Never brick your router again. With this SOIC-clip, jumper wires, and the appropriate hardware you can flash an otherwise bricked router. Perfect for anybody looking to develop for LibreCMC.

Get inexpensive hassle-free repair, replacement, and support for your device. Whether it's been damaged or you just can't figure out why it's not working we'll be here to help. Purchase up to 3 years of total support and protection.

In order to connect to a wireless network in GNU/Linux, you need a compatible wifi adapter. Many adapters aren't well supported- or supported at all. If you have an adapter that lacks native support, you may want to pick one up one of our adapters.

Get the latest release of LibreCMC and help support the projects development. Select this option and we'll flash the latest release of LibreCMC before the router ships. Otherwise we'll ship with whichever release was available at the time of assembly.

In order to provide great support for our customers around the world we need to know which power adapter you need. Different regions utilize different power standards and plugs. Select the power adapter appropriate for your region or contact support.
