Currently using a Linksys WRT3200ACM running OpenWrt as an access point. It’s located on the top shelf of a wire rack on the first floor. Seems to provide good 2.4 GHz coverage on all three floors, 5Gz coverage on the first two floors.
I recently upgraded to a Linksys LGS326 managed switch with support for LACP and configured three TrueNAS servers with 2 link LACP connected to the switch. I was able to confirm I can get 2x940Mbps.
WHAT I TRIED
I got a lot of mileage out of the WRT3200ACM over the years, and investigated trying to add LACP to 2 LAN ports to improve bandwidth from Wifi clients to the TrueNAS servers. I tried adding LACP with OpenWrt releases 19.07.7 and 20.02.0rc3, but I was unsuccessful at getting it working. The LuCI GUI is missing from 19 and is broken in 20. I have also read some routers may be bandwidth limited by a single GB link between the CPU and integrated switch, thus will never be able to achieve any increase in bandwidth.
Was interested in a recommendation on either an WiFi 6 AP or router that supports LACP to help improve total bandwidth from multiple WiFi clients to TrueNAS servers, and provide good coverage over three floors.
I understand that some Netgear and ASUS routers support LACP. I almost bought a Netgear RAX78 from Costco, but wasn’t sure well it would provide similar coverage to the WRT3200ACM in my three story home.
