Raspberry Pi 4

Since couple of days now, I looked through this forum to find a solution for our router issues.

Its constantly dropping out, probably due to perfomance issues.

I like to create something new, and consider the Raspberry Pi for it.

So, so far as I know can it be used as Router - and not as Modem or AP.

I use the old Router as AP, or just some other similar device.

But what to use for the DSL Modem?


Why not bridge the ISP's DSL router/modem to the Pi 4.

Turn off DHCP, wireless, and the firewall on the ISP device, and let the Pi 4 do that work.

So, using the original Router as modem, and then into the PI, handle routing, firewall and DHCP there, and then go back into the Router from before?

That sounds like a heck load to configure.
I also like to run NextCloud next to it, by the way.

Not difficult at all.

I ran a 3rd party router on OpenWrt with an ISP DSL device bridged (which made it a modem only) for several years before I had a fiber connection.
