As long as we keep adding faster and stronger DD-WRT & Tomato-boosted FlashRouters, and affiliating ourselves with superlative VPN services, our best-sellers list will continue to be varied and unpredictable.
Another month has gone by and the shake-ups continue. Let us take a look at what VPN routers and VPN services have been all the rage in the FlashRouters office this month.
Benefits of a DD-WRT or Tomato Firmware Upgrade
As the brief video above explains, a FlashRouter is a surefire way to cure an ailing wireless network. By taking already powerful routers and replacing their stock firmware with DD-WRT & Tomato, we create devices capable of just about anything.
What can a FlashRouter do? Check out these features:
- 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!
- Network wide ad-blocking with Privoxy.
- Improved Bandwidth Management and Restriction Tools
- Major firmware security holes removed like WPS and manufacturer backdoors.
- 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.
- Advanced control over wireless range and transmission power.
- VLAN (Virtual LAN) Support for segmenting networks.
We could go on and on like this, but we think you get the idea: DD-WRT and Tomato flashed routers are stocked with vital and useful options that make your wireless network a force to be reckoned with.

Much like last month, this month was dominated by the awesome power of the Nighthawk. How long will it be before a router comes along that can unseat the beast?
