The Free Software Foundation has certified ThinkPenguin's latest mini-router as a device that "respects your freedom" per their standards.

This certification means "the product meets the FSF's standards in regard to users' freedom, control over the product, and privacy." This router being certified today is the TPE-R1100 and is the second router from ThinkPenguin to receive such certification.

The Think Penguin TPE-R1100 runs the FSF-endorsed LibreCMC GNU/Linux distribution designed for embedded use-cases. This Wireless-N Mini-Router isn't designed to serve as one's main router but rather for allowing multiple devices on a network to tunnel traffic through a VPN universally. There is a single WAN and LAN ports on the device along with a USB port.

More details on this mini-router being endorsed by the Free Software Foundation can be found at FSF.org. The mini-router is for sale at ThinkPenguin.com and pricing starts out at $40 USD with a 90-day warranty.
