 Free Software Wireless-N Mesh Kit 5PK (TPE-R1300-5PK)

Are you looking to expand your wireless network or otherwise make it more resilient? We're now offering our TPE-R1300 wireless routers in a kit format with mesh networking support and a ready to use configuration out of the box. These mesh nodes are configured to work together and plug into any upstream network with internet access and a free ethernet port. All software is 100% free including the bootloader and the mesh nodes have the coveted Respect Your Freedom certification from the Free Software Foundation. The nodes are also supported by the most up-to-date free embedded GNU/Linux-libre distribution: LibreCMC.

LibreCMC was built from the Linux-libre kernel and a stripped down version of OpenWRT without any of the non-free bits. LibreCMC is the leading free software distribution designed for routers and other embedded devices available today.

Please note this kit includes five routers/nodes.

Have you ever thought about the quality of your ethernet cables? Often devices ship with lower quality cables and this can lead to connectivity problems down the road. Consider an upgrade and save yourself the trouble of diagnosing connectivity issues.

Connecting multiple PCs? Get our 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch. See our example diagram on connecting a switch to one of our routers (there is nothing to install or configure, just connect and go).

Different regions have different power standards and plugs. Select the one appropriate to your region. To use the USB port you will need more power than the stock adapter can provide. Upgraded power adapter options are available from us for some regions.
