For various reasons, I need to use a single board computer as access point (among other functionalities).
I currently have an RPI2+Atheros configuration, which is limited and not very stable. I also have experience with other setups, including RPI2+RTL8188CUS, and PC+i7260.
None of those configurations is really usable as router. This gave me some distrust of the internet knowledge I've found until now, because I have the suspicion that users of such setups do their mini project, succeed in connecting a few times, then claim/publish success... and revert to their real router. As a matter of fact, I haven't read a single "I've been using XXX as router for months now" - not even days, actually.
Now, I'm strongly interested in the BPI-R1, mostly because being a standard configuration, it would hopefully not be susceptible to variability (which equals to instability) due to different makers.
I'm not a big fan of Realtek (my RTL8188CUS was highly unstable even with the fixed RPI 8192CU kernel module), but I would give it a shot if I would know for certain that it works as full replacement of a router.
My question therefore is: is there anybody who is permanently using a BPI-R1 as router?
