I've been wanting to build an OpenWrt router for a while now, but I've yet to find an image I can flash/install. I'm primarily working on Raspberry Pi 4, but I do own a 3B+.
In the short term, I'd just like to repeat a partially failed project I did a while back where I made a reverse access point by hand.
- Pi connects to Wi-Fi and provides network to Ethernet, switch lets me connect multiple devices
- (Goal missed) A follow up project requires isolation from the home network while still having access to repositories and maybe a whitelist of other IP's depending on task.
In the long term, I want to have (listed in order of priority):
- Gigabit home router --Some overclocking needed, I believe
- Total control over port forwarding (ISP's software is so babyproofed, I couldn't forward port x to port y where x!=y if I needed to)
- Wi-Fi network on or downstream of Pi4 (Not opposed to using a separate Pi if needed)
- A DNS sinkhole to catch unwelcome IP requests
- A personal VPN so the family's phones can benefit from said sinkhole while out and about.
