The turris omnia is a fine home router, but is not a DSL modem - you still
need your upstream connection to the Internet. What the turris gives you is
complete control over the router and much more - basically you can do whatever you
want with the OpenWrt operating system.
This router is therefore mostly intended for users who are interested in the
internals of such a machine, but it of course will work fine even if you're
not (currently:-) interested in that kind of thing.
Open hardware running free operating system OpenWrt
High power dual-core ARM CPU at 1.6 GHz with PC-like performance
Secure default configuration, easy setup and automatic updates
Automatic updates Lack of updates is a security problem for most home routers. The turris omnia offers unattended automatic updates to core components of the system.
Freedom The turris omnia uses OpenWrt. This means that you have an open Linux distribution in your device and can do anything you would with a normal Linux server.
Network Attached Storage Every router with a USB port may be used as a Network Attached Storage (NAS). Unfortunately, many routers are not powerful enough to handle high throughput from a USB connected disk.
Virtual server You can configure the turris omnia to host a virtual server, which you can use for your software without risk to the main system.
1 to 2 GB RAM The turris omnia has much more RAM than common SOHO routers. This allows you to use it for much more.
SFP connector If you have fiber to the home, we can connect you without a middlebox.
Backup connectivity Do you work from home and Internet connection is crucial for you all the time? By attaching an LTE (4G) USB adapter loaded with a data SIM, you can set up a fallback Internet connection.”
