Great device with one caveat

Pros: Powerful device
OpenWRT / Lede pre-installed
OpenWRT / Lede upgradable
Compact
Built in firewall (not just a NAT device)
WISP mode
USB port supports a webcam, storage device, or cellular modem

Cons: Chinese company

Other Thoughts: Great little device, but with one caveat. GL.iNet is a Chinese based company. The built in firmware has a built in Dynamic DNS service on, and cannot be disabled. This could report your IP address to GL.iNet every time you power up the device. It also has some open firewall rules and other settings that seem related to The Great Firewall.

Great little device if you flash an updated version of the OpenWRT firmware onto it. That gets rid of the Chinese specific settings / Great Firewall of China settings that leaves the router and hosts behind it open to risks that a normal router would not be open to.

I've used it to safely connect multiple personal devices to a hotel network with the assurance that my devices can communicate with each other, but cannot be hacked from other hotel guests. This device, both default firmware and upgraded OpenWRT firmware, has a full stateful firewall, not just NAT, to protect your devices.
