  • Thanks for sharing OP. Bought one to replace my “Mango”.

    • Is this better than the Mango?

      • Yes i would be interested to know if this is worth the extra over the Mango that goes on special often

      • It has dual band 5Ghz/2.4Ghz wifi, where the Mango only has 2.4Ghz, that's the biggie for me. It probably has a faster CPU, hence can do faster VPN speeds, but I can't find the comparison page on the gl-inet website. It's there somewhere.

  • Is this good to use at home? The main router is at one end of the house and I use EoP adapters to bring the connection to the other side of the house which terminates with an Asus RT-N12 and was wondering if this could replace that.

      I can't speak for the hardware of Asus RT-N12 but absolutely yes you can replace it with one of the GL.iNet offerings.

      I think you'll connect your PoE to the WAN port on the GL. You keep the GL in its default Router mode and reap all its features on any devices connected to its two LAN ports and/or WiFi 2.4GHz and/or 5GHz; leverage the power of OpenWRT, applications, plug-ins, daemons, and security, VPN or force DNS over TLS from Cloudflare, et cetera.

      The reach of 5GHz is only alright for nearby rooms.

      I've disabled wireless on my NBN supplied modem/router and I am powering a GL-AR750S from the modem's USB port; rated for only 1A and if true that is a recipe for meltdown as the GL spec says 2A draw - well, no fire yet and it'll even teather & power a 1st gen iPhone SE.

      For those wanting to do the same, as in replace your modem's crap wifi, don't purposely put your modem in bridge mode if you have a Telephony/VoIP service registered on the modem, you'll lose it that way. Just piggyback the GL to one of the modem/router ethernet jacks.

      This is double NAT. But hey, no problems; nothing funny found about doing it like so.

      Also if you wish to be able to access your modem interface from the GL, before doing anything you can give your modem IP address 192.168.4.1 (netmask 255.255.255.0) - you access your GL on 192.168.8.1 by default.

      There's a bug with GL-AR750?(S) VPN, if you want to use MAC exclusions, you must run this mystery firmware (for the Slate only) which is newer than current 3.104 though who can tell.

      Make a habit of running ipleak.net test.
      I prefer software OpenVPN, more control.

      • I mean to say I prefer to use OpenVPN client on individual machines than trusting the GUI with all its settings/toggles interacting with one another in ways the user is not made immediately privy. That's just me. Otherwise its GUI actions do give me consistent, predictable results for all its scripted complexity under the hood.

        The AR750S will, in fact, take a 256GB (and up?) microSD card. It cannot file transfer at Blu-ray bitrates without significant buffering - I don't know where the bottleneck lies - hardware/firmware or just Samba ? (SMB2 needs forcing for Windows 10 machines; entails much tinkering via ssh and scp.)

        The AR750S is a hardy device. I messed around in its shell (and MicroPython, don't ask), I'll never take advantage of any OpenWRT-based router's full potential - better things to do with my life; cool story.

      • Small correction to avoid confusing people: I unconsciously wrote PoE — I've no experience with Power Over Ethernet though the AR750 supposedly accepts it as an option — writing PoE and not EoP per original question, no experience with Ethernet Over Power either for that matter, but it acts like a long run of Ethernet cable and then some, alright then.

        Addendum: Tethering an old iPhone SE (its blasted hotspot won't stay on; won't advertise its SSID, nothin') to the GL Slate via USB cable (on top of everything) gave all day 4G internet to its WiFi+LAN clients. 'Twas as easy as plug and play and truly set and forget. Although I can't recall if it's either-or or used as a backup gateway to the internet; thinking the former, unfortunately.

  • Any chance of a new code?
