Building your own router from scratch can be a fun and rewarding experience!
When you buy a router from us, assembly and OS installation are free of charge; however, many of our customers still choose to build the router and install the operating system themselves.
We think this is great! It's a learning experience that gives you a complete understanding and control over your networking. Aside from a warm and fuzzy feeling :-)
If you are not sure if you can do it yourself, watch the video below. We have filmed the entire assembly process from start to finish for one of the APU boxes.
As you see, building a router from scratch is not as hard as people imagine. If you want to build your own, consider using our router builder to select the hardware components. We can assemble the router for you or send you parts for self-assembly.
