What Our Customer Say

Was a giant pain to get working correctly


After a huge hassle to get this set up, I finally did and it is working well. For the moment, I only wanted it for AdGuard Home, as I am not sure what the other settings would do to my work laptop and the company VPN. For now as just an AdGuard Home box it is working well though.

Looking to secure your Ethernet connection?


I use the Brume 2 to secure my Ethernet connection and increase my privacy by utilizing a built-in WireGuard VPN client. The security gateway encrypts my traffic from many different devices and tunnels it to my VPN provider. Recommended!

Great all-in-one for ad blocking and VPN server


This greatly simplifies my setup and requires less maintenance. AdGuard works just as well as Pi-hole, and having a GUI interface for Wireguard administration is a plus.

It's been working flawlessly since I installed it a few weeks ago.

Enterprise features in a tiny package


Overall this is a very feature rich and powerful little router with super advanced networking features yet is very easy to setup and use for all the normal functionality. Since I was able to test out both the GL-MT2500A and GL-MT2500 I can confirm they are functionally identical and that the price difference between the two is simply because of the plastic vs aluminum housing.

Feature packed and flexible addition to your home network!


Either way, this is a great little security and networking tool with great versatility and any number of use cases. The reasonable price is also a big plus and I can certainly recommend picking one of these up if you like to fiddle with your network settings and whatnot. And keep up the good work GL.iNET!

Great Appliance to Keep Your Home Network Secure


And this gateway is the perfect tool, alongside the implementation of OpenDNS, to assist in that process. Multiple great features make this appliance the perfect at-home protection device.

Works great with surfshark and PiVPN

G. Adkins

It works very well with the ovpn and wireguard servers I tested it with.

Highly recommended.

Tiny and powerful, plenty of room for adding features!


Honestly this thing is pretty amazing once you start looking at the possible added plugins. Outside of just the built in features of Adguard and VPN Server/client, you have a large list of possible plugins to use more features.
