Here comes the true router for hardcore gamers looking for max performance. A router with 8 external wired ports for those looking to maximize wired connectivity using a top of the line 1.4 GHz processor, the Asus RT-AC88U AC3100 DD-WRT (or RT-AC88R), offers the best specs all around of a DD-WRT WiFi Router.
The latest of our Asus Wireless-AC DD-WRT routers revamps your networking options, controls, and capabilities for any gadget while still offering full support for legacy devices (Wireless-N & Wireless-G).
Recommended For: Gamers and users looking to stream 4K video.
The Asus RT-AC88U FlashRouter is the premiere choice for users who want top-notch, high-definition video streaming quality for your favorite services: Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, BBC iPlayer, WatchESPN, and Hulu, among others. Tired of buffering? Choose the premium router hardware that features a hand-crafted firmware upgrade with the stability, improved security, and full customizability of the open source DD-WRT Linux kernel!
Full OpenVPN & PPTP Integration
Using DD-WRT firmware can make a wireless or wired network infinitely more stable and easier to tweak.
We upgrade the RT-AC88U to DDWRT, thereby integrating advanced network security options including VPN connectivity. Using VPN allows you to create a secure tunnel for connected devices just by connecting to the router; giving you an additional layer of encryption & personal privacy from prying government eyes, and allowing you to mask your location for additional security.
Broadcom 1.4 GHz (1400 MHz) Dual Core Processor
The RT-AC88U model bumps the internal processor to a DD-WRT-leading 1.4 GHz (1400 MHz) Broadcom CPU. This is the one of the best dual core routers we offer with DD-WRT support.
Processing is the key to high performance routing, and this one has room to burn and grow as streaming video demands become increasingly more intensive. For VPN users, having a large processor is imperative to streamline the constant encryption and decryption the router will need perform in the process. The better the processor, the faster the VPN-encrypted information can get to you.
8 Gigabit Wired Ports
The Asus RT-AC88U FlashRouter is the only DD-WRT router we support that integrates 8 ethernet ports to connect 8 high powered devices straight to their networking source.
4 Powerful External Antennas
The Asus RT-AC88U integrates 4 four high-powered external antennas (a first for Asus Wireless-AC routers) for maximum wireless reach and performance. Since they are external, they are easily upgradable to even more powerful antennas for extended reach if you so desire.

Great stuff! This router is super good. Flash routers guys are nice dudes who will help you out. great stuff.
The range on this router is great. Able to put a lot of devices on it too, which is cool. I am an avid gamer. This is the perfect router for me.
I love FlashRouters. Tom M. from support was very helpful. The Sales Team answered all of my questions (and I had a lot). I recommend this company- these guys actually care about fixing your problems.
I've been in the IT business for about 30 years. I know how difficult it can be, dealing with customers, endless headaches, glitches, bricking, the whole shebang.
What I admire about FlashRouters is their ability to work with customers, to learn about the desired network goals, and then help to accomplish them.
The sales team spoke to me on the phone for a half an hour. I can be a bit insufferable with my need for certainty before I purchase a product, but they did their best to pretend I wasn't a total nuisance ;)
FlashRouters offers an amazing service. The team is patient and the products are top notch! I cannot recommend them more
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.
