Feel left out in the cold by the Wireless-AC party?

Sure, no one argues about the fact that Wireless-AC routers are the fastest and most powerful around, but that top-tier performance can come at a high price, financially speaking. No longer.

At FlashRouters, there is a brand new Asus DD-WRT compatible router that will bring you that inimitable Wireless-AC flair without breaking the bank.

The Asus RT-AC56U DD-WRT FlashRouter

Meet the Asus RT-AC 56U Wireless-AC1200 DD-WRT FlashRouter, the future of your network for under $200!


The Asus RT-AC56U DD-WRT FlashRouter comes equipped with

  • A supremely powerful 800 MHz Broadcom processor – Almost twice the speed of any similarly priced DD-WRT router. Processing speed is the most important part of the rotuer specs to onsider when it comes to VPN use. AS the processor increases so does the handling to the constant encryption/decryption that goes on within your wireless network.
  • A USB 3.0 port – For lightning quick transfer speeds up to 10x faster than USB 2.0.

But really the star of the show is…


Wireless-AC is the latest wireless draft for exponential signal capacity in the wireless market. Put another way, in terms of speed, Wireless-AC routers are ruling the roost right now. Especially when it comes to the addition of Wireless-AC to the iPhone 6 and iPhone Air 2.

If you’re one of the many people who streams most of their media these days, or if you just hate watching an endlessly buffering screen, then you need a fast router, and the Asus RT-AC56U delivers in spades, offering dual-band speeds of up to 1200 Mbps (300 @ 2.4 GHz & 867 @ 5 Ghz). You can thank Wireless-AC for that.

And where most Wireless-AC FlashRouters tend to cost north of $300, the Asus RT-AC56U delivers the goods at a shockingly low price of $199.99.  This is simply too good to miss.

Free One Year Warranty

FlashRouters typically arrive with a free 90 day warranty, with an added option of a 1 year warranty for an additional $25. The Asus RT-AC56U, however, comes intact with a free 1 year warranty at just under $200. On top of all the added tech features, this extra warranty makes the RT-AC56U even more of a must have.

Added DD-WRT Features for the Asus RT-AC56U DD-WRT

Would you believe that there is even more to recommend this device? How about DD-WRT firmware, which takes the router’s standard firmware and basically supercharges it? Using an Asus DD-WRT compatible router means access to features like:

  • Premium Wireless Signal Clarity & Dual Band Coverage: Better quality audio and HD video streaming by design.
  • Standardized OpenVPN & PPTP Client/Server Integration.
  • Upgraded Stability: No more constant resetting or rebooting.
  • Elimination of Asus firmware issues, bugs, security vulnerabilities, limitations & quirks.
  • Advanced QoS: Manage & prioritize bandwidth/performance of services like Netflix, Skype, YouTube or P2P.
  • Integrated Wireless Survey Page: View conflicting wireless networks in your area to tweak your network accordingly.
  • Complete VLAN Support: Create properly secured segmented networks.

The RT-AC 56U is an Asus router compatible with DD-WRT that even offers full VPN service integration, just like every other FlashRouter. This means that you can receive your router ready to work with your VPN subscription right out of the box, provided that it’s one of the many VPN service providers featured on our Official Supported Provider List.
