Today’s home networks are more complex than ever before. The exponential increase in devices that can be interconnected is never-ending. Laptops, chromebooks, tablets, smartphones, your friends’ devices joining the Wi-Fi…it doesn’t stop there. Now with home automation and the internet of things (IoT), home security systems, appliances, pools & spas, HVAC, music & podcasts, and TV and gaming are all connected to the internet.
The biggest challenge facing home networks isn’t necessarily even security, though that is an issue that continues to grab headlines. It’s the lack of visibility into and control over what’s happening on your network. This is where Untangle can help. Unlike today’s home Wi-Fi routers, Untangle NG Firewall logs traffic for rich, robust reporting into every facet of what’s happening online: sites your kids are visiting, neighbors jumping on your wireless network, and your newest IP-enabled gadget phoning home. NG Firewall allows you to create rules for managing access to websites, applications, and content based on criteria like device, user, time of day, day of week and more. You can see the effect of those rules through drill-down reports that can be monitored via the 360° Dashboard, a single pane of glass view into what’s happening on your network.
You may already be running Untangle at your business, school or organization. NG Firewall protects by over 40,000 customers worldwide and protects millions of users and their devices all. For years, people have asked us for the ability to run NG Firewall at home. Now you can, at a reasonable price. For only $50 a year, you can run the HomePro package on your own hardware, in a virtualized environment or on a u25 appliance. At less than five inches square, the u25 and u25w are the smallest firewall appliances on the market today. The HomePro package includes all NG Firewall applications, free and paid, except for Branding Manager, Live Support and Virus Blocker, which can be purchased separately. With HomePro, you still receive the benefit of Virus Blocker Lite.
*HomePro license available for residential, non-commercial use only.
There is no doubt in my mind that your software is miles ahead of the software on any consumer wireless router I have used.

Between Web Filter and Application Control this gives me such fine control of what happens within the home environment.
Jeremy Patrick, NG Firewall HomePro Subscriber
All-in-all I am very thankful that Untangle has offered this product to the home user… It is one more way to try to protect my family and children from various internet threats and provide education on their activities.

You have a couple of options:
To run Untangle inline with your current Wi-Fi router, you need to install Untangle on your own server with 2 NICs or purchase a ready-to-go appliance like the u25 or u50. You’ll be deploying NG Firewall in bridge mode between your Wi-Fi router and modem.
To run Untangle as your Wi-Fi router, you’ll need to purchase a u25w, a Linksys WRT1900ACS, or a Turris Omnia router. The u25w is available pre-imaged with NG Firewall, so you’ll be ready to plug-and-play. The Linksys WRT1900ACS can be purchased pre-imaged through our partner, FlashRouters, or you can build your own router by following the instructions for flashing. The Turris Omnia router is available for purchase in Europe.
Whatever option you choose, you’ll want to be sure to get a license subscription for HomePro. That way, you’ll have access to all the great features it provides. Learn more about NG Firewall Firmware Distribution.
