Supercharge Your Router with DD-WRT  

Manufacturers develop routers with non-technical users in mind, making them simple and easy to use while limiting their effectiveness as a web-access gateway. Our FlashRouter Experts will transform your router into a powerful, multi-use, business-class router with DD-WRT firmware. 

What do you get with the Flash My Router Service?

1 Remote Support Session

Anyone who purchases a FlashRouter Premium Support Plan will receive hands-on assistance via TeamViewer, a remote tech support application. With TeamViewer our team can login directly to your network and complete all the required FlashRouter setup and configuration. Our team will live chat directly with you throughout the session and answer any questions you may have about the process. Once completed, our team will always save a backup file containing all configuration changes so that you can quickly restore them if you ever run into issues or lose any router settings.

OPEN SOURCE FIRMWARE "FLASH" UPGRADE

Our “flashing” experts thoroughly test all new releases of firmware builds before they are approved for use with a Flash My Router Service Plan. We will flash your router with the most recent stable build/release.

Basic Internet Setup

Once your router is upgraded with Open Source Firmware our team will help you get the router connected to the Internet.

WIFI NETWORK SETUP AND EXTENDER SUPPORT

Our team will optimize wireless settings and setup wireless security on your FlashRouter so no unwanted users can access your WiFi connection. If you have a wireless network connection that you would like to extend, or if you need additional wired ports for Internet access, then our team can configure your DD-WRT FlashRouter as a Wireless Client Bridge, Repeater Bridge, Wireless Access Point (WAP), or Repeater.

FLASHROUTERS PRIVACY APP INSTALLATION

Now that your router is upgraded with DD-WRT firmware we can install the FlashRouters Privacy App which makes connecting to VPN from your router easier than ever before. Top providers like NordVPN, ExpressVPN, CyberGhost, ProtonVPN, HMA, PIA, Surfshark, and many more come integrated out of the box. Simply enter your VPN credentials, select your VPN server, and click Connect.

VPN KILL SWITCH OPTION

Once we install the FlashRouter Privacy App our team will show you how to use the Kill Switch feature to disable your entire network if you are not connected to VPN at any time. You can also use Kill Switch for only specific devices in the FlashRouters Privacy App if you do not want to apply the feature to your entire router network.

VPN ROUTING BY DEVICE AND WIFI NETWORK

Once we install the FlashRouter Privacy App our team will show you how to use policy routing by device feature, where you can choose whether a device should be connected to VPN or bypass VPN with a dropdown menu selection. Our team will also show you how to use policy routing by WiFi network feature, where you can choose whether a WiFi network should be connected or bypass VPN. This feature allows you to have a VPN WiFi network and local ISP WiFi network broadcasting from your FlashRouter at the same time, allowing you to easily connect to your network of choice with any device.

WHY A VPN ROUTER?

1

GET A VPN CONNECTION ON ALL YOUR DEVICES
Even devices that don't support VPN

2

EASE OF SETTING UP JUST ONE VPN CONNECTION
For an entire home or office!

Single Router VPN Setup

  • Connect your FlashRouter through a modem and create a fully encrypted, VPN connected, wired and wireless network in your home for any streaming devices, gaming systems, SmartTVs, and more.
  • LEARN MORE

Dual Router VPN Setup

Connect your FlashRouter through a modem and create a fully encrypted, VPN connected, wired and wireless network in your home for any streaming devices, gaming systems, SmartTVs, and more.

  • If you have an existing router, including any commonly used DSL router/modems or Verizon Fios supplied Actiontec routers (just to name a few), our team will help you add in a VPN connection option in your network without changing any settings on your primary router device.
  • The result is two wired and wireless networks available in your home or office at the same time - your primary network for unencrypted local ISP connections and a FlashRouter network for encrypted VPN connections. Pick and choose between any wired or wireless network on all of your Internet connected devices.
  • If you require a PPPoE login to connect to your Internet service provider, you may use your existing router to connect to your ISP via PPPoE and then connect the FlashRouter in a Dual Router Setup in order to create a VPN network in your home.
  • LEARN MORE

Dual Gateway VPN Setup

  • The Dual Gateway feature also known as Policy Based Routing in the FlashRouters Privacy App allows any user to choose which devices or which WiFi networks go through VPN, and which ones bypass the VPN tunnel. 
  • LEARN MORE

VPN Guest Network

  • With the FlashRouter Privacy App you can easily create Guest WiFi Networks. Once you do this you can also use the FlashRouter Privacy App to send one guest network through your local ISP, and then a separate guest wireless network through VPN, allowing any devices you want to automatically connect to the network of choice.
  • Note this can not be done by separating your single and dual band broadcasts. This is accomplished through the use of Guest Network wireless setup features in conjunction with Policy Based Routing rules.
  • LEARN MORE 

Wireless VPN Extender

  • If you have a MiFi wireless network or you do not have access to your primary router network through a normal Ethernet connection then you can use a FlashRouter with DD-WRT installed to create a wireless extender. After the extender setup is complete, our team can install the FlashRouter Privacy App setup a VPN connection with your desired service provider to protect this extended network through an encrypted VPN connection.
  • LEARN MORE 

What's Not Included

  • Additional Support and Service time is not included unless you subscribe to a FlashRouter Service Plan. FlashRouter Service Plans are available during checkout, or can be added at a later date.
  • By turning your router into a "FlashRouter" there are countless enterprise router features that you can now use for your benefit, however our support team is unable to offer direct assistance for all of these open source firmware setups.
  • The "Flash My Router" product comes with hands on support from the FlashRouters team for firmware “flashing”, Internet connection setup, wireless network setup, VPN Client connection support via the FlashRouters Privacy App, VPN Customization, and Wireless Customization Support.
  • Support for features such as Personal VPN Server/Client, Port Forwarding, QoS, Access Restriction, DDNS, USB storage or 3G/4G failover setup, and any other feature not explicitly listed as supported are not covered when you purchase a Flash My Router Service Plan.
  • Our Support Team is happy to provide guidance, links, and tutorials for advanced features to the best of our ability however remote support for these features is not included.
  • One of the best benefits of using open source firmware is the active help forums and vast community of like-minded users, who can often help troubleshoot with advanced setups you have in mind.
