Asus RT-N66U Tomato Now Available for IPVanish Users

Big News for IPVanish Users

Great news for fans of the popular VPN provider IPVanish and Tomato firmware:  FlashRouters is proud to announce that we have added official support for OpenVPN Tomato routers specifically designed for users of IPVanish!

This means that IPVanish users can now learn the many joys of owning a router flashed with Tomato firmware, a replacement firmware designed to supercharge already powerful routers, making them faster, tougher, and more effective.

Read more to find out more about Tomato firmware, IPVanish, and the ways in which this new development could change your whole network for the better.

First of All, What’s Tomato Firmware?

Tomato Router Firmware

The benefits of Tomato firmware were fairly extensively covered in a recent post, but under the circumstances, it’s worth recapping: Tomato is an open-sourced, Linux-based replacement firmware that overhauls the stock firmware in select wireless routers and gives the device a major feature upgrade.

Put simply, Tomato means a major increase in your wireless router’s functionality. With a Tomato router, you now have increased control of how you want to manage your bandwidth, the length of your router’s wireless range, your ability to create a WiFi hotspot…the list goes on and on. Here’s a few more benefits, for those still not convinced:

  • Known bug fixes in Broadcom-based Linksys & Asus firmware.
  • A user-friendly router Ajax-based GUI (Graphical User Interface).
  • Improved Network Stability & Network Status Information.
  • Advanced Wireless modes: Access Point (AP), wireless client station (STA), wireless Ethernet (WET) bridge, wireless distribution system (WDS aka wireless bridging), simultaneous AP and WDS (aka wireless repeating)
  • Informative Bandwidth graphing/statistics: real-time, daily, monthly.
  • A user-friendly router Ajax-based GUI (Graphical User Interface).
  • Adjustable Antenna Transmission Settings for more powerful WiFi strength.
  • OpenVPN & PPTP VPN client connection integration.

Some of these features are likely to be a bit technical for those familiar with router terminology, but each of them helps ensure a WiFi experience with no equal.

In fact, that last feature (“OpenVPN & PPTP VPN client connection integration”) will prove particularly important for IPVanish users wanting a router that will suit their VPN needs. OpenVPN capability allows a VPN user to establish a VPN connection on their router without having to go to the trouble of installing the VPN software, a process that is incredibly difficult and time-consuming. Don’t end up bricking your router when you can buy a device with pre-installed VPN connectivity. Let us handle the tricky business.
