Standalone Firewall and Access Points


New Around Here
I am adding a 4 port 2.5G mini pc to use as a firewall to my network, running either pfsense or opnsense. Currently I run an ax88u as a router and two ac1900 access points (i have a poured concrete basement that causes terrible wifi signals, and the extra ports on the APs allow for more Ethernet backhaul without additional remote switches).

So my question is. Do I gain much from using merlinwrt when all 3 devices are in AP mode?? Sorry if there is a thread about this sort of question I was not able to find much

running either pfsense or opnsense

Home routers don't have VLAN support and you won't have separated Guest Network in AP Mode.
