I am not an expert but as far as I can see it's basically OpenWrt with some additional Onion packages installed and of course the wi-fi driver. The additional packages generally are to support Onion specific hardware and wed pages for initial setup and Onion apps for the web interface.
For me it is a smart choice. They use a standard OpenWrt build and just add a few things to add the additional functionality required to support their device and peripherals, it's not a complete fork of OpenWrt for some kind of vanity project.
The device is about 10 feet from the AP. Curious that this occurs at precise 2 hour intervals. That doesn't seem like noise or weak signal. Maybe I'll look at the AP settings to see if there is an inactivity setting or something. Though I've never heard of that.
Glad to see everyone is as excited about the Omega2 Pro as we are! :D
A few clarifying points:
The Omega2 Pro is an addition to the Onion family. We will not be discontinuing Omega2 and Omega2+ for the foreseeable future.
The firmware is an Onion-flavored OpenWRT 18.06. We will still continue to create firmware for the Omega2 family, and the OpenWRT 18.06 version will make its way to the Omega2 and Omega2+ in the short term.
