Finally, an open-source mesh Wi-Fi system that you get to control, monitor, hack, and even understand! You know the deal: you get a pair of routers, and you give one of them (the hub) access to the Internet by plugging it into your modem. Then you place the other one (the satellite) somewhere else. The satellite connects to the hub, and voilà! Your house is bathed in Wi-Fi.
But that’s just the beginning. Add satellites—including weatherized outdoor
stations—to your heart’s content. Leverage Maxwell’s support for a wired,
gigabit Ethernet backhaul to shore up connectivity in those hard-to-reach areas.
Swap out dual-band routers for tri-band routers as appropriate. It’s your
network! And, best of all, you’ll have the OpenWRT community looking out for you
the whole time. Unlike most other mesh Wi-Fi solutions, Maxwell runs on
standard, open-source code that’s completely transparent and customizable. You
can see what’s connected to what, at what speeds, and with what level of
reliability. And, if necessary, you can
ssh in to fix those configs or add
functionality to the mesh.
Maxwell is user-friendly, powerful, and secure. No Bluetooth. No cloud. No app. No BS!
