At least this currently "does" have the "microsoft" solution (crash? reboot router)...

Yeah...

No! Just keep up instead! I'm struggling too...

Grr...

Thx for the honest reply. ;-) ... Yeah, hoping they don't do stuff with one's data.... Anyway, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you to make it.

Hmm... maybe I'm really just getting old.
I guess it is just easier to stick to stuff that you already know by heart than learning new stuff that might not yet be capable of doing everything you're used to.
I'm also not that much into networking and I haven't followed nftables development enough to judge.
Also, if the existing problem is instability, then I'd recommend something more established/mature/stable.... :wink:

Thanks for the reply.
I'm all for FOSS. I actually hate when projects don't succeed, seeing that honest people initiated them...
FOSS to me is almost a religion, that is how pure it is, developers giving good stuff to the world of kind of a finer class of computer users...
You can see here: Nftables or Iptables/Ebtables for a simple linux bridge? that I offered to test (sadly I may not be a good enought tester...), exactly for that reason.
Also I tried to seek advice over where some people suggest Nftables (but possibly not for a linux bridge involving setups):
ERROR: sys-apps/iproute2-4.5.0::gentoo failed (compile phase
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1040708.html#7899384
Nftables is a sane project, but if there is nowhere to learn how to do my simple setup which involves linux bridge, I will have to go the more established/mature/stable way as you say. Thanks again.
