RATtrap, the world's first subscription free smart firewall for home users.

IoT security, compare to Cujo and Dojo devices.

What is RATtrap?

How does RATtrap work?
RATtrap actively monitors traffic entering and leaving your home and makes real-time decisions. Through examination of traffic headers and metadata, RATtrap can easily identify malicious connections and block them in real time. All RATtrap devices continuously receive attack threat intelligence data from the RATtrap cloud so that you are always protected from the latest evolving threats.

What types of devices does RATtrap protect?
RATtrap protects all of your internet-connected devices, including mobile phones, tablets, baby monitors, media players, smart TVs, gaming consoles, smart thermostats and most importantly your home router.

Where is RATtrap made?
RATtrap is proudly made in the United States. RATtrap was designed in Virginia and built in Texas and Pennsylvania.

Use Edge Router and set up VLANS. Use DDWRT to ad block.

OP... have you tested your internet speed with and without the Rattrap? Was there a noticeable speed decrease?

Not that easy, but if you understand bit of network configuration and follow instructions you can set it up.

The speedtest did show a reduction in speed (I have up to 300 MBps service) to 200MBps, but in actual use, web browsing seems faster. There is a lot less content to search and load if you enable ad blocking. It's also rare that you max out your download speed under average use.

I'm not a network expert, so RatTrap is a compromise in that it is incredibly easy to set up. It plugs in between your modem and router, using the ethernet cable and a power cord. Literally takes 2 minutes to connect

Thats great that its easy to setup...and no subscription fees. I would like to have advanced configuration settings... is that possible with this or is it all "set it and forget it" ? I've been looking at IoT firewalls and it seems that this being a newer market, most are a few generations away from being really great.

Protection Level:
Speed Boost:
Pause the Internet:
Parental Controls

Enforce Google SafeSearch:
Enforce Bing SafeSearch:
Restrict Youtube Content:

I just did it, but you need EdgeRouter and managed switch. Basically, you assign ports to vlan on managed switch and add vlan dhcp router on edgerouter, in other words, you can create multiple network on switches.
