What Is DD-WRT Router Firmware?

DD-WRT is an open-source router firmware upgrade project created to enhance the performance and features of consumer wireless routers. It is used by many networking-savvy users to enhance wireless router stability, privacy, and (most importantly) network security.

Essentially, DD-WRT unlocks expensive features usually limited to high-end business routers and runs them right on popular consumer models. To get these advanced features, you need to to have a DD-WRT installed router.

Additionally, DD-WRT has a slew of VPN & non-VPN related features to meet the common and niche needs of every user. For a more complete list of DD-WRT features, we recommend you review our full Intro to DD-WRT!

  • Bandwidth Graphing/Statistics: Real-time, daily & monthly
  • DHCP Server – Using DNSmasq with dynamic and static DHCP leases
  • Wi-Fi hotspot Integrations: Create hotspots for businesses with a verification page using the integrated Chillispot or NOCATSPLASH system
  • Adjustable Antenna Transmission Settings – Increase wireless strength and coverage
  • Wake-on-LAN – Remote network access
  • Samba file-share/CIFS client

  • JFFS2 Support

Top 5 Reasons You Need A DD-WRT FlashRouter

1. Pre-installed DD-WRT Firmware For Easy Setup

FlashRouters takes high-powered consumer grade hardware with stock firmware and, by adding improved DD-WRT firmware, turns a $50-$400 wireless router into something worth double or triple its value. This replaces out-of-date and vulnerability-riddled stock firmware adding features and security.

Additionally, flashing a router with DD-WRT can be a frustrating task for some, involving a lot of research, finding the correct model, file, trial and error that can easily lead to making a router unusable. Referred to as a dead router or a “bricking”, all this work would be for naught and completely void the device’s manufacturer warranty.

Benefits of FlashRouters

2. Experienced Open-Source Firmware Support

FlashRouters specializes in testing, upgrading, and supporting DD-WRT firmware routers worldwide. Our team only selects the top-performing routers, with the best variation of DD-WRT firmware for users’ needs, and delivers them right to your door.

Shipping Routers to Countries with Import Restrictions

FlashRouters ships around the world. Currently, people in over 75 countries use a FlashRouter to connect to the Internet. However, many countries impose import restrictions or bans on electronic devices, like routers. As such, we cannot ship to these countries directly.

FlashRouters is committed to providing network protection for anyone with an Internet connection. For people who live in a country with shipping limitations, we have to options for you: look into a freight forwarding service or take advantage of our one-on-one FlashRouters Remote Support Plan.

Benefits of Using a FlashRouter

For those unfamiliar, a FlashRouter is a wireless router flashed with customized Open Source firmware. Upgrading to a FlashRouter provides added network stability, increased range, and enhanced security.

And unlike most default configuration routers, a FlashRouter can be configured with a Virtual Private Network (VPN). VPNs work by tunneling your data through a secure tunnel, preventing outside snoopers from spying on your activity. Meaning that with a VPN, you can keep you and your family’s data secure.

Recommend VPN service providers include:

   



ExpressVPN
- Customized ExpressVPN firmware
- 30-day money back guarantee
- 24/7 customer service

IPVanish
- 1,100+ VPN servers in 60+ countries
- Owns and operates their own servers
- 3 months free with subscription



NordVPN
- Strict no logging policy
- Military grade encryption
- Award winning customer service

While VPNs also work for individual devices, VPN subscriptions only extend to specific devices and have limited connections per account, usually far below the number of connected devices that the average person has. However, with a FlashRouter you can configure your router with a VPN and cover all your devices with a VPN.

If you are interested in purchasing a VPN-configured FlashRouter, but live in a country that has import restrictions, read on to learn how Freight Forwarding can help!

Using A Freight Forwarder

For shipping to a country with import restrictions, a freight forwarding service is a great option for bringing a router to your door. A freight forwarding service does not actually ship the package, but instead acts as an intermediary between the shipper and various transportation services. In other words, freight forwarders handle logistics for the shipping of goods between one international location to the other.

Managing these shipping logistics requires extensive knowledge of shipping routes, trade regulations, and customs. Keeping track of all of these would confuse most people or small businesses looking to send a package overseas.

