    Wifi network settup - RT-AC86U w or w/t RPi 3B - advice request

    Thank you @Smokey613 for your reply and advice. I have highlighted above because I thought maybe this is my issue of zero inbound connections blocked (=showed as blocked in Skynet). I have to check later today if I have switched on an option not to enable inbound logging. I don't think so, but...

    No, I do not have IPv6 open. But I have firewall for IPv6 switched on. :) Just in case. :) Seriously, I have to review my routers settings again. :) Thank you @Tech9 for your advices!

    Wifi network settup - RT-AC86U w or w/t RPi 3B - advice request

    Hi @Smokey613, thank you for your reply. My case with Skynet is different, because I see 0 (zero) in blocked inbound connection (blocked = identified in Skynet's blocklists :) ) and some in blocked outbound connections (blocked=as above). Now you make me worry. :) I have to review my devices...

    Wifi network settup - RT-AC86U w or w/t RPi 3B - advice request

    Hmmm... frankly I do not know if it works or not. Skynet works, or at least shows number of blocked outgoing connections. After temporarily switching Skynet off I hoped to see number of FW firewall entries in system log. But it was, as I wrote above. When I check firewall on Shields Up! (for...

    No. Just found one entry in system log: kernel: DROP... . When the Skynet has been switched on again this entry disappeared from the syslog.

    Wifi network settup - RT-AC86U w or w/t RPi 3B - advice request

    Hi, Well... I was expecting to see logs. :) But first, yes I had scribe installed. Sorry for not mentioning that earlier. I have uninstalled it minutes ago. Now I have one system log window in GUI. As for "Logged packets type" I had and have it on "dropped", not on "none" (default setting). I...

    Wifi network settup - RT-AC86U w or w/t RPi 3B - advice request

    Hi, again, thank you for taking time and reply. It is paid, but I am using the free version so far and it is more effective in blocking ads, than free AdGuard DNS. Both checked on two websites: adblock-tester and d3ward.github.io, and both servers on mobile and pc devices. On mobile Mull...

    Wifi network settup - RT-AC86U w or w/t RPi 3B - advice request

    Well.... I have checked "System logs" and I have "skynet-0.log" name and it hows around 20 entries, counting from May last year. Nothing more., which is weird because I use Skynet much longer. Hmmm... Another confusing issue. Shall we switch AiProtection on, or kep it off? Is this setting good...

    Wifi network settup - RT-AC86U w or w/t RPi 3B - advice request

    Recently I have started to use NextDNS on my mobile. Customized setup and it works best for me, better than AdGuard DNS, which I also tried.

    Wifi network settup - RT-AC86U w or w/t RPi 3B - advice request

    One last thing I would like to rise up. Why do not use the router with attached storage? If I want to build prvate cloud, then I should connect the storage to RPi, right? Should I ue OpenMediaVault or just regular soft or settings on Pi-hole? This is a complete terra nova for me, so I may ask...

    Wifi network settup - RT-AC86U w or w/t RPi 3B - advice request

    Actually my first dream is to have the fastes possible and stable wifi connection at home. For the moment (RT-AC5300 router) I have three four different networks created, one for each band and one, additional, guest network combined from 2,4GHz and 5Ghz (one of the bands). The maximum download...

    Hi @Tech9, thank you for your reply and recommendations. And sorry for late reaction from my side. Frankly, that changes the whole perspective I have from reading the SNB forums. :) Many suggest using Merlin's software, beacuse it gives the possibiity for customisation by scripts. I have Skynet...

    Wifi network settup - RT-AC86U w or w/t RPi 3B - advice request

    Many thanks @bbunge for your reply. May I ask some additional questions? :) 1. Understood - Diversion with Merlin or Pi-hole with Asus' stock firmware. But, there are no Skynet and other scripts in the second case, right? What is your opinion on stock's firmware firewall then? Or there is...

    Wifi network settup - RT-AC86U w or w/t RPi 3B - advice request

    Hi, need a consultancy and advice, if I may. For my flat 110 sqm / 1100 sqf I have RT-AC5300 running currently (with the most recent Meriln soft) and RT-AC86U waiting to be a replacement for the above one. Have around 10 mobile and smart home devices connected via wifi. No device is wired to...
