Right now, the NanoPi R5S performance information is widely available in Chinese. Therefore, I decided to make this post, hope it will be useful if you are looking for this piece of information.

In the video, I am using the latest FriendlyWRT released on August 3, 2022. It is a fold of OpenWRT developed by Friendlyelec.

NanoPi R5S FriendlyWRT Performance
I run the WAN to LAN test a few times and the result is different from one to another. It looks like there are stability problem that FriendlyElec team need to fix.
For Wireguard VPN and OpenVPN, the result is stable. The OpenVPN throughput is at 150Mbps and Wireguard VPN is around 610 Mbps.

You can watch the full video to see how I upgrade the FriendlyWRT to the latest version as well as configuring the LAN1 port as a WAN port (2.5GbE).
