Slate Router


Just got my Slate router a few days ago and I am thoroughly pleased! This thing is awesome!!

I watched a YT video by NetworkChuck setting up a RPi travel router using OpenWRT months ago. I would have done this but can’t get a 8Mb 64bit RPi at this time. The last one I bought was around $170USD back last summer to setup piHole. I also have it running OpenVPN and as an wireless access point.

Hands down, the Slate is the winner!!

Eagerly awaiting the GL-AXT1800!

Looks like the ideal feature set and form factor for travel. :+1:

The slate AX looks real thick. Any reason as to why? Is it for cooling?

Mostly for cooling. There’s a mini fan for active cooling…

Ahhh ok. I had a feeling. Very nice. Thank you Pan.

That slate plus looks nice. How does it compare to the Beryl and Brume for OpenVPN speed?

In theory, Slate Plus(GL-A1300)'s OpenVPN speed might reach 25Mbps, and its WireGuard speed might reach 192Mbps. So it will be better than Beryl , but worse than Brume.

Ah thanks for the reply.
