device might be handy.

By Bobby Borisov  December 7, 2022  You can read all about it
at <https://linuxiac.com/linkstar-h68k-wifi-router/>

Copied from that site are the Specs:

The device is powered by a Rockchip RK3568 CPU and comes pre-installed 
with Android 11, but what’s more exciting is that this hardware allows 
you to run Linux, such as Debian or Ubuntu. In addition, you can also 
install a router-specific Linux-based operating system, such as OpenWrt.

The Linkstar H68K features two 2.5Gbps Ethernet ports, two 1Gbps 
Ethernet ports, optional WiFi 6 up to 1200Mbps, support 2.4G/5G 
dual-band for high throughput performance, Bluetooth 5.2 module, and
