Here at FlashRouters, we only stock the best of the best wireless router brands available. This includes, but is not limited to Linksys, Netgear, and Asus. Today, we will be highlighting some of our best Asus routers and showcasing how open-source firmware makes them even better.
Open-Source Firmware On Asus Routers
Our Asus routers come pre-flashed with your choice of two different open-source firmware. These firmwares are DD-WRT and Tomato.
Both of these firmwares fully upgrade your router’s capabilities, whether it be stability, performance, or even the ability to use a VPN. Some upgrades include:
- Major bug fixes and backdoor removal
- OpenVPN, PPTP, & L2TP VPN Client Integration
- VLAN (Vitual LAN) Support
- Increased bandwidth via antenna transmission adjustments
- Advanced port forwarding
Whether your preferred firmware is DD-WRT or Tomato, you will not be disappointed. At this point, there are no major functional differences between DD-WRT and Tomato firmware. The difference between DD-WRT and Tomato firmware shows itself in the design of the graphic user interface (GUI) of each router.
