Looking for the best wireless routers of 2015 to meet every need and budget? Have you heard a lot about popular firmware enhancements like DD-WRT and wondering what benefits from this powerful and simple upgrade anyone can have? Tired of buffering or having to reset your router a few times a day just to get it to work? Or maybe you are in the market for the best dual band router or upgrading to Wireless-AC for your current network setup? Look no further, you have found an expert list of the best wireless routers available in 2015.

Wireless router technology seems to be leaping at a breakneck pace so we have decided it was time for an update to our yearly list of the Best Wireless Routers of 2015, a yearly tradition as you can see from last year’s Fastest & Best Performing DD-WRT Wireless Routers. Our list of the best wireless routers of 2015 mixes our top tested devices based on in the field experience, months of testing, and their interaction with premium alternative firmwares and various streaming players like Roku, AppleTV as well as the top gaming consoles like Xbox One & Playstation 4.

What is DD-WRT Firmware?

DD-WRT is an open-source router firmware upgrade project created for maximizing router features and usage potential. DD-WRT is used by many networking-savvy users to enhance your wireless router stability, privacy, & (most importantly) network security while making previously unavailable networking functions the norm. Basically, DD-WRT unlocks expensive features usually limited to high-end business routers and runs them right on popular consumer models. But to get these advanced features, you need to to have a DD-WRT installed router.

DD-WRT is extremely reactive to bugs like the Heartbleed and future online terrors. The DD-WRT site itself is a very helpful resource for anyone with an interest in getting the most out of your router, setting up features like a static IP address or allocating bandwidth management. Being open-source, these firmwares are community vetted by users looking to maximize their router’s functionality and security.

DD-WRT has an additional slew of VPN & non-VPN related features to meet wide and niche needs of every user. For a more complete list of DD-WRT features, we recommend you review our full Intro to DD-WRT FAQ.

Feature Upgrades of DD-WRT Firmware

  • Advanced Wireless Modes: Access Point (AP), wireless client birdge & repeater modes.
  • DHCP Server – Using DNSmasq with dynamic and static DHCP leases
  • Wi-Fi hotspot Integrations: For business or neighbors with a verification page using the integrated Chillispot or NOCATSPLASH
  • Adjustable Antenna Transmission Settings – To increase WiFi strength
  • Wake-on-LAN – Remote network access
  • Advanced Port Forwarding – Create port forwards, redirects, & triggers with included UPnP (Universal Plug and Play)
  • NAT (Network Address Translation) support
  • JFFS2 Support
  • Samba file-share/CIFS client
  • WDS: Wireless distribution system (WDS aka wireless bridging)

Why Choose a DD-WRT FlashRouter?

DD-WRT Preinstalled

FlashRouters takes high-powered consumer grade hardware with stock firmware and, by adding improved firmware, turn a $50-$400 wireless router into something worth double or triple its value. Don’t stand for the vanilla, boring, under-performing, easily hackable wireless routers you buy directly at a Best Buy or on Amazon (something every manufacturer from Netgear to Asus to Linksys to D-link has dealt with in the past year). Router manufacturers have little incentive to add business level, advanced features to consumer grade routers as they often price this type of functionality at upwards of $1000.

Flashing a router with DD-WRT can be a frustrating task for some, involving a lot of research, trial and error and a complex process that can easily lead to making a router unusable. If one tries to do this on their own, it is very possible that they can lead to a dead router or a “brick” that would completely void his or her warranty. That is where FlashRouters comes in.

Router Hacking News Roundup

FlashRouters collects the latest router hacking news.

Router Hacking News Roundup

One of our primary goals at FlashRouters is to provide our customers with the most secure wireless devices that money can buy. In an age where invasive governments and cybercriminals are only becoming more and more bold, we consider it a sacred duty.

And we’re going to keep on keeping on with that aforementioned goal as a guiding principle, especially considering that there seems to be disturbing news about router hacking every other week. In fact, we’ve collected some of the most recent stories, just to give you an idea of the sort of vulnerabilities exist out there.

But before we get to that, we insist on reminding you that with the right FlashRouter and the right VPN service provider on your side, you can avoid losing sleep about the security of your banking information, e-mails, and other sensitive online data. In fact, we have a whole best-sellers list full of terrific choices for the more conscientious online denizen.

