What settings do I change to ensure security?

Just installed OpenWRT, what settings should I change to make it more secure? I've already changed the DNS to Cloudflare. Also, my LAN protocol is static address, should I change that?

Unless you have some specific needs, OpenWrt is as secure as it gets, out of the box.

No, do not change that.


Isn’t having a static address supposed to be bad though? Also I couldn’t figure out how to configure my IPV6 DNS, would you mind telling me how to do that?

not really, it's lan not wan

Static address uses the dhcp server pool anyway so it isn’t static.

But IP addresses or mac “whatever function” isn’t about security in any meaningful way. That is only about some sense of order an organization in the network.
