This router is top notch. GREAT JOB Devs! The firmware is really good!
Seriously. I used ddwrt on a tplink…(I would advise no one trust the firmware in these.) Then switched to a netgear R6400 which had the worst firmware in the world (Took 5 min+ to boot up and was very slow/unstable).
I am a little confused about the firewall. I have version 8.0. Now all the settings are set to allow all for outgoing, incoming, and internal Lan (i think)? I ran a grc shields up and everything is stealthed which is good. For safe measure I followed routersecurity.org’s instructions for blocking SMB, FTP, Telnet, SSH, RDP, and TFTP. Since GRC shields up says im stealth is it still worth inputting these rules in the router?
Does the content blocker self update? Can I load a list from text or excel file of domains to block?
Sorry if all this has already been answered before. I am really new here. The Vlan feature is great! I am trying to make sure my router is setup securely. I am using this as a home router on a fiber line. It was this or a ubiquity.
Big thanks to routersecurity.org for helping me decide on which to get! Thank you for your help.
