Monday 18th February 2019: 10.02pm. Picked up an old Netgear R6220 2x2 11ac router with nasty cheap Mediatek chipset off eBay for €30 including postage. OpenWRT went onto it surprisingly easy, and now it's a second Wifi AP in my house solving the wifi blackspot in my bedroom, and more importantly, the toilet.

OpenWRT has come so very far in the last few years. Easy to install, easy to configure with a lovely GUI, performance doesn't suck like it used to either. And so very, very, very much better that the proprietary firmware they ship with.
