I ordered it with express delivery (another 10 euro).

Great! Keep me posted about functionalities and ease of use.

Could it be that these bad reviews come from non techy people?

Maybe you should contact support and ask if it true about this VPN issue.

Have a look at this one. A hell of a router.

https://omnia.turris.cz/en/

never heard about that one. Spec. look great. Do you own that one?

Do you know if the NOIA router is just available for purchase?

This is a reply from NOIA:
Hello, Hugues. First version of NOIA Edge will be some open source router (not manufactured by NOIA's design) on which we'll test our software. Final version of NOIA Edge will of course be designed by our professionals, have at least 8 TB storage and other features. Yes, it will be for sale and it will approximately cost $300.

I got it before noon today :Big Grin just set it up. During update it failed, but nothing serious. The updates will just be installed later. As I could see there are many packages including VPN.

I will let you know how it goes during the next days.


Okay about the NOIA router.... but it has to wait to some other year.

Yes it has to wait till 2019, but a router with 8TB of storage for $300 onli is very cheap.
But eventually I will not wait that long.
If your review is OK I will order the OMNIA.

I will not recommend Turris Omnia to everyone. It's running Linux and for "advanced" setup you have to be ready to use SSH to connect to the router and issue Linux commands.

It comes with a simple userinterface using your browser that is very simple.
It then has a more advanced userinterface for your browser using LuCI that gives you many options for all you can dream about.
What is sad is that my Asus router came with a standard interface that was able to setup a USB disk with permissions for every user directly using your browser. It could read NTFS disk (windows) without any problems. You can't do that directly with Omnia. You have to go through SSH and do "something" that I haven't had time to figure out yet.

So my first impressions is that it's not really looking fancy, but it performs well so far (not even 24 hours has passed) and for standard setup it works smoothly. It's disappointing that NTFS for external USB drives is not supported right out of the box. If one is willing to spend some time I think almost anything you want can be handled by the router. If you just want plug and play I would not recommend the router. The advanced interface is not as user friendly as Merlin for Asus og the standard Asus itself.

Thanks for this review. I still consider buying one. I will figure out how to configure to attach external disks.

Good luck. Yes regarding external drivers. It can for sure be fixed.

I have tried to set up NTFS access to the USB drive and to set up a miniDLNA it's all possible and not too hard to do, but you have to go through SSH and be ready to do Linux commands. Some necessary services were not running was among one of the problems. Read the guidelines and then think about what it is you try to do and adjust to your needs. A tip is to go to the System->Startup and find the services you change and then press restart. That is needed to make sure your changes are refreshed at the client end.

Looks fun to play around in this router.
