I often get requests via EMail, sadly I can’t answer them all but I try to pick some interesting stuff which I can explain here in detail. In general, if you’re looking for a good and solid VPN router, you can’t go wrong with Asus because they offer a great lineup of VPN-ready routers – from cheap to very high-end prices.
OpenWrt was dead, then LEDGE was popping up, now back from the dead – OpenWrt. It began 2016 when LEDGE split from the original project, the reason was that there were unhappy with the source code management and other internals – the happy end now? LEDGE will be used as code basis from now on, there also new rules which will apply to the entire project.
Routers traditionally come packed with firmware that is accessible and configured in GUI format. Often, the amount the user can configure is rather limited, and monitoring tools can be few and far between…or even non-existent!
By ‘flashing’ firmware onto your router, you can have more options to play with and make little tweaks that perhaps you couldn’t previously. Basically, you start off with your existing ‘stock’ firmware – stock firmware refers to the firmware shipped with your router.
