I am running this on my LBR20 to get a better view and handle on my network.
Turns out the LBR20 has many more network interfaces than I would have expected.

Is there a documentation for each interface?
I am especially concerned with the seven ethernet interfaces ath0, ath01, ath11, ath2, br0, eth0 and eth1.
How do they map to the two physical RJ45 jacks and how are they used?

I would like to hock it up to a proxy server with a dual link and am debating if I could use link aggregation with two 1G lines to better utilize a WiFi6/ax access point.

Hi Voxel! I am not a Linux user so I apologize in advance if this is an impossible task. Is there a way to install a package? I am trying to install Green Tunnel (used for DPI bypassing. Lets the user bypass throttling connections to streaming sites like Netflix/Youtube, Etc.) https://github.com/SadeghHayeri/GreenTunnel
If not, is there any way this could maybe be included in the next release? :)
This DPI bypass is faster than VPN connections and is very useful for LTE users.
Thanks for all your work!!!!
