I’ve used it continuously for months as my personal home router - often without rebooting for weeks. I’m using openvpn 24/7 with adblock also. Bandwidth usage is about 20-40gb per week.
I have the following recommendations:
- use a solid power supply
- leave it plenty of space for air to circulate
- use wired WAN if possible
- disable 2.4ghz if you don’t need it -or- reduce power to as low as possible if you do
The usable range (no perceptible loss of bandwidth, page loading issues or disconnections) on the 5ghz radio for me is about 10m. This is when unencumbered by walls (just some thin wooden partitions) in a very busy urban environment with competing networks and noise floor of around 99db. With one wall, I would estimate 5m for decent throughput.
The 2.4ghz radio obviously travels much further.
