Gryphon AX Router: Wi-Fi 6 with Parental Controls

I have been a happy owner of the Grhypon Tower parental control router for many years. But recently my home office moved upstairs to the opposite corner of our house from the router and wi-fi has been unreliable. So I decided to upgrade to the newest Gryphon router, the Grphyon AX, featuring Wi-Fi 6 and other new and improved features.

One of the primary reasons to choose the Gryphon AX router over other brands is the native parental control filtering. In addition this and the performance upgrade, an unexpected feature I like is that the physical dimensions are smaller than the old Tower so it fits on my shelf better.

Since this was our 2nd Gryphon router I was familiar with how easy the setup can be. However, I experienced a slight challenge restoring my old device’s backup to new AX router. Reaching out to their tech support helped sort things out.
