How to Host an OpenVPN or WireGuard VPN Server using Brume 2

VPN Cascading is when a VPN connection is passing through more than one VPN server at the same time. Each VPN is limited to concealing one public IP address at the same time, therefore if a router is limited to processing a single VPN at a time, users will need one additional VPN router for every server the data passes through to conceal each server’s public IP address.

Using Fiber Optic Internet on Flint (GL-AX1800) OpenWrt Home Router

Recently switched to CenturyLink for their affordable fiber service, but I don’t want to use the router/modem they provide. Therefore, I figured out how to use fiber with Flint (GL-AX1800) router instead. When it comes to fiber optic internet, your service provider will install an optical network terminal (ONT) for you.
