Toggling network interfaces for ASUS routers via HTTP endpoint

I was looking for a way to segment some IoT devices from my main network and disable their network connections on demand programmatically. The Guest Network feature on the router does a good job of segmenting the network, so I wanted a way to turn the guest network’s interface off and on based upon conditions.

Example scenario: You have cloud-based IoT cameras and want to cease all traffic when you’re home.

This puts toggling any interface on the router behind an HTTP endpoint. Since an interface is created when a guest network is enabled, we can now enable and disable that network whenever we want.

Big news!

It was fun learning some ARKit, SceneKit, and SpriteKit the past few days… I used it to announce a thing!

New PC Build

I’m really happy with how this build turned out. It’s been about a decade since I had a new PC, so it’s been a long time coming.

Specs:

  • i5-7500 Quad-Core 3.4 GHz Kaby Lake
  • MSI GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
  • Samsung 960 PRO 512 PCIe NVMe M.2
  • Corsair 2x8GB DDR4
  • MSI Pro Series B250 PC MATE
  • Seasonic SSR-550RM 550W modular PSU
  • NZXT S340 Elite Mid Tower case
  • Two 140mm NZXT fans in the front, all four fans controlled by mobo

Thoughts:

  • I love the cable management features of the case.
  • The two case fans came with adapters for connecting directly to DC. I disconnected those and put them straight on the motherboard for speed control.
  • The case has two removable dust filters – one in the front and one under the PSU.
  • By using the M.2 for storage, I only had to plug in one module to the PSU – PCIe power for the GPU.
  • It’s very quiet, even with a total of 7 fans! (4 case, 1 CPU, 2 GPU)
  • The lights on the motherboard aren’t too impressive and only one color (white). Nicer models let you choose more.
