Re: USB WLAN-Adapter for Raspberry Pi

I have used PowerLine (Devolo) adapters in some circumstances but in this use case I can't guarantee that a power socket will be available in the right place. Unfortunately PowerLine adapters aren’t recommended to use with extension leads but could still be used for the Pi PSU to get the Pi in the o...

Re: USB WLAN-Adapter for Raspberry Pi

Thanks Roberto, it does look like I can buy the ALFA from Amazon but ideally I'd like a more compact adapter. I'm intending this Pi/Adapter would be located in a place where Wi-Fi reception is 'possible' but poor strength (thick walls, line of sight issues, etc.) so it would make WiFi more usable (a...

USB WLAN-Adapter for Raspberry Pi

I would like to build a Wi-Fi repeater/extender/access point based on a Raspberry Pi Model 3B+ with IPFire and an additional USB WLAN-Adapter. The HCL for USB WLAN-Adapters https://wiki.ipfire.org/hardware/networking seems not to have been updated recently and I’m unable to find anything on the list...

Re: Configuring firewall rules for Cloudflare DNS

I'm currently avoiding the Cloudflare issues by configuring my router as the primary upstream resolver rather than Cloudflare, although the router itself uses Cloudflare! Not sure if this problem arises due to the Suricata switch but when I've had problems I've seen messages in the unbound log of th...

Re: Configuring firewall rules for Cloudflare DNS

Hi Mentalic and thanks for the update. There are certainly some issues with Cloudflare and core 131 but I don't currently believe this is related as I've had the problem with at least 128, 129 and 130. I was hanging on hoping that the Suricata release might address the issue but it doesn't. I now ha...

Configuring firewall rules for Cloudflare DNS

I’m currently running IPFire in a Green/Red/Orange configuration with networks configured as follows Green - 10.0.0.0/16 Red - 10.1.0.0/16 Orange - 10.2.0.0/16 In order to mitigate against possible DNS highjacking attempts (and applications trying to use Google’s DNS servers irrespective of what I w...

Re: Ipfblocklist (IP Blocklists for IPFire)

I just came to the conclusion that using BOGON_FULL blocks 192.168.0.0/16, i.e. you can't access machines behind IPFire in that network as well ;) It's a two-way block. 11:28:53 DROP_BOGON_FULL red0 TCP 192.168.178.x 192.168.178.y 80(HTTP) In my case I can't reach the Fritzbox modem, not too much o...
