Hi I am using openvpn mainly as my travel router. Currently I’m using qotom installed with full fledge sophos to establish site2site and a slate as the wifi AP.
Now my problem is that, the qotom device is bulky and heavy.
Brume might solved my problem as the openvpn throughput is sufficient.
But my problem is that, in the places where they only have wifi as WAN, I will need to use 2x slate with Brume to allow it to connect to WiFi as WAN and the other slate to act as AP.
Is there any recommendations or out of the box supported USB wifi that Brume can use so it can connect to hotel WiFi as WAN? Preferably with 5GHz band support.
802.11ac, AP use, USB, and “reliable” are pretty much an impossible set of requirements.
Are you sure you can’t use a single GL-AR750S?
As long as:
The STA and the AP are on the same channel
You’re willing to accept the repeater effect
I would think a single GL-AR750S would suffice.
The one case I can easily think of is if the channel to which you are obtaining 802.11ac service from is changing. In that case, use of a USB-attached, 802.11ac adapter in STA mode would be able to mitigate that issue.
What I wanted to do. To use slate as wifi bridge for brume so slate LAN as Brume WWAN. Brume will run openvpn client, And then, use the same slate to transmit processed VPN traffic to Mobile phone as an AP
My apologies for not getting back with you quicker – with the US Holiday and some bad weather here near San Francisco, things were a bit of a mess. Let me look more carefully at my Brume’s configuration approach and I’ll sketch it out for you in the next day or two. Are you comfortable editing the config files directly or do you use the GUI for configuration?
