Good Day Everyone,
First I want to say its very difficult for me to believe how easy it was to configure Firewalla.
I have configured Sonic-wall and Cisco stuff in my past and it was rough bumpy ride however with Firewalla I was in a constant shock as it was truly plug and play. I have been talking to all my friends and colleagues to purchase this. I also want to share I currently have two Asus On-Hub routers SRT-AC1900 and I currently have Verizon fios, to my surprise in simple mode Firewalla works out of the box without any complex configuration or even DHCP mode enabled.
For anyone who is looking to try this, I have the following configuration.
Router 1 Asus SRT-AC1900 Asus On-Hub as the primary router where the FIOS Cat 6 is plugged in the Internet port and all of the DHCP is completed on this router.
The Second SRT-AC1900 Asus On-Hub is connected via Mesh(wireless) as an access point and I have added Firewalla to the LAN port of this router and all of my LAN traffic is captured via the ARP mode as I am using the simple mode. In this configuration I am able to monitor all network activity with all devices connected to my network, stop and allow new devices and also able to use all the functionality provided by Firewalla.
Thank you again Firewalla team for making a great product.