Thankfully, freight forwarders make this seemingly improbable task probable.

The Freight Forwarding Process

The freight forwarding process begins when a package is sent to the freight forwarder’s warehouse. There, the package receives clearance to leave its country of origin and is unloaded, inspected, and validated against its booking documents. Afterward, authorities check the package’s customs paperwork. Finally, the package is transferred from the import warehouse to its destination.

During this process, a host of documents must be filled out. These documents include the commercial invoice, Bill of Lading contract, certificate of origin, inspection certificate, export license, export packing list, and the shippers export declaration document. The documents always follow the product and are checked at each point in the shipping process.

Freight forwarders manage both sides of the shipping process. They plan the route, fill out the paperwork, and deal with customs. And, because they are able to legally bring in goods into territories with import restrictions, there are no legal implications.

Shipping to Countries With Import Restrictions

Countries with restrictions on importing routers include Israel, Cuba, Iraq, Iran, North Korea, Syria, Lebanon, Malaysia, Yemen, Russia, India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, and countries in Africa with the exception of South Africa, Morocco, and Egypt.

All of these countries have specific reasons for not allowing packages from the United States. Let’s go down the list for some of our most asked about restricted shipping countries and see why.

Shipping a VPN Router to Israel

Israeli law has very strict import policies regarding the import of telecommunications devices, which includes wireless routers. The purpose of this law is to protect local industry. While Israel and the United States do have fairly robust economic relations, sectors like agriculture and technology include significant import barriers.

Israeli customs checks all packages upon entrance and customs agents have final jurisdiction over what enters into the country. Using a freight forwarder to ship a FlashRouter to Israel solves this problem. Here is a list of shipping agents to choose from in Israel.

Open Source Routers in Cuba

In 1962, the United States government imposed a strict embargo against Cuba. Since then, aspects of the embargo have softened. However, telecommunications devices (including routers) have harsh restrictions.

Despite the change in policy, the existing legislation banning investment mentioned above is still in place. Meaning, exporters to Cuba could potentially face legal challenges. And, goods can still be seized by Cuban customs, so shipping directly to Cuba is very difficult. As such, shipping a router to Cuba would require a freight forwarding service. Crowley is one such service customers can use.

Using a VPN Router for Russia

The Russian Government places extreme restrictions on the import of technological goods from the US, including routers.

Following Russia’s involvement in Ukraine, including its role in shooting down a Malaysian air jet, the US and the EU imposed sanctions on Russia. In turn, the Russian government imposed several rounds of bans on many products from the US, most recently in mid-2018.

These restrictions make it nearly impossible to transport technology into the country. However, parcel services like MyUs are a potential way to ship to Russia. Services like MyUs will handle paperwork and customs.

To avoid dealing with the hassle of understanding import restrictions customers can also purchase a FlashRouters Remote Support Plan.

Best DD-WRT Wireless-AD Compatible Netgear Router - R9000 Nighthawk AD7200

While using a freight forwarding service is one way to receive a FlashRouter, it is not the only way to do so. There is always the option of purchasing the router locally and having the FlashRouters Support Team flash it remotely.

To do so, customers can purchase a FlashRouters Support Plan. Purchasing a subscription to the FlashRouters Support Plan grants you access to a support session with one of our trained technicians will flash your router from a remote location. This is an option perfect for anyone who already owns one of 50+ compatible routers we support.

The FlashRouters VPN Setup Plan installation also includes the latest open source firmware as well as integration of our custom VPN Router Privacy App. The app includes a variety of simplifying features to increase your network controls and enhance your privacy.

In addition, having a subscription to the Support Plan also means you will have access to the FlashRouters Support Team for any questions about your network configuration or VPN integration.

How To Use Tails And VPN To Increase Privacy

If you’re concerned about your Internet privacy, you’ve probably heard about Tails (The Amnesic Incognito Live System) and Virtual Private Networks.

Here is a rundown on how to use these tools to help protect your data.

