Good day all
I have a MikroTik Router RB2011UiAS-in and find it a pain to setup. And it uses extra power aswell.
I was thinking to install Open WRT as a docker on my Raspberry pi 4.
Does it do the same work as a MikroTik Router?
- works as a firewall wall to block in coming traffic.
- can I also use it to block certain websites/words on internet traffic.
- can I allow myself to access my own router from outside my home network.
I just don't seem to get the theory if the MikroTik Router sits between my fiber and router, how can Open WRT do the same thing if it sits behind my router. The it means my internet has to run via my router first before it goes to the Open WRT and that seems to make a loop in my network.
I hope to hear from someone soon.
