The holidays are fast approaching, and more and more people are searching for unique tech gifts for their family and friends. You may want to consider a DD-WRT router. It will complement the bevy of high tech gadgets they already have, such as iPads, Laptops, Rokus, or AppleTVs, by making them all run more smoothly. A DD-WRT router will also allow your loved ones to integrate their various devices with VPN service so that they can access their favorite video content like Netflix, Hulu, BBC, ESPN, no matter where they are in the world.
FlashRouters is here to help you pick out the perfect tech gift that sits at the top of so many people’s wish lists: VPN Service and high speed wireless routers to manage all those great devices.
Learn About DD-WRT Firmware Features
At FlashRouters, just about all of our routers include upgraded router firmware to improve performance and router options. DD-WRT firmware offers a variety of features that really set it apart from a regular router with standard firmware:
- These DD-WRT upgraded features include integrated OpenVPN, PPTP, & L2TP options.
- DD-WRT allows upgraded routers to double as a Wireless Repeater/Extender to an Access Point to Client Bridge.
- DD-WRT also gives an administrator the Quality of Service bandwidth control so as to restrict network users, such as family members, from overtaxing Internet. Tired of your son’s Youtube and Xbox obsessions taking over your network? Limit his usage with bandwidth controls or even set on/off times on the Internet inside of your router.
- The Wake on LAN can be incredibly useful in that you can turn on your home computer remotely.
- Even more, you can opt for a 3G USB WAN Failover to back up your network via Cellular service in case your main Internet service goes out. Anyone who gets a DD-WRT upgraded router can access and protect their information at all times.
And these benefits are just the tip of the iceberg! For a complete list of DD-WRT advantages, check out our DD-WRT Intro & Benefits or go ahead and pick your favorite router from the list below and order it today!

Using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) allows you to protect, hide and mask your IP address and location from websites and advertisers. Stop having limitations on what you can do with the Internet based on where you are.
Have a privacy worrier in your life? Get them a VPN subscription to help alleviate their concerns of snooping so that they can feel safe while browsing the Internet. What could be more comforting this holiday season then online identity protection?!
VPN Service Providers offer a large pool of shared IP addresses to prevent you from being followed/targeted while browsing the web. VPN is an easy way to protect your privacy at a time when it is constantly under assault.
A popular use of a VPN FlashRouter is to integrate a Roku or other streaming video device into your VPN network, not just one computer. Integrate your VPN connection with any wired or wireless device (Roku, iPad, Laptop) to the FlashRouter with VPN and it will be covered by the VPN simultaneously.
