Secured connection to home network

Hello all!

I hope everyone is doing well. I am interested in creating a secure connection to my home network so that I can access it from anywhere. I have the Belking rt3200 and I was able o flash it with the OpenWRT OS and now I am in need of some guidance on how to properly set the secure connection.

Some of the ideas:

  • I would like to set up Mullvad VPN to run on the router so that it runs on the whole house, but want to have the ability to use certain things without a VPN connection.
  • I would like to be able to access my home network from anywhere in the world.

Any help is definitely appreciated! Thank you!



Thank you @ncompact ! Will this also help create a secure connection to home network while away?

But if you completely trust:

alternatively if you are served from a public ip address, you could create your own vpn server


make a vpn server whit wireguard:


To add to the excellent advice of @ncompact, you probably want to look into Policy Based Routing:
