I don't normally recommend anything, but I have just run into a neat 
little device that has solved a problem for me, so I thought I'd mention 
it on-list in case it can help someone else.

I'm just a happy user: no connection with the product otherwise.

I am using it to solve a VoIP problem I have had running an extension to 
our new hosted VoIP from a residential 4G connection in very rural Spain 
(we used to have WiMAX with a fixed IP - but no more, just 4G but quite 

It's tunnelling my phone using a commercial VPN provider and bypassing 
inward VoIP blocking. Not against their T&C or anything, I suspect it's 
just blocked because it's 4G to protect their network, outgoing ports 
work but I receive no voice :)

This solution has stopped me banging my head against the wall trying to 
run various simultaneous different and colliding VPNs from my otherwise 
very good firewall. It just works.

Anyway the device is this:


Available from e.g. Amazon worldwide.

It's got WiFi and two NICs and USB and micro-USB power, and runs OpenWRT 
which is accessible at the second menu level and so it's highly 
tweakable: not that I have had to tweak it... it has many VPN providers 
pre-set and supports OpenVPN and Wireguard.

I paid €24 for one, at that price it can glue lots of stuff together.

Just thought I'd mention it. It's not a recommendation as such - it 
might break in a week - but I doubt it.

There's various other models.

And it's cute :)
