What Does DD-WRT Firmware Add to the Asus RT-AC88U?

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.

Asus RT-AC88U AC3100 Specifications

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.

    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.

    Quality

    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 ;)
