Please continue to also provide devices without WiFi

Let me start with expressing that I really like your devices, mainly because the firmware provides a very good mixture of the open and configurable openwrt base and a easy to use firmware UI on top (to an extent that I wonder why not more companies go this way…).

Personally I own the Brume 2 (without wifi) and several other gl.inet routers, some of which I use with WiFi turned off, as I do try to avoid wireless when possible.

I know that there is much demand for wifi routers and I just want to say that there is at least some market space for non wifi devices.

Possible reasons:

  • preferring cable for stability and speed reasons.
  • avoiding wireless signal for health reasons
  • setting up wireless with a separate device in an optimized position different from the router
  • avoiding the specific problem that an active USB3 port may interfere with wifi

Personally I’d like to have a complete non wifi option when choosing a device (alternatively also a hardware switch to completely deactivate wifi would be interesting).

No. please don’t. Just look at all these people buying the Brume and then asking for it to support various WiFi dongles. If you don’t want WiFi, then just turn it off for god’s sake.


JFC. Let me guess: #JetFuelCantMeltSteelBeams, aimirite?

Yeah, I echo that. You don’t want Wi-Fi you say? Then turn off the radios. GL GUI → Wireless → {5/2.4GHz} → Off. Done.