What Is Tails OS?

tails-and-vpn

Tails is a Linux-based, live operating system that you can boot up on almost any computer from a USB drive or DVD. Tails runs independently of the computer’s operating system, leaving no trace unless you explicitly ask it to.

The goal of Tails is to preserve your privacy and anonymity and to help circumvent censorship. It includes several applications pre-configured with security in mind. These include but are not limited to: web browser, instant messaging client, email client, office suite, and many more.

Tails uses the Tor anonymity network to protect your online privacy. Tor works by bouncing your connection around a volunteer-based network of relays around the world.

Using Tails And VPN To Increase Privacy

The best way to use Tails and VPN in unison is by placing the VPN connection before the connection to Tor. This setup yields the most benefits, including but not limited to:

  1. The Tor network thinking you are the VPN server.
  2. If the Tor network is compromised, they must also get past the VPN server.
  3. If your ISP blocks the Tor network, the VPN allows access to the Tor network.

This configuration enables Tails to operate exactly as designed but with a VPN server between your computer and the Internet. This can be easily achieved with a VPN FlashRouter.

What Makes a FlashRouter Different?

A FlashRouter is a custom wireless router with VPN capabilities, allowing for easy connection to your favorite VPN provider. This set up allows for perfect connection from your Tails computer, to your VPN provider, to the Tor network, enabling multiple layers of security.Best DD-WRT Wireless-AD Compatible Netgear Router - R9000 Nighthawk AD7200

EU Copyright Directive Approved: Catastrophic Results Ahead?

The European Parliament has voted in favor of the EU Copyright Directive. This controversial piece of legislation could lead to catastrophic results for Internet users in the EU. Two articles within the EU Copyright Directive – Article 11 and Article 13 – have been referred to as the “link tax” and the “meme ban.” While defenders of the legislation state the Directive will help stop digital piracy, many fear the effects of these new laws will be nothing short of Orwellian.

Nevertheless, the Copyright Directive is not yet law. The European Council, Commission, and Parliament still need to decide on a final wording, a process that will likely last until December 2018. Once that happens, the Directive will need to be approved one more time by the European Parliament in January 2019. However, Internet users in the EU should still focus on protecting their home networks from even more totalitarian legislation.

First and foremost, the EU Copyright Directive is a form of legislation limiting the use of copyrighted content on online platforms. Proponents of the Directive say that this will help content creators as users will no longer be able to share copyrighted materials. As a result, these proponents believe that content creators will be properly paid for the use of their copyrighted material.

However, the Directive’s opponents see a much darker scenario. Article 13 of the Directive, referred to above as the “meme ban”, states “online content sharing service providers and right holders shall cooperate in good faith in order to ensure that unauthorized protected works or other subject matter are not available on their services.”

The Best VPNs To Prevent The Government From Viewing Your Data

What can EU Internet users do? While using a Virtual Private Network will not prevent the “link tax” or “meme ban” from going into effect, it will protect your network from any snooping intruders, be they of the government or unlawful citizenry. Here are some of the most popular and trust worthy providers:

  • NordVPN – Use over 5156 servers from 62 countries around the world. Pay using bitcoin for maximum security. No logging and military grade AES 256-bit encryption!
  • ExpressVPN – Over 2,000 VPN servers in 148 server locations in 94 countries. Unlimited bandwidth, speed, and server switches. Recommended VPN service for China.
  • IPVanish – No logs! Own and operate their own servers. Over 40,000 IPs on 1,000+ servers in more than 60 countries! Recommended VPN service for the Middle East, including UAE & Dubai.
  • HideMyAss – Connect to a VPN server in seconds. Automatically chooses the least loaded server in a location to ensure top speeds.

Article 11: The Link Tax

Now, back to the specifics of the EU Copyright Directive.

Article 11 has been referred to as the “link tax.” Concerning Article 11, “information society service providers” (news aggregators like Google News) must provide “remuneration” for the “digital use” of “press publications.”

In other words, if a news aggregator site posts a portion of a news article, they will have to pay the publisher of the original article. Article 11 is not clear on just how much of the original article will have to be posted before the initial publisher must be paid. The most recent version of the bill does provide an exemption for “legitimate private and non-commercial use of press publications by individual users”. However, the idea of having to pay for posting a portion of an article should be disturbing for anyone who believes in a free and open Internet.

