I think home networking is a central and complicated enough topic that a show devoted to it would be quite useful.
It should cover both the hardware and “software” choices for people with different concerns about levels of security, performance, price and ease of setup/configuration and use.
I for example have two old Linksys WRT54G routers connected by Ethernet providing coverage throughout my home. My current (grandfathered) download is “up to 15 Mbps” (and I commonly get up to 10 because I throttled my router to reduce bufferbloat).
Sometimes, my Twit TV videos or the videos from Netflix buffer, but my wife and I are generally OK with the performance.
BUT, the available DD-WRT software doesn’t have any security updates as far as I know, so I am concerned that I am at risk of intruders.
So, I would like advice on an inexpensive substitute that would be modern enough to handle the next level of download that my ISP offers (200 Mbps) and would allow me to customize for security and performance.
I am ok with using the command line to configure these devices (I am no guru, but I am retired and stubborn).
I am interested in “quality” hardware like the EdgerouterX (with an additional wireless access point) and would like to use PFsense if this is reasonable. (I don’t think it is easy to get PFSense running on the EdgerouterX).
I am not enamored with mesh systems because (a) they are expensive and (b) I don’t think they allow the fun of “hands on” customization.
So I would love to see a show where problems with home networking like mine would be the focus.
Of course, if I get responses on these forums that helps, that would also be great.
Thanks in advance,
