Manually setting up a VPN service on a router has always been notoriously complicated, frustrating and unnecessarily confusing…. until NOW!
Introducing the FlashRouters Router Privacy App - the simple browser-based solution to connect a VPN service on a router. Just a couple clicks and secure your entire home network.
Developed by the DD-WRT & VPN experts at FlashRouters, the FlashRouters Router Privacy App integrates support for most top VPN services.
The FlashRouters Privacy App works just like an app for Android, Windows or Apple iOS except it’s located on your router. And there is no separate app to install.
However, when you connect to VPN with the FR App, it is not just your computer that you are securing, instead you are securing every device in your home at once. Simply enter your VPN login information, search for your preferred VPN server location, and click Connect to get started.
In many cases you may not want your entire home network to tunnel through your router VPN connection, and so we have also built enhanced VPN management options in the FR Privacy App.
Choose to start the router VPN connection as soon as you connect to the Internet. Reboot your router at any time and automatically restart your VPN connection.
Click the VPN server dropdown list and type in the name or country for your preferred servers to quickly find your desired location.
Worried about IP Address and DNS leaking? Check The Global Kill Switch and the FlashRouter will block Internet access if the VPN connection is inactive. If you ever disconnect or lose connection to your VPN service, the Global Kill Switch will make sure that your ISP IP address does not leak. Checking the box will instantly activate Kill Switch on your FlashRouter.
Instead of setting up your VPN on one device at a time with different instructions for each device, you only need to setup VPN once.
Certain devices like streaming players, gaming systems, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices do not have native support for VPN client connections. These devices need security too, and with the FR Privacy App all devices that connect to your home network can now connect through your VPN service.
If your VPN provider limits the number of simultaneous connections to their service, you can use just 1 connection for a FlashRouter to cover ALL devices in your home with no device connection limit.
By device management in the FR App Options tab to easily enable or disable VPN on any network device with the click of a button.
Instead of listing all servers in alphabetical order, we can create additional sorts for By Country views where users can select the least loaded or server closest to them geographically. This helps VPN providers to properly distribute the bandwidth load in real time across servers. (*For Select Participating VPN Providers)

App user interface is optimized to be viewed via mobile without need for a separate mobile app install.

Easy-to-use toggle setting that tells the FR App to start up the VPN network connection as soon as the router connects to the Internet.

As always, thank you for the outstanding customer service. It is sincerely appreciated!
I love Jake. This is what I wanted and expected. I run a business too. You got it sorted and you deserve the credit. Awesome! Thank you. Perfection.
Overall I'm very happy with this purchase. I know my way around computers a little bit, but never was very good with networking and programming routers. I received my router the next day when I made my on-line order. It took me a whole 5 minutes to get the router up and running. It works well with my internet providers DSL router. I'm using IPvanish and I love how easy it is to change the IP address. The only negative thing about the router is the wireless connection, the range is okay but not the greatest. However the wireless speed is very fast.
The Asus RT-AC56U FlashRouter is a perfect device. Affordable, packed with awesome features and capabilities, and fantastic support to boot. I had some questions before putting this router into my setup, and the FlashRouters team was more than helpful in their answering. I definitely recommend using a FlashRouter.
This router is a networking wonder at an affordable price. Packing an 800 MHz processor, this router offers the speed and performance of a beastly router within a price range I can afford. FlashRouters has made my streaming life much much easier.
The Asus RT-AC56U is affordable and brilliant. For a router under $200, the add-ons of Wireless-AC, an 800 MHz processor, DD-WRT and VPN capabilities make for an offer that almost seems too good to be true, but it isn't. I have been pleasantly surprised with my FlashRouters experience. I recommend this process.
For a long time, I have had issues with suspicious activity on my WiFi network. I have tried various methods to protect my network, none of which provided me with the level of security I am looking for. Using a DD-WRT router with a VPN has been a very successful method for creating a safe and encrypted network. The router performs very well, and I am able to sleep much better at night knowing my data is protected.
FlashRouters provides fantastic routers with a very easy setup. I am not a fan of the Asus firmware that routers like the AC56U come out of the box with. Buying this router from FlashRouters, I am able to use the fantastic DD-WRT firmware to integrate my HideMyAss VPN account. In itself, this is a life saver, as I can finally use HMA on my Roku. The router itself is also an amazing device, with Dual Band Wireless-AC and a powerful processor!
Forget spending hours deciphering and testing the DD-WRT forums/website/Wiki for the correct hardware version and proper build only to discover that you've improperly flashed your device and bricked it.
FlashRouters offers what many router manufacturers won't: better firmware plus basic network and VPN service configuration assistance from responsive and highly trained USA tech support that will actually answer your questions.
