    Best router to buy for wired house?

    If I want to put a wireless router in each room of my house, where each of the rooms has a wired ENET port, what is the recommended approach? Do I need to worry about AiMesh?

    Most valuable/cheapest/"best" router and wireless access point (AP) recommendations

    I've done many different searches, but I cannnot find an answer to this question. I want to buy the "best" router (wired vs wireless--I don't care) and then buy a crapload of access points (AP s) that connect to it. I don't necessarily need an ORBI or other mesh system, but I basically want a...

    [SOLVED] Help with site-to-site openVPN with pfsense (server) and RT-AC66W Asus-rmerlin (client)

    UPDATE (Solved): Turns out I had to add iroutes on the pfsense site using Client Specific Overrides. Not very intuitive, because I had to add the exact same subnet and subnet mask information I already put into the server configuration for the local, tunnel, and client subnets. Here's the...

    Wake On Lan Per HTTP/HTTPS ( Script )

    Is it correct that the script only works for requests to TARGET coming in from the firewall (i.e., outside the LAN)? I'm trying to wake my NAS when I'm on the WiFi network (i.e., on the LAN), but it doesn't seem to work. I've searched my log for the TARGET device with an IP of 192.168.80.241...

    [Official Release] AiMesh Firmware v3.0.0.4.384.10007 for All Supported Products

    1. Does AiMesh use a noticeable amount of CPU on an AC-68U? Asking before I decide whether I want to try it. I don't really tax the routers that much as I just have a couple of scripts running on it. 2. Also, can all AiMesh nodes be used as just APs if I have other services DNS,DHCP, etc...

    Question re: Firewall Setup/Configuration for Strongswan (IPSec/L2TP) VPN

    Hi, I've "successfully" set up IPSec/L2TP with Strongswan (at least being able to establish a connection, but haven't checked routing) on 3.0.0.4.376.47_0 and iOS 8 (IKEv1) with an ASUS rt-n66U. However, I can only contact the server when I'm on the LAN, but not outside. I receive a "The VPN...

    RT-N66U (Tomato Shibby) instead of NAS?

    So I have a Dell Optiplex (AMD Athlon X2) with Ubuntu 12.04 workstation that I'm running on the network as a sabnzbd and file server. I upgraded the NIC to a gigabit NIC but otherwise left it as is. It has a 500GB drive, which is too small to store everything I want on it. Should I buy an...
