My home network setup starts off with an Asus RT-N16 which has DD-WRT installed on it to get a little more than what the stock firmware can provide to me. I also have my home fileserver which also acts as a Squid Caching server to help speed up my browsing.
In order to have all network traffic pushed through my Squid server this is these are the firewall settings I had to use on the Asus RT-N16 router. (I am not going to provide setup details for the Squid server in this post) Continue reading “DD-WRT firewall settings for external Squid proxy server”
I noticed through some testing that DD-WRT v24-vpn does not have JFFS installed … Which means I cant use openvpn. I did some reading and there are some builds that people have made that have JFFS but lack such things as SNMP. Anyone know of a Firmware that will work on a WRT54GL that has the following
- VPN Server
- Wireless Mac Address security
- Also a web based GUI would be a plus.
I dont think its much to ask to have those type of settings. I was looking into OpenWRT but wasn’t sure what packages would be needed for something like this. If anyone can save me the legwork that would be fantastic.
So the last couple of days my internet connection has been acting pretty strange. Pinging my fileserver was taking about 4000-6000ms … which is not normal. When pinging the LinkSys WRT54G running DD-WRT v24 it was taking about 30ms which is pretty high. All of a sudden my wireless dropped and all the settings were reset to DD-WRT default …. Spent about an hour setting it all back up, while doing so I decided to upgrade to the newest version of v24. All seems well now and much quicker to boot.
