We want to enable anyone, anyone with IPv6. It should be as simple as "plug and play". We are very proud to announce that with the VPN IPv6 IoT Router Box (VIIRB), we can now offer exactly this.
The VIIRB is pre-configured with a Wireguard VPN. With this VPN you will receive a /48 IPv6 prefix. The IPv6 connectivity is provided by Data Center Light.
When you plug in the ethernet cable and power it on, it will do the following:
By default the firewall is configured to allow outgoing connections from LAN towards the VPN. Incoming ICMP6, SSH, HTTP and HTTPS are open by default.
The VIIRB is running stock OpenWRT. We flash the latest available version before shipping. SSH and http access to the OpenWRT management is open. The password is randomly generated and will be sent to you with the shipping confirmation.
So what can you do with the VIIRB?
Going to a friend and the network does not have IPv6? Just bring your VIIRB, plug it in and enjoy a fully enabled IPv6 network.
You can install the music player daemon on the VIIRB and allow remote control of the music from anywhere in the world. You can either put your music locally on an SDXC card or you can even mount your music collection or stream music to it.
Just connect the VIIRB to your audio system, configure it and enjoy remotely controlled music!
In fact, if you let us know before ordering, we can even connect your VIIRB to a VPN endpoint that allows peering with the real Internet.
Thi VIIRB contains a variety of additional features like PWM, GPIO, A/D converter, D/A converter and so on. It can also plug in a small camera, so you can turn it into an IPv6 enabled camera. The VIIRB is so universal, easy and hackable that it's just fun to use it.
Remote controlling your lights, your blinds, your doorbell - all remotely via IPv6? You can do it with the VIIRB!
We measured throughput on a LAN, IPv6 based with iperf:

In our long term tests the WiFi of the VIIRB shows reliability issues with clients that are not directly next to it.
As the majority of VIIRB users we are in touch with did not use the WiFi and our preference is on delivering stable systems, we have turned the WiFi off by default. Effective since 2020-12-01.
If you are looking for an IPv6 enabler with reliable WiFi, we recommend to use the VIWIB instead.
When you order the VIIRB, you will receive one pre-configured system. The box does not contain the micro usb cable or a charger, because we think that most people already have this and we don't want to contribute to tech waste.
A free subscription for 1 year is included. This way you can plug in the VIIRB and just get started with IPv6.
The VIIRB comes with a variety of possible add-ons that can turn it into an even more versatile device.
You can turn the VIIRB into an IPv6 streaming camera with a compatible USB-Webcam. For 25 CHF you can add a tested, Full HD (1920x1080) USB camera to your VIIRB order.
If you want to know how hot (or cold) it is, you can use an USB temperature sensor to measure the temperature. For 20 CHF you can add a tested temperature sensor to your VIIRB order.
Using an USB 4G Modem you can use the VIIRB to enable a network not only with IPv6, but also with Internet connectivity in general.
For 75 CHF you can add a 4G modem to your VIIRB order.
The VIIRB is small and universal. What if you could use it to track things? Like your car, your bike, your boat? And check where your things are using IPv6?
You can add the USB GPS tracker add on for 25 CHF as a single device.
To connect more than one add-on to the VIIRB, you will need a USB-Hub. For 25 CHF you can add a verified, 4 Port USB hub to your VIIRB order.
The VIIRB can be turned into an autonomous security system with the following add-ons:
The autonomous security system set can be added to your VIIRB order for 150 CHF (223 CHF including the VIIRB).
