Despite Having Four Working Routers, My Next Project Is Building A Router Using A Raspberry Pi 3B+, A Managed Smart Switch and OpenWRT.
Well I have. The hard part I think is over I have already installed OpenWRT on the Pi, configured it somewhat and updated opkg. I have all the pieces and now I'll have to decide how to assemble them. I had originally, thought of setting up the new router by adding an USB Ethernet dongle but from what I've read, setting up VLAN's on a switch would work more reliably. I'm new to the process so I don't know everything yet. However, that's the purpose of this exercise, to learn. I have learned much. I think learning is when one's own misconceptions and misunderstandings are replaced by facts, logic and reason. I've gained much of that, I think. I think that's all for now, until I have a working model that can be translated into words. Any comments may be made at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com in the fediverse. Keep in touch and I'll keep us updated. It's been hard finding interesting things to write about but I think I'm starting to find the right path.