Anyway, onto the news…

Router Hacking News

Router DNS Attack Brings Pornography and Game Ads to Popular Websites – Let’s start by looking at a router attack that is particularly mischievous. Hackers have figured out a way to confuse routers into sending incorrect DNS results. Many websites use Google Analytics, and this hack basically bypasses Google Analytics and sends faulty code instead, the result of which is pornography and game ads popping up on your screen that seem to originate from popular websites, but are instead coming from a hacked router.

Routers Provided By ISPs Vulnerable to HacksDon’t assume a router provided by your Internet Service Provider is necessarily safe; in fact, more than 700,000 of the ADSL routers ISPs provide are not. A “directory traversal” flaw in a firmware component called webproc.cgi that exists in these routers has a major vulnerability that allows would-be hackers to find your administrative credentials. Suffice to say, at that point, the router and your network are no longer within your control.

Common Hotel Routers Supremely Hackable – We’re going to get deeper into this one in an upcoming post, but the invaluable security firm Cylance has discovered a flaw in routers used by 8 of the 10 biggest hotel chains in the world. In addition to allowing attackers to download malware to your devices, this flaw gives potential attackers access to your data transmissions, and even the hotel’s keycard and reservation system. Sadly, security experts are pretty certain that most hotels will do little to correct this issue.

12 Million Home and Business Routers Vulnerable to Critical Hijacking HackWhile we’re on the subject of routers that are both common and problematic, here’s a bug, humorously dubbed “Misfortune Cookie”, that has shown up in devices from companies like Linksys, D-Link, Edimax, Huawei, TP-Link, ZTE, and ZyXEL. The issue is in the “RomPager” software, and apparently could allow hackers to gain administrative control and mess with the devices memory.

Feds Warn Airlines to Watch Out for Passengers Hacking Jets – And for our final story in this section, we figured we ought to go ahead and scare the daylights out of you. Terrifyingly, the FBI and the TSA have issued a warning to airlines, asking them to be on the lookout for anyone who might be trying to hack an airplane’s wireless network, and thus commandeer, say, the plane’s navigation system. Reassuringly, the FBI and the TSA claim that these threats are merely theoretical, and as of yet, they have no information that suggests a hacker could actually pull this off.

And Now (Because You’ve Earned It) the Lighter Side of Router News

The Star Trek USS Entepreise WiFi Router

Some Guys Decked Out Their Router Like The USS Enterprise (And You Can Too) – A couple of enterprising (forgive us) fellas have figured out a fairly basic way to have their router integrated into a model of Star Trek‘s USS Enterprise. It looks pretty damn cool and not all that hard to arrange for yourself. There. Doesn’t that feel a little better after all of the danger and terror documented in the stories above?

Today, we’re going to focus on a couple of the earlier incarnations of the Xbox, and tell you just how you can get the most out of your console with the best routers for Xbox and Xbox 360.

How a Router Can Affect the Xbox One/Xbox 360 Experience

Top Routers for Gaming

Best Routers for Xbox & Xbox 360

As you’re no doubt aware, Xbox 360 is a generation back from the modern console wars, and the original Xbox goes even further back. Nonetheless, some of the major features of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are still available on the Xbox and Xbox 360.

Online gaming and streaming movies & television are notorious bandwidth-hogs, both of which are primary features on the Xbox One and Xbox 360, as well as the original Xbox. So while these devices may not have a sensor attuned to the user’s heartbeat or any of the other eerily dystopian features of the Xbox One, they can still garner much of your network’s attention. And if you want to avoid annoying skips, stalls, and freezes in the middle of an important moment of Titanfall, then you’ll want a router performance and speed that delivers 24/7.

For the more advanced and frustrated users out there, DD-WRT also has integrated VPN connectivity for region restricted gaming, UPnP (Universal Plug and Play), advanced NAT controls, and many more available tweaks & router troubleshooting tips for Xbox.

With an upgraded firmware router for your home, you can extend your wireless range, access advanced security options, and even control how your router bandwidth is allocated. Believe us, if you’re going to be gaming and streaming, being able to prioritize those activities in your network is an invaluable resource.
