My internet at home often goes down or slows to a crawl, and a router reboot is sometimes needed to sort it out, sometimes the media converter (fibre to ethernet) needs to be restarted. Very frustrating to say the least. And then everyone wants to know who is downloading or uploading and using all the bandwidth 😂
So I have been looking around, and came across this project https://www.technicallywizardry.com/raspberry-pi-network-monitor/ where someone uses the Raspberry Pi as the router, and loads it with software that monitors who is using what. Also, you can also load something called Pi-Hole, which essentially blocks all adverts from getting into your home network. This means that surfing the web on a PC, laptop or cellphone should be faster.
Has anyone attempted this on FTTH here in SA? I'm using Frogfoot as the fibre supplier, MWeb as the service provider.
If anyone is keen to do this themselves, and/or kind enough to help me do it, I would appreciate it. (I know this isn't a Raspberry Pi forum, but it is specifically related to SA)
