Re: WAN Bonding with ROOter and OpenMPTCProuter

If it wasn't for this post I would have never known of this. I'm extremely surprised that this isn't a MUCH more popular thread honestly Glad you found the post useful! I'm amazed too at the relatively modest interest in what OpenMPTCProuter has to offer. I'm currently in an area with very limited ...

Re: WAN Bonding with ROOter and OpenMPTCProuter

Would be appreciative if you could recommend a VPS/hosting company? Hard to argue with Vultr, if you're in the U.S -- my current OMR VPS is running me $5/mo. Use whichever of their datacenters that's closest to you. Otherwise, have a look at the list of tested platforms in the OMR documentation: ht...

Re: WAN Bonding with ROOter and OpenMPTCProuter

I have dealt with load balancing/ failover configurations and a couple of times was thinking about multiple WAN aggregation scenarios but somehow every time in the end I simply could not justify the cost & complexity to achieve a decent result. Instead, every time I just switched to a faster/better...

Re: WAN Bonding with ROOter and OpenMPTCProuter

Unfortunately 99% of non-technical users would be lost on the server setup, let alone the client/server settings My apologies if I gave the impression that this was an "anyone can do it" sort of post. There's little documentation on OMR, and no step-by-step guides for deploying it, so for anyone wh...

Re: WAN Bonding with ROOter and OpenMPTCProuter

There are definitely plenty of good applications for the TP-Link multi-WAN, fail-over, load-balancing router. However, what that box does and what OpenMPTCProuter does are not the same thing. OMR is true link aggregation, i.e. if you have two Internet connections where each speed tests at 50 Mbps, t...

Re: WAN Bonding with ROOter and OpenMPTCProuter

And here's the follow-on post I did, about a month later, after moving to the x86 router box: If you missed my original post on this amazing upgrade to your ROOter setup (assuming you have at least two decent sources of Internet available), you might want to have a look at this post first whrl.pl/R...

WAN Bonding with ROOter and OpenMPTCProuter

Here's another post I did earlier this year on the ROOter forum, which is now a bit difficult to find. I did this post in late January, and I've since moved from the Raspberry Pi 4B to a Qotom x86 (i3) industrial PC with 4x gigabit Ethernet ports, 2x USB3 and 2x USB2 ports. OpenMPTCProuter needs an...

ROOter/OpenWRT Samba Cross-Platform Setup with a WINS Server

I posted this on the ROOter forum too, but given the single thread nature there, tutorials tend to get lost in the clutter. So, starting with this post -- I'm going to post guides here too for some additional staying power. :-) If your network consists of a mix of different operating systems, and i...

Re: Utilizing MC7455 and EM7565 Dual SIM

Do you know if that adapter can be purchased anywhere? Not finding it on Google.

Re: Utilizing MC7455 and EM7565 Dual SIM

The AT commands match my understanding, however if you look at the technical spec for the MC7455 you'll see that each of the two addressable SIM slots has a separate set of mPCIe pins assigned to it. Have you actually tested using two different SIM cards, and switching between them? I hope you're ri...
