If your router is compatible with simple mode, please DO NOT USE THIS.

This Experimental Mode will only work with a few routers that are not compatible with Simple Mode.

- Fixed a bug that some time may not be able to get public IP.
Fixed a bug that iOS keys may be corrupted at some rare conditions.
Fixed a bug that Android initial notification settings may be incorrect.
Fixed a bug that date/time format may not be localized.
I have a question about the enhanced simple mode. I have a synology 2600 router and wanted to see if this would be an option that can be enabled during the initial setup process or would I have to complete setup with DHCP mode and then switch to enhanced simple mode?
I ask before I really prefer to use the simple mode vs DHCP mode.
The best way is to
1. Turn on DHCP server on Synology.
2. Tap on monitor button and change mode to enhanced simple mode
Should work nicely with synology, we tested this unit in our office.
Ok, sounds good. Thank you!
hi firewalla! I do see that you need box version 1.963, but I have version 1.961 (just ordered). How do I upgrade that? I am really curious about the safe search option.
Alpha to beta will happen very soon now. Please wait a few days.
