GL-AR300M – GL.iNet: nice small device allowing NAT over WAN, WiFi, 3G/4G modem, or OpenVPN

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/08/28

Still glad I got a few of [WayBack] GL-AR300M – GL.iNet: it makes travel life so much easier when you cannot use tethering.

I got the model GL-AR300M with external antennas (the GL-AR300M only has internal ones with a much shorter range).

Powered over USB, it runs OpenWRT and can NAT a local network towards an external network on the WAN, WiFi or (via USB) 3G/4G modem.

Despite doing only 2.4Ghz, it was a life saver in many occasions (there is a 5Ghz model, but it has over heating issues).

It can even run as an OpenVPN client, but given the hardware it is limited to about 10 Mhz (and gets quite warm).

Over USB, you can access web-cams, hard-disk, and more.

The internal LAN is a life saver when for instance you hook it to a stack of Raspberry Pi devices.

I’m not the only one happy with it:

Below are some videos with config tips and reviews.

We already have a lot of solar panels, but if you do not and live in the USA, then this might be a good starting point to get a solar estimate for your area, based on the amount of usable sunlight and roof space.
