Well, folks, we have less than a month until Christmas, and though we’ve already offered up an overlooked tech & gadget gift guide, we’re going to give you another opportunity to peruse our most popular devices.
After all, what better way to show a friend or relative that you care than by making sure their wireless network is running like a Swiss watch all year round? It’s truly the gift that keeps on giving!
So take a look at some of the most popular wireless routers and VPN service provider set-up requests of November 2013. Find out what devices and services are bringing our customers joy during this, the most wonderful time of the year.
The Benefits of a DD-WRT or Tomato FlashRouter
But first, before we dig into our most popular wireless routers and VPN service provider set-up requests, we thought it might be necessary to provide a little primer detailing what it is FlashRouters can do for you.
At FlashRouters, our mission is to provide our customers with wireless routers that are a cut above. We want our devices to be faster, more powerful, and more versatile than any others on the market.
We achieve that goal by flashing all of our wireless routers with DD-WRT or Tomato firmware. DD-WRT and Tomato are replacement firmwares that vastly improve the functionality of a wireless router. With DD-WRT or Tomato, your whole wireless network opens up, allowing you to extend your wireless range, access advanced security options, or even control how your bandwidth is allocated!
Then there’s all this:
- 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!
- 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.
And that’s just scratching the surface! But if you’re still unconvinced or unsure about what we do here, maybe this brand new video can clear things up:
Most Popular Wireless Routers – November 2013
After a few minor shake-ups over the last couple of months, the standings have mostly returned to the norm. The E4200 DD-WRT remains on top (with it’s Tomato companion showing strong at number 4), and the Dark Knight Tomato router continues to make a competitive challenger at number 2.
That said, our new Wireless-AC routers are quickly imposing themselves on this list, with the new RT-AC66U entering at number 6 and the even newer Netgear R6300 making waves at number 9!
Anyway, that’s all that’s new to report. Happy holiday hunting!
Most Popular VPN Service Provider Set-Up Requests
Much like the wireless routers list, the VPN service provider set-up request list finds the usual competitors (HideMyAss, PrivateInternetAccess, Overplay) holding down the top slots while newcomers or, in this case, newcomer (CyberGhost), add a little newness to the proceedings. So congrats to CyberGhost for joining the team, and we’ll see if it has what it takes to challenge the heavyweights in the new year!
