I believe this is actually the same hardware as the Protectli. I purchased it from Amazon in June 2018. It came pre-loaded with pfSense. Manufacturer product page.


  1. Write the official ISO to a USB drive of some sort.
  2. Plug in VGA, power, USB keyboard, and USB drive.
  3. Press the "SW" button on the front (this is the power button; I don't know what "SW" is supposed to mean).
  4. Begin rapidly pressing Delete on the keyboard. The boot prompt is very quick, but with a few tries you should be able to get into the BIOS.
  5. Chipset > South Bridge > USB Configuration: set XHCI to Disabled and USB 2.0 (EHCI) to Enabled. Without doing this, the USB drive won't boot.
  6. Boot to the VyOS installer and install as usual.
  7. Warning the interface labels on my device are backwards; the left-most "LAN4" port is eth0 and the right-most "LAN1" port is eth3.
