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 :-)
Watch the video below if you are still trying to figure out if you can do it yourself. We have filmed the entire assembly process from start to finish for one of the APU boxes. Enable subtitles for detailed instructions.
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.
