    What do you mean the AP is integrated into the router?   Is the AP the "wifi" part in your router? or it is a separate interface?   What is the router model?  we are very curious about this setup, never seen it before.  

    If the AP part is just the Wifi, then see if you have ipv6 active on your network. If you do, tap on + and turn ipv6 feature on in the firewalla app.

    Yes the AP is part of the router.
    It's a router from the Provider Swisscom.

    IPv6 is not active at the moment.
    It seems like its working now. 
    Just the Ad Block filter does nothing. 
    The social media block is working. 


    Thanks

    Hi, I have the same router and wonder how to install my Firewalla Gold. The router is a triple play integrated modem/router/AP from the provider Swisscom. The hardware behind is Askey : http://en.techinfodepot.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Askey_RTV1905VW

    Here is the link to the provider device description and specs : https://www.swisscom.ch/en/residential/products/smartphones/details.html/internet-box-2-11004392

    It's a great box, and it does definitely IPv6 but I'm not sure how that would help.

    Currently I do not use the phone vlans. Behind this box I have an ethernet switch with computers and TV Box (from the same provider. I don't think VLANs are used, maybe QoS but I don't know)

    My understanding is that (besides using simple/dhcp mode which I don't want otherwise I would use Firewalla Blue)my option is to plug the Firewalla between a LAN port and my Switch, disable the embedded WiFi AP and deploy my own Mesh with new hardware.

    There is also a DMZ configurable port which would be nice, but it doesn't allow traffic to get back in, too bad ! :

     

    Thanks for any help :-)
