>how to start?
Get a computer to host on, decent internet, and a copy of Minetest 0.4.17.1

>What mods i should use?
Depends what server you want to make, and what hardware you have, some good building blocks is a good place to start.

>What wifi router i should use?
LOL don't host on WiFi. I'm pretty sure that's like a crime against humanity or something.

Do this: https://wiki.minetest.net/Setting_up_a_server

For VPS i recommend Digital Ocean. You may use HERESTHETHING as discount code to get $10 free. That equals two months on the smallest $5 server tier which works great for Minetest.

If it's anything like mine you'll get 200-500ms pings which won't be much good. Not to mention it's crazy unreliable, if you can't supply cable internet then you'll want to look into getting a VPS.

A dual core 3.16ghz system would be pretty good for running a minigames server provided you don't get crazy amounts of concurrent traffic, provided your internet is decent.

tested from where ...

just set up one, no mods, and let test some people,
about reaction and more ... then see also your hosting cpu usage, and other bottlenecks on the pc, use ssd for the system and minetest world + data

even raspberries work,
and why it need to be 4G wifi, and IF have to, then keep it nearby the host pc server, with cable ... or whatever

have fun
