Nah. No GB or 5 GHz.

And the more capable sister product mentioned has no USB.

Hurry up and wait.

Agreed (that questions remain). e.g. Web interfaces 'lines' for 
'filtering' typically aren't numerous enough to be even default 
effective. An iptables-like interface is going to have to be de 
rigeur. e.g. Denying access, coming or going, to all the disparate 
undefined address space ranges, e.g. 0.0.0.0 - ?.?.?.?. [Can't recall 
the first range, of many, off the top of my head.]

Let alone a squid (?) like interface for traffic management via name, 
not just ip address.

Both of which, I'm guessing, OpenWRT has.
