Get used to it, friends. Summer is just about over.
We can’t offer much regarding that last point, but we can definitely ensure that all of our cord-cutting customers can still stream their favorite sports with a complete lack of annoying freezes and stalls. So if you want to make sure your wireless network is in proper order for the fall season, take a look at some of our most popular wireless routers and VPN service provider set-ups.
The FlashRouters Difference
If you’re new to this site, then you could be forgiven for wondering what exactly a FlashRouter is. Well, we’re glad you asked…
At FlashRouters, our mission is to provide safe, dependably, and high-performance wireless routers. In order to ensure that our customers are getting the best of the best, we flash every router with DD-WRT or Tomato firmware, replacement firmwares that super-charge already powerful devices. DD-WRT and Tomato are guaranteed to expand the capabilities of your router in ways you’ve never even dreamed. Some of the many, many benefits include:
- Adjustable antenna capabilities which allow you to boost the strength of your wireless signal.
- Advanced Networking Modes for WDS, Repeaters & Client Bridges.
- Advanced QoS (Quality of Service) which lets you take over the process of allocating your bandwidth for VOIP, streaming service & popular websites.
- Captive WiFi Hotspot Portals.
- Built-in OpenVPN, PPTP, & L2TP Settings which allows you to utilize your VPN subscription with multiple devices as well as popular streaming players like Rokus while saving you the trouble of installing the VPN connection on each single device!
And again, that’s a partial list. Buying a FlashRouter means that you get all of these benefits without trying to install these replacement firmwares on your own (believe us, you don’t want to attempt this process. That’s how wireless routers get bricked).
Most Popular DD-WRT & Tomato Routers of August 2013
So now that you know what a FlashRouter can do for you, we bet you’re wondering which wireless router can provide the most bang for your buck. Well, in this case, let’s defer to our customers’ judgment and show you some of their favorites.
Once again, the Cisco Linksys E4200 DD-WRT topped our best-sellers list. Perhaps our customers are worried that they need to get their hands on this exceptional router before Linksys gets out of the open-sourced game. Even the Tomato version of the E4200 jumped up into the top five.
Just as unsurprising is the presence of the Asus RT-N66U Dark Knight Tomato FlashRouter in the number two slot. As we’ve said before, in terms of speed, adaptability, and sheer power, there are few routers that can compare to this open-sourced beast.
Anyway, enjoy the rest of our list. Happy hunting!

Most Requested VPN Service Provider Set-Ups of August 2013
Maybe it was the incredible summer special HideMyAss VPN was offering all of August (which is, sadly, now expired), or maybe it’s just the tremendous service this VPN provider has consistently offered. Either way, after months at the top, Overplay VPN has finally been usurped! HideMyAss VPN takes the top slot!
Don’t feel too bad for Overplay though; they held strong at number two. IPVanish VPN made good as well, jumping up a couple of slots since our last list was compiled with their 3 free months promotion. New additions to the FlashRouters family like IVPN and EarthVPN are quickly moving up in the ranks as well.
Anyway, no matter which VPN service provider you choose, you can’t go wrong, and FlashRouters has the devices to make your VPN experience uncomplicated and fluid. Enjoy!
- HideMyAss – Top Overall US & UK server selection.
- Overplay – Easiest to integrate in your router and use OpenVPN.
- PrivateInternetAccess – Best Budget VPN Service
- IPVanish – Offers some of the fastest server speeds worldwide and popular in the Middle East.
