OrangePiZero OpenWRT + Docker Router


The Orange Pi Zero was intended primarily for headless IoT applications, so it’s the perfect mini remote vpn server solution when self hosting a small list of web apps or accessing your local network. With a tiny 48 x 46mm footprint this is a device that can quite literally fit in your pocket. The Orange Pi Zero offers the rarely seen Allwinner H2 version. During recent wireguard speed test this device surprised us with exceptional download speeds far beyond it’s competition.. Like the H3, the H2 has four Cortex-A7 cores clocked to 1.2GHz, as well as a Mali-400 MP2 GPU that clocks in at 600MHz. This is a great affordable small DIY web hosting board that can run everything from Nextcloud, Mattermost and various media servers on a local network or remote access setup. We ship the Orange Pi Zero with an a mainline OpenWRT and Docker build.


Custom VPN Routers

Secure Networking, Self Hosting and Remote Access - all in one.

These aren’t your traditional Wifi Routers. They may not look as intimidating as the latest consumer grade WiFi router but inside the box you’ll find more CPU power, RAM and storage capabilities than other traditional routers at the same price point.  Our customized VPN routers are built to be a powerful all in one solution to VPN tunneling, self hosting, and remote access – bundled into a single easy to use solution.

Powered by OpenWRT and Docker, these customized VPN routers provide you the ability to do things traditional WiFi router manufacturers never dreamed of. These personal computers have been repurposed as powerful networking tools that can tunnel OpenVPN and Wireguard, provide remote VPN access, deploy Docker applications, serve as NAS boxes, host a public website, or simply act as a Wifi router.

Docker empowers these OpenWRT routers so you can bring the cloud on-site and take back control of your data with easy deployment of self-hosted web applications and remote access VPN tools. Docker is one of the most versatile and stable platforms for any DIY web host and we provide both new and advanced users the open-source tools they need to start self-hosting virtual web apps with Docker. Start using private cloud storage directly on your router with Nextcloud or Seafile, self host your password manager with Bitwarden, or customize home automation with the IoT apps like  HomeAssistant or Domoticz – all from a single router.

When we compared WireGuard VPN download performance against some of today’s most popular VPN routers the results were surprising. Encryption and VPN tunneling is resource intensive and the added power found in our customized VPN routers out performed today’s top selling consumer brands by a long shot.

PrivateRouter’s easy Remote VPN access options allow you to secure countless apps behind Wireguard without risk of exposing them to the public. Taking control of your own data is one of the most powerful and effective ways to regain your privacy in a time when “Big Data” is watching everything. Take back control of your wireless freedom with the power of open source firmware OpenWRT and Docker.
