Re: [LUG] DIY router

Thanks Gordon,

I'm sick of router crashes, and not having decent packet dumps without reconfiguring, so a Debian box of some sort makes sense.

Agree about WiFi, but no dedicated access points here, and I'll be very annoyed if I reuse the existing router and discover it is the WiFi interface causing the current router to crash.

One of my 3 access points is an old router/modem device. Draytek 2820. I was using it as my ADSL modem before the VDSL connection (with wi-fi turned off) I just reprovisioned it as an access point. Waste of hardware, but I've no other use for it.

No GUI, that'll reduce the risk of XSS attacks. Just issuing a DHCP response claiming your host name is <script>blah... with a few comments in will pwn my current router if anyone tries it locally.

Drop me a line offlist if interested in my iptables, etc. setups.

When I checked, the Atom system was using about 15 watts plus the disks which are

Model Family:     Western Digital Caviar Green family
Device Model:     WDC WD10EACS-00ZJB0

When I get round to re-doing the setup I may just upgrade the other NAS type box I have and not have any real disks in the router.