Article 13: The Meme Ban

Article 13 states that “information society service providers,” sites like YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, which rely heavily on user-generated content, will be responsible for taking down content that infringes on copyright. A preceding version of the article mentioned the use of “content recognition technologies,” referring to a potential “upload filter”.

Furthermore, Article 13 has been referred to as the “meme ban” as many memes use copyrighted images. Defenders of the Directive believe that memes will be protected by parody laws. However, many believe the “upload filters” will not be able to distinguish between memes and other material.

Protecting Your Network From Draconian Governments

Best DD-WRT Wireless-AD Compatible Netgear Router - R9000 Nighthawk AD7200

There is not much that EU Internet users will be able to do to protect themselves from the Copyright Directive. Facebook, YouTube, Google, and other giants of the Internet will be forced to comply with the legislation if it passes. With this, users will be forced to comply as well.

However, this does not mean that EU citizens need to fall prey to any and all draconian Internet rules. Using a Virtual Private Network from a service like IPVanish or NordVPN on a FlashRouter (like the R9000 pictured above) will allow you to encrypt your entire network. While encryption will not be able to protect you from having content blocked by “upload filters”, it will be able to protect your network from any outside intruders, like the a snooping government or individuals with prying eyes.

In a world of ubiquitous Internet use, it is important to make sure your connections are secure and encrypted. Just as we remember to lock the door to our homes at night, we should do the same for our WiFi networks. While we may not be able to stop every totalitarian action placed by governments in order to limit our Internet use, we can still protect ourselves using a VPN.

Stream NBA Games With NBA League Pass

NBA League Pass

The best way to stream NBA games is with NBA League Pass. Subscribers are able to choose a variety of different plans, such as the standard NBA League Pass, NBA Team Pass, or NBA League Pass Premium. These plans vary in pricing and offer different perks. Perks range from virtual reality for certain games and even in-arena streaming in lieu of commercials.

NBA League Pass Pricing

Subscribers can stream NBA League Pass via the web, iPhones, iPads, Androids, Tablets, or video games consoles.

Unfortunately, NBA League Pass is subject to regional blackout restrictions. Blackout restrictions exist because some local and national content providers own exclusive rights to certain games.

How To Stream Every NBA Game With International NBA League Pass

Luckily, there is a way to bypass EVERY regional blackout in the United States and Canada. The remedy is simple: subscribe to the International version of NBA League Pass! This version of NBA League Pass is only available to individuals outside of the United States.

With International NBA League Pass, subscribers get full access to all live games. Subscribers get access to all NBA games played during the regular season, All Star Weekend, Playoffs, and the Finals. Gone are the days of getting blocked by regional restrictions.

So what happens if you’re in the United States but want to subscribe to International NBA League Pass? Use a virtual private network of course!

A Virtual Private Network, or VPN, is a service that routes and encrypts your online data to a secure VPN server anywhere in the world. This makes it look like your Internet connection is connecting from your chosen VPN server.

For example, a person in the United States connecting to a VPN server in the United Kingdom will trick NBA League Pass into thinking they’re from the United Kingdom. This allows for them to subscribe to and watch International NBA League Pass and access geo-blocked content from around the world, all while protecting your online data!

The Best VPN Providers For International NBA League Pass

Getting around regionally restricted NBA games on NBA League Pass is as easy as using a VPN. A VPN allows an individual to route their connection to a secure and remote VPN server, effectively changing their IP address. This makes appear as if they are in the location of the VPN server rather than their home.

  • ExpressVPN – Over 2,000 VPN servers in 148 server locations in 94 countries. Unlimited bandwidth, speed, and server switches. Recommended VPN service for China.
  • NordVPN – Use over 5,156 servers from 62 countries around the world. Pay using bitcoin for maximum security. No logging and military grade AES 256-bit encryption!
  • IPVanish – No logs! Own and operate their own servers. Over 40,000 IPs on 1,000+ servers in more than 60 countries! Recommended VPN service for the Middle East, including UAE & Dubai.
