Learn About DD-WRT Firmware Features
At FlashRouters, just about all of our routers include upgraded router firmware to improve performance and router options. Upgraded DD-WRT firmware offers a variety of features that really set it apart from standard router firmware including:
- VPN passthrough capabilities which allows you to utilize your VPN subscription with ease. These DD-WRT upgraded features include integrated OpenVPN, PPTP, & L2TP options.
- Adjustable antenna power to increase your wireless spectrum.
- Integrated HotSpot & NoCATSplash options for setting up a WiFi hotspot.
- Quality of Service bandwidth control: 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.
- Wireless Repeater/Extender, Access Point & Client Bridge modes included.
- Built-in DNS (Domain Name System) caching – speeds up your connection to an array of sites.
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!

Overplay VPN has once-again topped the most popular VPN Service charts. Users love their simple DD-WRT integration, consistent speeds & service, plus the 60+ countries with high-speed OpenVPN, PPTP, & L2TP VPN servers can’t hurt.
