    Recent DD-WRT also has it patched.

    Anyway, this is completely off topic.

    Yeah and there are tons of older routers not able to take any of the three

    That refers to KRACK. It's an implementation ptoblem, not a protocol problem. It's also a client side vulnerability. It's already been patched in OpenWrt.

Openwrt or pfsense doesn't come close, but they have their own uses.
    I've never had issues with openwrt flashed boxes. Rock solid 24/7/365. OTOH I had to spend some time to learn about the compatibility.

    DD-WRT's big downside is it's braindead version of an Web UI. VLAN's don't seem to be working as they should (try setting up IPTV for example)

    WPA2 is broken you can read the traffic in open. and it was developed this way to make sure intelligence services can read it in open.
    I understand you lack any and all technical knowledge regarding WiFi, so please stop spreading FUD.

    I know how to hack WiFi networks. You clearly do not.

    WPA3 is secure and good.
    You're confusing WPA2 with WEP. Reading traffic in clear text is rather difficult and requires knowledge of the password used on the network.
