Dual Gigabit Ethernet NICs CM4 Carrier Board for Raspberry Pi CM4 with 4GB RAM/ 32GB eMMC
The Dual Gigabit Carrier Board designed for Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 is equipped with Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports and dual USB 3.0 ports, making it suitable for soft router applications.
We have pre-installed a Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 with 4GB RAM and 32GB eMMC to enable fast boot-up times and a smooth overall experience.This CM4 carried board is ideal for HTPC makers, Linux developers, software router enthusiasts, and the majority of regular Raspberry Pi users.
Due to the high level of integration of this product, it is recommended to use it with a heat sink, which will allow it to maximize its performance.
Additionally, the Mini Router based on this product, comes with a PC/ABS enclosure with an aluminum alloy top and a large sink to cool the CM4 under extreme loads. It also provides better protection and is suitable for industrial applications.

The Dual Gigabit CM4 Carrier Board designed for Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 is equipped with dual gigabit ethernet ports and dual USB 3.0 ports, making it suitable for soft router applications, while keeping the hardware to a minimum. We have pre-installed a Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 with 4GB RAM and 32GB eMMC to enable fast boot-up times and a smooth overall experience. You can also replace the installed raspberry pi CM4 with any other CM4 of your choice!
It features a variety of I/O peripherals for more expandability such as MIPI CSI, MIPI DSI, micro-HDMI to connect displays/ cameras, a standard 9-pin USB 3.0 header for more USB expansion, a micro-SD card slot, and an FPC connector while maintaining a compact form factor! This CM4 carried board is ideal for HTPC makers, Linux developers, software router enthusiasts, and the majority of regular Raspberry Pi users.
You can flash OpenWrt firmware to the eMMC of Compute Module 4 and turn this board into a software router!
OpenWrt is an open-source Linux operating system that runs on embedded devices/ routers. It offers more features, performance, and security than a traditional router. It has a filesystem that’s fully writable and includes a package management system.
You can make use of these packages to suit your applications in various ways. Once you connect this board to your home network and access the router from a web browser, you will be presented with a beautiful and interactive dashboard as follows.
You can navigate in this dashboard, and you will have access to a bunch of features such as:
- Increase overall network performance when multiple devices are connected
- Share files between devices via an external storage drive connected directly to the router
- Increase network security
- Run a BitTorrent client from the router
- Connect a printer directly to the router to create a networked printer
- Limit bandwidth usage of a particular device in the network
- Active queue management
- Real time network monitoring
- Create Dynamic DNS
- Set Up a VPN client or server
- Block ads on the network
