Hello to you,
I also bought the MV1000W online.
The MV1000 board provides some nice features such as a I2C, serial and GPIO interface.
A few projects, which previously ran on a Raspberry, can be implemented with this single board computer.
Pre-installed is a VPN client and server, which supports the OpenVPN and Wireguart protocol.
The performance is as specified by GL-iNet. As far as hardware and software are concerned, GL-iNet is quite transparent and has always been open to user problems and suggestions for improvement.
The team from Hong Kong and Shenzhen, PR China, ak GL-iNet, have brought something interesting to the market with the MV1000.GL-iNet tries to make it easy for the user with his own web frontend.
Unfortunately, the official firmware release lacks support for IPv6 protocol. Due to a DNS leak via VPN, it was deactivated in August 2020.
With Preservation you can re-enable IPv6 with the Beta or Nightly firmware for some features.
However, the housing is a medium disaster in terms of design, thermal and optical terms.
If you install additional packages, which generate additional running processes and CPU load, the heat loss which is generated in these small enclosures will no longer be able to go anywhere.
One or the other has already built a 14cm fan underneath, which makes A: impractical and B: even more noise.
Now I have drilled the small edge router for 24/7 use.
To transport the heat loss to the outside, I had to open the underside of the housing with a Dremel.
A large cooling pad fits between the backplate and an aluminum sheet.
The passive cooling pre-installed by GL-iNet has been modified a bit by me. Existing heat conduction pads were replaced by a little larger ones.
Thus, under load the AMR CPU reaches max 39C’ at a room temperature of approx 26C’.
Perhaps this is also a solution for one or the other.
Best regards from Germany.
