Open Source Routers
Your average of-the-shelf router is unreliable, has limited functionality due to manufacturer lock-down and potentially has multiple software vulnerabilities. Manufacturers of the commodity routers don't have any incentives in patching software bugs, performance bugs or even serious security holes. Once the router is sold, there's no reason for the manufacturer to keep spending money on development and security.
This leaves consumers defenseless and pushes them to buy a new router every couple of years.
This is one of the main reasons for running your own Open Source router. Hardware and Software that puts you in control 100%.
Enjoy safer networking, and the wealth of functionality that you have never had before.
Open Source software like pfSense or OPNSense gives you continuous open source community support, and a long life of your device. You won't need to spend money for many years to come, because software updates are released regularly.
Imagine never needing to reboot your router ever again. APU2/APU3 and TLSense devices are designed for stability, extensibility and security. These routers should last you for decades.
