I had a Beryl for a short time about 18 months ago but it kept having weird errors where it couldn’t connect at all to hotel wifi. Despite trying to get help from this community as well as Glinet support, we couldn’t pinpoint the issue & I had to return it. I never did get it working.
I’m looking to try again. I’d like a unit that I can use in addition to my primary router at home to run as a VPN connected device as well as for use when traveling to hotels and Airbnbs to make overall connections easier.
I’ve searched the forums & didn’t see a comparison between the two (which surprised me) and I have, of course, looked at the comparison chart but other than MU-MIMO and MicroSD slot, there weren’t any other differences listed. The other primary difference I noticed comparing the two product pages was DFS on the Slate AX.
I’m just wondering what the benefits are for the Slate AX vs Slate Plus. There is a modest price difference right now but not to where AX is unaffordable. I know this community is incredible at knowing the intricacies of these units and I’m curious if there are things that could be easily overlooked that make the Slate AX a better choice. I’d love to know any other benefits of chipset, longevity, compatibility, etc. Are both compatible with vanilla OpenWRT (if needed), or are there any other similar things I should know?
Thanks so much in advance! Any info would be amazing. : D
