I think this is a wrong forum but I got to ask anyway :smile: Synology just came out their own router base & software. Does anyone can develop same type of linux boot so we can use synology router software?

 

thanks all

I dont think that is really needed. You have a lot of custom router firmware out there that has been in development for years. Synology's interface looks good, but how many times do you actually touch router after you set it up?

I like Synology router because it has a good web filtering feature. It can block http & https. With Squid Linux base image, I cannot block https at all. Also Synology router has a nice GUI & I don't have to type a lot of command like other linux base image

The Synology router looks to offer some nice features, I had just bought a new Asus AC3100 router if i had known that synology had its own router i would have gotten that instead.

 

now it might be possible to do the same with the router software and as was done for the NAS but is it really worth it giving the router is only 200 and i think you would wind up spending almost that much to build something similar with probably some better specs but is it needed not sure unless someone ported it to be able to install on other branded routers like DD-WRT has done for years that would be cool just not sure anyone wants to put that much work into it. i think driver support would be the real issues since most routers chipset drivers are not open source and able to be ported easily to work

 

DD-WRT is nice and very powerful but with out some work tweaking its not going to have the traffic details and monitoring that they synology has also synology router seems to have some more in-depth web filtering and a much nicer interface. recently for the routers i've had DD-WRT has been very buggy, mostly WiFi has been shitty.
