[Battlemesh] What hardware still works?

How much would everyone trust these off-brand Chinese models like the one
linked above (
or this one that looks eerily similar to a Nanostation and in fact is
referred to as a Nanostation in the description (bit.ly/20VOkuK)?

Are these viable alternatives?

And if they are (since at least the Mediatek one has OpenWRT installed
already), I think it would be useful to talk about organizing a group
purchase of these devices (I know coordinating it could be a nightmare, but
if it's a viable choice...) if there is enough need for them. I know Meta
Mesh is a few days away from knowing whether or not we will receive a grant
to install 180 routers... so, there's that.
