Hey there, Tailscalers!
I wanted to set up a Talscale Subnet Router at home and wanted to know if a Raspberry Pi 3 would be sufficient to run as a Subnet router. I also have Raspberry Pi 4 but would prefer to use it for something else if the RPi3 is capable enough.
I’ve got a Pi3 as a subnet router & exit node running Raspbian. Works without issue
Thanks for your feedback. I was going to set up an RPi4 as a Tailscale Subnet Router but since the RPi3 is fine I’ll just use that instead. The RPi4 can be used for another more intensive application.
Quick questions from me on the same topic
- Is it 3B+or just the 3? Would the B+ offer any advantage?
- How do you folks power it? micro USB, PoE with Pi Hat or PoE splitter?
No difference unless you’re using it as an exit node, the 3 will potentially give you less throughput than the 4.
Thanks . Nope just as a subnet router. All very new to me I’m assuming I can just install Pi lite version too, I will run it headless 8000 miles away, just to get past CGNET. My Router there doesn’t do Tailscale. I’m currently using Wireguard with a static Ip.
