I've bought about 100+ of these routers that we use for IT projects. So far so good. My team loves them for the simplicity of bios and other features. Linksys use to give us issues.

From previous deals for the A7, it seems like this model is one to avoid? I need to replace a tmobile cellspot router (Asus RT-AC68U). Would this be an adequate replacement?

These A7 refurbs used to sell for $15 on newegg. I'm pretty sure I saw someone selling multiple for $3 each on ebay the other week. I've been trying to get rid of mine but their use is very limited on account of the last firmware being from 2014 and being susceptible to vulnerabilities...

Can't flash a custom firmware on it either as there isn't enough memory. Although there's an openwrt flash guide, which I followed it and got a brick as a result.

Downthumbed. Definitely not a good deal for the A7.

No you can't. A7 AC1750 can't mesh between A7 AC1750. AC1750 serves as a base then you need to use extenders, RE305 (AC1200_ or RE450(AC1750) to create a mesh system.

Similar experience with mine. Had a non refurb that was less than 2 years old, started dropping connection all the time, or speed would go from 300mbps to 2mbps. Tried flashing latest TP-link firmware with no luck. Tried the OpenWRT guide as last resort and it bricked the router.

After a fair amount of e-mails back and forth with TP-link, they were willing to replace the router after I shipped it back to them on a label I paid for. The refurb they sent back at least works for now, but I've only used it a month.
For anyone looking I'd get a different model router.

Have you tried flashing openwrt?
Edit sorry I didn't read fully. I see you did try.

Never use refurbished routers! They are hacked with hidden malicious software installed.
