Untangle Club - Page 8

post #71 of 207
Hi there,

Putting together a Untangle router on an old IBM ThinkCentre:

P4 2.8ghz
1gig DDR ram
34gig HD

Need another NIC card and then it will be hooked up to the network. I installed the Untangle OS last night and I really like it. Looking forward to getting it on my network!

I'm finally using Untangle in my network. Sadly I'm disapointed that I cannot change my ISP default DNS servers to OpenDNS. Geez Untangle!

I run untangle on my Sig Rig, with Re-Router.

My setup will be modem -> Untangle -> DD-WRT router -> wired and wireless clients. Would it be better to disable DHCP on the router and let Untangle handle it, or should I let the router be the DHCP server?

Edit: After half a day of messing with Untangle's DHCP settings, I reran the wizard and configured it to act as a transparent bridge. It worked almost immediately after I switched some cables. DD-WRT's DHCP features are a lot more developed and easier to use.

Isn't the whole idea to use Untangle as the router or did you just want extras that untangle has for added protection?

Are you sure?

Also, I believe you have Untangle set as a DNS server to cache IPs. This should help performance since you no longer need to do an external DNS lookup after visiting a site.

Untangle isn't the primary router in this case. It just offers network protection.

To get the performance of a dedicate Untangle box, you want it to be the DHCP server. What DHCP features are you looking for?

Already fixed it duckie. Stupid thing was in 'basic' mode. Switched to advanced and I'm back on OpenDNS.

Just the basic stuff. I could not for the life of me get my internet working with Untangle in router mode. I'm also running it on pretty skimpy hardware (Pentium III Coppermine with less than 512 MB RAM.) In addition, I'll need to set up QoS and port forwarding in the near future. Are these services best assigned to the Untangle box or the router, and how much performance gain will I see if I set up DHCP on Untangle?

Hmmmm... it was stupid for being in basic mode?

When attempting to setup up Untangle as a router, did you connect directly to one of your PCs? Or did you try to use your DD-WRT router? If you were using your DD-WRT router, you need to do two things on the DD-WRT router:
1) Disable DHCP
2) Connect Untangle using LAN port (and not use the WAN port)

Yes, you may see a performance difference with DHCP on Untangle. You should be able to handle more open connections (8MB vs 512MB RAM) and over possible bandwidth (200MHz vs 800MHz?).

I was using the DD-WRT router, and did both of the things you mentioned. Just a note, when it's in transparent bridge mode like I have it now, it has to be connected through the WAN port, but I see what you're saying. Are there other things that I should be considering (conflicting DNS, etc.) that could be causing the jam?

I really would like to have it serve as the router. This time around I'll back up the settings on both machines and then commence tweaking. I have my PIII at the 933 MHz stock right now (power consumption is an issue.) Before Untangle, I had XP installed on it, and got it up to over 1 GHz with stock VCore. But enough about overclocking my lame hardware. I'm probably missing something blatantly obvious that's preventing the setup from working.

Edit: After about an hour of messing with it, I discovered that the internal NIC must have a static IP to work correctly. I'm still having one particular issue. My modem's IP is 192.168.100.1. I would like to set Untangle's IP to 192.168.100.2, but it won't connect when I do this. Right now, Untangle's IP is 192.168.1.2. If I can't get it working, no big deal, but it would be nice to have my modem, Untangle, and the router have similar addresses.
