When I arrived home the other day my wife asked me if I was expecting a package, I responded with no. After opening the package, I realized it was the RIPE Atlas Probe v3 I had applied to host nearly two months ago.
Setup was straightforward, I logged into the RIPE Atlas account and registered the probe. I plugged in the USB and Ethernet cables into my router and waited. It took about an hour for me to start seeing measurements on the site.
If you have an extra port on your router/switch, I would definitely recommend becoming a host.
