GL.iNet GL-B3000 “Marble” WiFi 6 router ships with a photo frame

GL.iNet GL-B3000 “Marble” is a typical WiFi 6 AX6000 router that ships with a photo frame acting as a stand for the router and makes it look like an office or home decoration item rather than another bland white box on the desk.

The Marble router is powered by a Qualcomm IPQ5018 dual-core Cortex-A53 networking SoC coupled with 512MB RAM and 128MB NAND flash. Like other GL.iNet routers, it runs an OpenWrt fork with GL.iNet Admin Panel, OpenVPN and Wireguard VPN client/server support, Adguard Home, parental control, and other features.

GL.iNet GL-B3000 Marble routerThe router supports four “mounting” options: attached behind the photo frame, placed on a desk or table, mounted on a wall, and mounted vertically through the provided stand. Note the photo frame is not a digital photo frame, but a traditional photo frame taking an 8-inch printed-out photo. You’ll find all the accessories that ship with the router in the photo below.

The photo frame is shown as optional, but I understand it’s included in the package, and it’s just up to the user to use it or not.

Adding a digital photo frame might be an interesting project, and some people may even consider making their own digital photo frame stand for their current router, especially since the Marble lacks features such as 2.5GbE networking and a USB port.

The GL.iNet Marble (GL-B3000) Wi-Fi 6 router is available for pre-order for $56 on the company’s online store. Further details may also be found on the product page.

If it could launch a browser and display a HomeAssistant UI, it would be a killer device

It seems to have a traditional photo frame rather than a digital one (refer to timestamp 0:44 in the video).
