    Anyone loaded openwrt or dd-wrt or other router firmware on a pi?

    I have wanted to do this though I would love to do SmoothWall or IPCop. Seems you need a USB Ethernet adapter to have two wired interfaces. I've always liked DDWRT and Tomato myself.

    Would use it as a smart AP. With a decent WiFi adapter like the TL-WN822N maybe , which has antenna , it can do the job well. Basically a router with 256/512mb ram and 8gb storage space. Most routers come with 4mb/8mb flash and 16/32mb ram.

    In theory it's your firewall, runs your PPOE connection and serves your wireless clients. All powered by a USB power adapter with a huge power bank

    I am not sure if a Raspberry Pi is the best suited to be used as a router, but if you really must I am sure it can. I personally would rather consider one of these:

    1. Banana Pi BPI-R1:
    http://www.banana-pi.org/r1.html
    - Doesn't have wireless, but has 4x gig LAN ports and 1x 100Mbps WAN port

    2. ZBT MT7621A OpenWRT router
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/NEW-...432866645.html
    - 4x gig LAN ports
    - 1x WAN port
    - 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz Wifi and decent speeds
    - Run OpenWRT firmware!

    ^^ this is the one I have been eyeing to replace my Mikrotik maybe eventually.

    Added a 'UPS' to my Pi yesterday

    Someone gave me a brand new battery for my Huawei B315 and I am running the Pi off the USB port as it handles my VPN. I also found a sentinel in the form of a teeny little spider keeping watch over my interwebz.

    Come at me, eskom! Muahahaha

    I wouldn't call that a UPS, battery backup is a better description to be honest.

    Hi All

    I have been loving my opensprinkler irrigation system running on Pi.

    I created my own pcb's to make things simple.

    pcb contains rtc and switch mode psu to power the pi off the 24Vac transformer.

    I have done 2 runs for the guys on the avforums of the pcb's , just add your transformer and any pi ( pi zero wireless should be most cost effective).

    we are trying to get another production run ready , i will need interest from at least 10 people to be able to make it worth my while to get pcb's manufactured.

    I don't do this as an income. This is a hobby I son't see me producing this in massive quantities, this is for hobbyists.
    I find the opensprinkler system a massive step up from the standard cheap irrigation controllers ,and with weather underground support and an android / IOS app you can save a lot of water and it makes your irrigation controller a closed box with nearly no local control needed apart from from your phone.

    I have also connected my pool pump , wellpoint pump and some lighting etc on some of the unused channels.

    They board i made has 16 channels built in.

    here is some information:

    https://www.avforums.co.za/index.php/topic,59088.0.html

    I have been keeping things organised by using this website to do " sales"

    http://tangtechnologies.spaza.co/pro...-circuit-board

    currently I have 0 stock left.

    let me know if there are any interest and i'll see if it would make sense to do another production run of 10 boards.

    board runs on standard opensource opensprinkler that can be downloaded from their github fro the Pi.

    here is a picture of a one of the guys installs:



    And an image of previous production run pcb's
