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!

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 This replaces out-of-date and vulnerability-riddled stock firmware adding features and security.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.

3. Plug and Play VPN Setup & Network Integration

Our team supports 50+ VPN Providers and is the preferred router seller for some of the top VPN providers around like European favorites NordVPN,  with premium speeds and support for users in Asia such as ExpressVPN, and the tier 1 only provider IPVanish that owns all their own servers.

4. No Need To Change Your Current Setup

Using one of the top routers of 2019 does not mean you will need to replace your current router setup. Using our popular Dual Router Setup for a dedicated VPN connection, a FlashRouter can work side-by-side with any current router, ISP router/modem, or ADSL router/modem right out of the box.

5. Comes Included With Our FlashRouters VPN Privacy App

Top Netgear VPN Router for Netflix - R7000 TomatoUSB

Netgear R7000 Nighthawk TomatoUSB

Our goal at FlashRouters is to offer a healthy mix of open-source firmware upgraded DD-WRT and TomatoUSB routers. Our method of choosing devices is always based on performance and functionality in long-term testing. Lately, that seems to have leaned heavily towards DD-WRT.

However, after months of requests, we are finally giving the people what they want — a high-powered Wireless-AC Tomato router!

That’s right. The much beloved DD-WRT Nighthawk now has a Tomato counterpart. The Netgear R7000 Nighthawk TomatoUSB AC1900 FlashRouter has launched to revolutionize your network control using its superpower, a special release of TomatoUSB open-source firmware.

Tomato Firmware Upgrade

As the brief video above showcases, upgrading or “flashing” a router with Tomato firmware heavily expands it features, integrations and setup option including:

  • Bug & backdoor fixes in Broadcom-based Netgear firmware.
  • Complete OpenVPN & PPTP Integration: Client & Server.
  • Multiple OpenVPN Connection Setup: TomatoUSB firmware allows for two VPN connection configurations within the router. Only one VPN connection can be used at a time but two can be saved for switching back and forth connections with ease.
  • Advanced access restrictions for increased network security: Limit access by day of the week, time, user, or block specific websites.
  • Advanced QoS: Prioritize your network traffic with advanced Quality of Service. Stream a lot of Netflix? Put it at the top of your list.
  • Integrated Wireless Survey page: View other wireless networks in your area that may be affecting your WiFi signal and adjust accordingly.

Dual Gateway Support

Integrated in the aforementioned Dual OpenVPN client setup in TomatoUSB, you will now see the just added Routing Policy tab. This may seem like a simple change but this is a game-changer that many of our TomatoUSB users have begged for.

Select VPN By Device

Put your Tomato router in two locations at once with dual gateway support. If you want certain devices on your network to run through the VPN and others to run through your local network, that can now be done within the Tomato OpenVPN firmware settings.

Routing Policy/Selective VPN By Website

And if that doesn’t wow you, how about this? Using the To Domain option, you can now set specific websites to go through VPN, while any other websites you visit will connect through your local ISP IP address. Want Netflix Instant to run through your VPN while keeping the rest of your web-browsing local? Using the new Tomato build, enter Netflix underneath you VPN connection and you’re good to go.

Use VPN based on device or website on any device

Since this is set up on a router, it will apply to all of your devices. Want to make sure BBC iPlayer is running through the UK on your iPad and your Roku? Done. Netflix US from Canada or Australia while your other activities stay local? This is the solution!

Advanced TomatoUSB Setup Support

Worried this looks a bit over your head or think you might need a helping hand with the latest R7000 Tomato build? That’s why we’re here!

Netflix Instant By Country Showdown #4: Johnny Depp Movies

Netflix Comparison by Country - US, UK, Netherlands, Mexico, Brazil, Canada

Updated: June 2016

Now that you know which country has the most Denzel Washington movies on Netflix Instant, the most Marvel & DC superhero movies on Netflix Instant on Netflix Instant, and the top selection of ’90s sitcoms on Netflix Instant, what comes next? Johnny Depp, of course.

With this amazing career, there are movies for fans of any variation of this acting chameleon, from heros to villians to creeps to geniuses to some unholy amalgam of all of those types. If you want 24-hour access to that famously boozy Captain Jack Sparrow, to that enthusiastically incompetent dreamer Ed Wood, or the tragically lovelorn Edward Scissorhands, where do you go?

Without giving away the game too early, let’s just say South and Central American Johnny Depp fans are a bit spoiled rotten by Netflix.

Brazil easily holds the lead with 14 Johnny Depp films! Not even losing a few Pirates of the Caribbean movies could thwart Brazil!

On the losing end, we have the Netherlands, which hemorrhaged a good number of Depp movies to drop it down to a paltry 2. Now that Netflix Everywhere has brought the service around the globe, the biggest beneficiary appears to be Japan, which debuts with a whopping 10 Johnny Depp movies (including Nightmare on Elm Street, which is not available anywhere else).

Saddest of all, we lost some really good work from Johnny Depp recently, as neither Ed Wood nor Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas are anywhere to be found on Netflix.

How to Watch Your Favorite Johnny Depp Movies on Netflix Instant From Anywhere

So now you know which country is streaming which Johnny Depp movie, but what use is that information if you can’t country-hop from Netflix to Netflix, streaming whichever Depp movie you please?

Well, with the help of VPNs, you can do just that. In addition to helping people all over the globe protect their wireless network from cybercriminals and snooping governments, VPN service providers are extremely helpful for those looking to transcend the bounds of geographical internet restrictions.

Stuck in the US and looking to stream Blow? Log into your VPN and pick an encrypted server based in Spain. You get an IP address in one of those countries and your internet-capable device thinks it’s wherever you’d like it to be. Or maybe you’re in Mexico and want to watch 21 Jump Street. Follow the same procedure as the previous example, only pick a Canadian or German server.
