Guidelines for WiFi access points at home/office

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/10/02

The first post (in Dutch) has quite a few good tips on improving WiFi at your home or office: [WayBack] Router D-Link moet snelheid van 2,1Gbit/s op 5GHz halen – Computer – Nieuws – Tweakers.

There is also a nice explanation of beamforce, where the video below gives a good visual indication on how it works.

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.

NeverSSL – helping you get online

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/22

most websites are now using https by default.

And that’s great, but it also means that if you’re relying on poorly-behaved wifi networks, it can be hard to get online. Secure browsers and websites using https make it impossible for those wifi networks to send you to a login or payment page. Basically, those networks can’t tap into your connection just like attackers can’t.

So to get your brain-dead hotel, airport or other WiFi connection to work:
