Maxwell shipped out to US backers in March, but unfortunately international orders have been delayed. Because the product uses encryption (WPA2, WPA3, etc.), the US government requires some extra paperwork to ship it internationally. We're working on that, and non-US orders should be approved to ship soon. Sorry for the wait! Read the full update.
Now that most of you have received your Maxwell systems, we hope it's going well for you all. We want to hear what you're doing with your Maxwell setup! To that end, we encourage you to submit a field report at https://www.crowdsupply.com/field-reports. Read the full update.
After a bit of a delay due to the weather in Texas, I've now been able to ship everything to the distribution site. It should get there on Monday and ship out to you shortly after that! Read the full update.
We are on schedule for delivery this month! In fact, all crowdfunded Maxwell routers are packed up, boxed, and ready to ship. Special thanks to my girlfriend who tirelessly helped bag and tag nearly 200 routers! We will soon be able to see our kitchen floor again. Read the full update.
Thanks to all of your support, Maxwell is now funded. But there are still a few days left for you to pick up your Maxwell nodes as part of our crowdfunding effort, so swing on by the campaign page and get yours! Read the full update.
Thanks to all of your support, Maxwell is almost funded! We just need a few more backers to join in. So, if you were thinking about going for it, now's the time! In this update, I'd like to tell you a bit about the *Outdoor Maxwell Node*. In my opinion, this is something that really sets Maxwell apart from other mesh systems. I'm not aware of ANY that offer an outdoor node. Read the full update.
I've been able to secure better-than-expected pricing for the hardware I use to make dual-band Maxwell nodes, and I've decided to pass those savings on to my backers. As a result, the Three-Pack of Dual-Band Maxwell Nodes is now $149 instead of $199, a single dual-band node is $69 instead of $79, and the "Mixed Three-Pack" is now $219 instead of $249. I've also added a Two-Pack of Dual-Band Maxwell Nodes for just $99! Read the full update.
Other mesh systems are a bit of a pain to set up. Usually there's some phone app involved that requires you to register with the company, give them your email address, etc. Then you follow some lengthy process of setting up each node, which typically includes lots of spinning lights and waiting, while you cross your fingers and pray that the node eventually connects like it's supposed to. The mesh-setup process for Maxwell, on the other hand, is quite simple. This update breaks it down for you. Read the full update.
Thanks to your initial support, Maxwell is nearly 20% funded in just the first few days - looking good! Keep it coming, please! In this week's update, I will take a look at one of the features that really sets Maxwell apart in the world of mesh wifi: monitoring. Read the full update.
I'm very excited to be launching Maxwell today! I've struggled with Wi-Fi for years. It has let me down in so many different ways: random crashes, outages, poor signal strength, disappointing speeds, buggy phone apps, and companies dropping support for their products or going out of business, to name just a few examples. I want to be in charge of my own Wi-Fi! I also want a mesh system that is powerful, stable, secure, flexible, and easy to install, use, and monitor. I believe Maxwell is all the above, and I'm excited for you all to try it out! Read the full update.
