All about getting online, dealing with (W)ISPs, (Wireless) Internet Service Providers, and some about the devices we use, including mobile phones. A tech' general discussion. Some DNS, OpenNIC chat, et cetera is okay. But discuss stuff like custom smartphone ROMS elsewhere. ••• VoIP/VoLTE/Internet Telephony has moved to #VoIP:matrix.org ••• Room History is "World Readable" by anyone. → https://view.matrix.org/alias/%23wISPs:matrix.org ••• Listed: https://matrixstats.org/alias/%23wISPs:matrix.org ••• For sharing: #wISPs:matrix.org ° https://riot.im/app/#/room/#wISPs:matrix.org ° https://matrix.to/#/#wISPs:matrix.org [#wISPs:matrix.org](https://matrix.to/#/#wISPs:matrix.org) ••• Keywords/Tags: #ISP #ISPs #wISP #wISPs #DSL #FIOS #FttX ••••10 Servers

high-q: Why are you trying to start a GPS discussion in here? It's clearly NOT the use for the room. Neither GPS not GLONASS are for communication, and the EU system will only be for summoning help.

The only way you would be topical with this line of chat in hete is with sattelite internet gear.

Sorry, I was offering a simple solution to a user who said they would have difficulty geocaching if they ran a virtual android remotely.

I'm sure there are geocaching, or handheld GPS rooms, but I doubt any of them have the security focus that this one does - so my comments would be even more out of place there. Since the comment was a suggestion on how to maintain privacy in the face of a challenge someone else had I think it's quite appropriate here.

On that note, I'm in a few rooms you're in, and you consistently refer people to other rooms. Part of me likes the separation of rooms, and the purity of topic that way, but conversations do drift and with the (very deliberate and appreciated) siloing of this app rapidly leads to a huge hurdle to getting information. So long as the room gets back on topic before anything important happens. Why does it matter? (I am aware that there is probably a room for this question, no need to refer me)

The chatter was about i.e. running i.e. Android app's on a remote host in a fixed locatiob over networking, and feeding it such data as GPS from your actual mobile, almost like one would do if remotely piloting a drone.

But a problem is some sieze upon something mentioned, and open up a rabbit hole. Someone might take the drone example and start talking about the best rotor blades. Ugggh!

And this is not #Cybersecurity:matrix.org , although security is still important.

Anyway, back to being topicly focused… Does anyone know of a sucessor to the Netgear wnce2001 which can be flashed with a late version of OpenWRT, and is not high priced?

What do you think about this one:

I think I'd rather get set up for smt soldering! I'm going for a multi-WAN setup via OPNSense®, including my own (W)ISP connection, but with redundancy, extra capacity, failover/failback, and certain traffic, via some long-range WiFi antennas. I wish I knew to grab up a bunch of the wnce2001 devices while they were considered a discontinued bargain.

08:24:34@one7two99:matrix.orgone7two99 Thanks for the links to OPNSense, looks promising. I had pfsense running on an Alice 2D3 for a few years. Would give OPNSense a try, but running IDS/Netflow/... will not work on this small board. I have to look at another option. Any idea for something which doesn't need to much power? Not sure about your setup regarding OPNSense and OpenWRT, you want to run both?

Not necessarily on the same hardware. I've plugged in Wifi-to-USB dongles and had pfSense® go into kernel panic. So in that case I had a "travel router" with OpenWRT on hand and linked it to the pfSense® desktop via ethernet.

And within a (para)virtualized environment, it's even easier. ;)

But OpenWRT has had better support for USB.

IDK which SBCs are best for OPNSense® or pfSense. My throughput is not a big deal, but most have too few ethernet ports.

And really, SFP should be included. :-\

06:35:21@harkenedraven:matrix.orgharkenedravenThe APU from pcengines could arguably be considered in the SBC "class" even though it's technically a full x86 computer and even has coreboot support. Ton's of people run any of opnsense, pfsense, and openwrt on them.
06:49:34@milkmanzjourdaddy:matrix.ordoevangelistarum.comMilkManzJourDaddy-OEI have a head cold, and am drawing a blank... "APU"? I'm reading that as "CPU".
06:52:13@harkenedraven:matrix.orgharkenedravenSpecial firewall boards. https://pcengines.ch/apu2.htm
06:56:13@harkenedraven:matrix.orgharkenedraven Though it is still arguable whether something like that or something slightly or much faster that you use me_cleaner on at a similar price point is subjectively better. 🤷

IIRC it was their alix gear I was eyeing. But for a home network, and maybe some sort of co-operative with neighbors, such might be fine. And usually the (W)ISPs are the bottleneck.
