I have finally decided to enter the 3D printing bandwagon. Having room for more hardware have always been the main inhibiting factor for not having done it longer ago. But with a little tidying up of the available space the impossible eventually became a reality. At least that was my reasoning, and the selection of a small resin printer seemed like an interesting choice in that respect, at least in what concerns the space occupied by the device itself.

When you decide to setup your own infrastructure in order to depend less on cloud providers, whether it be for saving money (depending on what you will be doing) or just for the sake of improving the technical knowledge, having more control, or both, you know you will be flying solo, at least to some extent.

As always I tend to be frugal with spending money in hardware, trying to go with what performs well and is just about enough for the job.
This led me to aim for WiFi gear that would both be somewhat popular and low cost, while at the same time having some hope of being hackable and reflashed to OpenWRT in the future. This was the reasoning when I decided to buy a couple of TP-LINK TL-WR841N routers (with v9 hardware at the time).
At first I set these up and played with the stock firmware, configuring one to play the roles of NAT, DHCP, DNS, firewall and so on, and the other to act solely as a WDS repeater, allowing WiFi coverage to be extended to the rest of the house.
