Anonabox FAWKES TOR Router Closer Look:

The Anonabox FAWKES is a very compact router, measuring in at 2.52 inches long, 1.79 inches wide, and 0.88 inches thick. The housing on the FAWKES uses a two-tone white case with a black back strip covering the ports. Powering the Anonabox FAWKES is an Atheros AR9331 MIPS 24K SoC running at 400MHz, paired with 64MB DDR2 RAM, and 16MB of flash memory. When it comes to connectivity, the FAWKES has two Gigabit Ethernet ports, one for the LAN and one for the WAN, and a built-in 802.11b/g/n wireless chip, which is rated up to 150Mbps using the 2.4GHz spectrum. The wireless chip supports AP, Range Extender, and Client access modes, along with WEP, WPA2-PSK, and Wireless MAC filtering security. For privacy, the FAWKES has a built-in TOR router that allows the configuration from a Graphical User Interface for quick setup, allowing true plug and play capability.

 

 

As mentioned above, there are two Ethernet ports on the Anonabox FAWKES that support 10/100/1000 Mbps speeds. One of the ports is designated the LAN port for you to connect your devices to and one is the WAN por,t which allows the user to connect to faster speeds directly to an Internet router. Next to the WAN Ethernet port there is a micro USB port for the power (five volts, one amp), allowing you to power this device with a portable power pack. This lets it be used with cellphones and tablets without having to find an external power source to plug into. I was able to use this with my Android phone and my iPad Air with no issues at all to maintain my privacy. I even used the FAWKES as a wireless router behind my Verizon 4G MiFi to keep my traffic on-the-go secure. Next to the LAN port there is a quick reset button should you need to reset the device. On the top side, there is a single configurable LED that you can have show boot up status and even flicker for network activity through the device. One thing to note is there is no USB Type A port on the FAWKES, such as we saw on the Pro.

 

 

 

Now that we have taken a look at the outside of the FAWKES, we can switch over and look at the software that powers it.
