Popular WNDR4000 DD-WRT Setup Options
Using DD-WRT can make your network infinitely more stable and easier to tweak. FlashRouters creates a complete out-of-the-box, plug and play DD-WRT upgraded router solution that includes all the most popular DD-WRT features:
- VPN Router: Upgrading to a DD-WRT WNDR4000 allows for built-in VPN connections with OpenVPN and PPTP, creating a secure tunnel for any device just by connecting to the router. When you use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection, you get an additional layer of Internet security and encryption that allows you to mask your location or to access regionally restricted video and streaming content. Read more about what VPN can do under the VPN Service tab.
- Dual Router Setup: In the dual router setup, one router is connected to your local Internet Service Provider and the WNDR4000 can be used as a dedicated VPN router. Learn more about the FlashRouters Dual Router Setup.
- Wireless Extender/Bridge Options: Depending on your build and chip type, you can set up a variety of wireless extender options with a DD-WRT router. This will allow you to extend the current reach of the router, improving wireless range in homes and offices. You can also use DD-WRT to create a wireless bridge. With a wireless bridge, you can establish a wired connection without running actual cables and you can create wired ports for a 3G/4G MiFi device. Get a more extensive breakdown in our post on Wireless Repeaters and Bridges. Please look under the Support Plan tab for additional tech support information if you plan to use one of these setups.

Safety Makin', Fast Streamin', Performance Enhancin' Savior Review by Ted N.
Quality Value Support
I can assure you I will never be using default Netgear firmware again. In all honesty, I feel like I was duped by Netgear into using their lackluster interface for years. Limited capability, limited security, nothing! Then FlashRouters comes along like a stranger in the night leading me to some kind of parallel world where I can have a router that's a safety makin', fast streamin', performance enhancin' savior! Why would you use anything else?! Do yourself a favor and upgrade from that tricycle your riding to the full-on Harley Davidson monster that is a FlashRouter!!! (Posted on 2/5/15)

Innovative Review by Bob L.
Quality Value Support
Flashing this router with DD-WRT has provided for innovation in security and performance. The WNDR4000 is a world ahead from my old Wireless-G router, in terms of speed, the amazing dual band, and super-fast wireless. Compared to other routers, this is a bit of an investment, but I must say it was worth it. (Posted on 8/5/14)
An Absolutely Wonderful Device Review by Steven M.
Quality Value Support
The security that this absolutely wonderful device provides me with is very reassuring in this current, very frightening landscape. For a while, it seemed to be an impossibility to use my home computer without the intrusion of outside agents, peering on me with snooping eyes. Using a VPN with this router has seemed to sweep all of that away, and made me feel much, much more secure. FlashRouters has provided me with a much needed sense of safety. (Posted on 7/15/14)
