I break up with you dear F-Secure Sense router
During the summer of 2017, I got my new and shiny F-Secure Sense.
I have read alot about it, waited for over 6 months, asked on Twitter and waited.
The day finally came, I got the confirmation mail, and I was exited!!
I got the note from the Norwegian post office, it was ready for pickup.
- With a 50 euro bill... Due to norwegian taxes.. First bummer, but I paied
After using it for a while, I even made a shelf on the wall to have it on display, something strange happend to it, and I found this forum.
After reading, and posting, I was not alone with the bugs. I did reset, soft and facotory, waited for reply and tested more.
The joy of what I got was away, it was a annoying box, the clock was correct tho.
Loosing the connection with the phone, I was missing the techincal stuff from my old Linksys router:
- External access
- Edit from browser
- Copy past ports to NAS, Raspberry PI´s, ip cams etc
- Use more than one device to edit the config
- Reser ip adresses
- My own block list
As the days went on, I got more and more annoyed and I do live in a flat with 100 m2, not that big, but I did not even have 100% coverage, and I had to switch maually between 2,4 Ghz and 5 Ghz...
This have been my daily life for 6 months now, and this should be a joy to use.
It is not.
So, this blackfriday, I bought something else.
Sorry F-Secure, I did try, but when your homewifi is too poor to be used easy, and with the ongoing bugs, I hearby break up with you.
We had fun, you was not easy to work with and in the end, we had to go different ways.
I hope I can find a new family for you, right now you are offline....
