FunBox 3 + router z OpenVPN

    Hello everyone!

    I plan to drop all connections on the network via VPN (NordVPN). I have optical fiber and FunBox 3.0 which (from what I know) unfortunately does not support PPTP, L2TP or OpenVPN.

    Therefore, it plans to buy a router that will serve:
    1) to connect to NordVPN;
    2) as a signal repeater from FunBox - all devices will be connected to this router so that traffic goes through VPN;
    3) to share a USB / Ethernet connected printer on the network.

    I was thinking about buying the Asus RT-AC51U - is this a good idea? Will it even work in such a configuration?

    Best regards and thank you for the answer!

    What connection speed are we talking about because AC51U has only 100Mbps ports. The second issue is the router must have the ability to support a typical VPN client or so-called / VPN Client.

    Thank you for the quick reply!
    The connection speed is 100Mbps. According to Asus, the router has a VPN Client (https://www.asus.com/Networking/RTAC51U/specifications/).

    Since 100Mbps is not a problem for you, you can take asus, This is not a "jet" but a budget solution. Also, there is nothing to demand from him the properties of a "multimedia harvester".

    Here something does not fit ... Funbox will have to do only for unnecessary NAT (something like a bridge only with nat), but unfortunately you will miss (funbox 2 could be skipped).

    Asus WAN connect to the Funbox LAN port, otherwise you will not set up a VPN connection. Asus works as a router, not a repeater.

    Ok, that explains a lot ... FunBox and router are to be in two different rooms, there is no option to connect them with a cable :(
    Can this be solved differently?

    How can two devices not be connected? Do you stand next to you and patch up !? Use the next device (PLC or repeater) to extend the wireless network.

    This is a specific case because they are in two different rooms.
  • Network and Internet Specialist
    The PLC is used if you cannot connect the LAN cable.

    Question for what? Asus must be connected to WAN for this Clien VPN functionality to work.
  • Network and Internet Specialist
    It may be possible to use WiFi from Livebox as a regular internet and asus connection via VPN. The networks will be in different rooms and the connection between the asus and the livebox will be via PLC.

    How to convert or skip Funbox 2.0 in Bridge, as Heinzek mentioned?

    It's not possible.

    You can omit it by replacing it with a router with a VDSL modem (in the case of internet delivered over the telephone line)

    In the Internet option after fiber optic router with Vlan support is enough
    These include, for example, TP-Link routers in options with IPTV, routers with OpenWrt / LEDE and DD-WRT

    Hello, the problem may not be identical, but the solution seems to be similar. Also, as the author, I am the unfortunate owner of the FUNBOX 3.0 router, fiber optic internet, so the device mentioned is necessary in my network due to the built-in ONT. In addition, the phone and television also from ORANGE so it can not be easily disposed of. Range ... massacre, option purchased 300 mbit / s 250 achieved on the latest laptop at home only in the room where there is a router, the signal to the adapted attic does not come practically at all. On the net, I got advice on how to connect a second router to FB 3.0 to somehow improve network coverage. In this case, the selected equipment is purely experimental, because I had one in stock and I just wanted to check if I would be able to force such a system to work. At the moment the network looks as follows:

    FUNBOX 3.0
    FunBox modem IP address 192.168.1.1
    LAN subnet mask 255.255.255.0
    starting IP address 192.168.1.100
    final IP address 192.168.1.254
    WPA2-PSK / AES encryption
    MAC address filtering enabled
    DHCP enabled

    to FUNBOX connected via Ethernet LAN-LAN router TP-Link TL-WR740N v4 router with dd-wrt uploaded as AP

    Local IP Address 192.168.1.2
    Subnet mask 255: 255: 255: 0
    Gate 192.168.1.1

    DHCP disabled
    Encryption disabled (out of necessity, no internet after turning it on)
    MAC address filtering enabled

    To the merits, the internet is in FB 3 and in the AP, the signal has improved although I will combine with a better router (as I mentioned this was in stock) The problem is, however, that in no way can I turn on password authentication in the AP, and my only form protection is mentioned address filtering. It seems to me that I've tried to rip encryption in FB and AP in all ways, because it seems to me that this may be the reason. Encryption on the second network with FB is enabled (WPA2 / AES) and can be connected.

    Encryption offered by FB
    lack
    WPA2-PSK / AES
    WPA / WPA2 Mixed

    Encryption offered by AP Tp link
    lack
    WPA Personal
    WPA Enterprise
    WPA2 Personal
    WPA2 Enterprise
    WPA2 Personal Mixed
    WPA2 Enterprise Mixed
    RADIUS
    WEP

    I'm not a magician, and the configuration of existing home networks was limited to setting one router. Now, initially delighted with the launch of AP, he realizes that such an unsecured network has no right to exist. Please help someone with more experience.

    And you put the same ssid and protection on TL-WR740N? Reset it to factory settings and configure the same (LAN-LAN) and it must work.

    I have different Ssid networks, but as I mentioned, the Internet is in both FB and AP. What's more, address filtering here and here is enabled, and other devices have been set to connect and this difference does not bother. At the moment, everything is ok except for the lack of encryption. What encryption exactly would you enable in FB and AC? I gave all the possibilities in the previous post. pzdr

    The problem turned out to be dd-wrt in Tp-link. After uploading Gargoyle, everything works as it should.
