I don't know if there are better choices out there, but for sure, the C7
remains a very well supported router on OpenWRT/LEDE. Both ath9k and ath10k
drivers are being worked on over here (C7 uses both), however I believe
ath9k has more open source code, so maybe a 11n router using ath9k on 5GHz
would work better in terms of bufferbloat. The only problem with the router
might be the lack of CPU power when handling SQM at higher speeds. 60/6
should be OK.

the TP-LINK   C7 1750 rates highly, for instance...  but I haven't been
able to nail it down as a good make-wifi-fast choice. (or even an Openwrt
