Hello I have a question about the dns
I have a router working with DNS of OpenDNS exist any trouble with this?
No troubles. Firewalla will just use any upstream DNS configured in your router. I see this is a complement between Firewalla and OpenDNS
Simple mode does work on a Netgear R6400 v2 with DD-WRT flashed.
Linksys EA9500 / Firmware Version: 184.108.40.206574 / Simple Mode - works
works on my MikroTik
From our user Edgewater 4550, not compatible with simple mode
From our user: Netgear R6300 works perfectly
anyone tested orange rrouter : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orange_Livebox
Works fine on AVM Fritz!Box 6490 Cable and 7490 DSL in simple mode.
Works with my MediaLink Router very well. I can block or allow ip addresses with the beta version of the software. I would not have prefered to have the software without the allow feature, thats because I wanted this to protect my own web server. I use Firewalla plus Iptables on my Raspberry Pi computers. I only like my cell phone and my other computers to access the wbe severs on my Pi computers. But if I want to share my audio files I just have to enter the allowed ip address on the firewalla.
Anyone got Samsung / SmartThings Connect Home (or connect Home pro) Wifi Mesh working with any of the Firewalla modes?
Good morning, I would like to purchase the Firewalla Bule Plus, but I don't see my FRITZ!Box 7530 router among the compatible routers. Could you confirm that it is still configurable in DHCP mode or other way? Do I lose any functionality? if so, which ones?
AVM Fritzbox 6591 on fw 7.21 work perfectly in Simple mode (Firewalla Blue in Beta fw 1.9171)
Has anyone setup the Firewalla Blue Plus with a Linksys EA8300? I don't see it mentioned on the compatibility list as a Yea or Nay.
Firewalla Blue + works perfectly with Netgear Nighthawk RAX70 in Simple Mode.
I have just received my T-Moble, 5G gateway. I wanted to know if Firewalla Red would work with it. You cannot disable DCHP. In fact, you cannot do much of anything except use it as is. This is why I want to get a Firewalla product. It is the:
NOK 5G21 Gateway
HW ver: 3TG00739B
PN: 3TG00779AA RV: BB
ASUS RT-AX88U working fine no issues.
Linksys EA8300 works with Blue+ perfectly.
I think the DHCP cells for eero v1 and v2 also need to point to the "LIMIT-DHCP" information. At least I had to when I was using Blue with eero v2.
The list says Huawei hg659 doesn't work in simple mode, but I just tested by turning off ARP attack protection and looks to be working. Am able to block internet on 1 device and its showing the traffic as well.
Anyone have experience using a Firewalla Blue Plus on the AT&T Fiber BGW320-505?
@rolando This compatibility page only apply to simple/DHCP modes. If you have the Gold and it is in the router mode, all you need to worry about is to make sure the Deco can be in AP/Bridge mode. That's pretty much yet. (only very very few WiFi you get can't do AP/bridge mode)
Great thank you. That’s a relief. I’ll reply back once I get everything setup. I don’t expect delivery until another week or so.
I'm happy to report that my FW Gold does work with my new TP-Link Deco XE75 Pro AXE5400 Mesh System in Router Mode on the FW Gold with AP Mode on the TP-Link.
My new Xfinity XB8 in bridge mode works with FWG. Can't wait for the new FWG+ so I can leverage my 2GB speed.
