900ACS for gaming, the latency is upto 70-80 ms extra compared to a regular router when you’re on 5G. This is a general problem for the WRT1900ACS. However, if you are planning on using it for personal use, or as a powerful VPN router for Wireguard or IKEv2 then it will most likely suit your needs.
I own both a WRT1900ACS and Newifi-D2
And 5G can sometimes disconnect at wRt1900ACS. Again, as long as you are not planning on gaming. Otherwise if you got the money for a Newifi-D2, it’s a much more stable router in general If you are buying a usd one make sure the its the version 1.2 because you might need to do the EEPROM fix. https://forum.openwrt.org/t/newifi3-d2-wifi-fix-tutorial/129035
Altough it may not crunch the numbers as fast as the WRT1900ACS for VPN. It’s more stable all-round.
