  • Broadcom 1.4 GHz (1400 MHz) Dual Core Processor
  • 8 Massively Powerful External Antennas
  • Best-in-Class RAM/Flash Memory in a Wireless Router

Tired of that boring old router sitting on your shelf? Wish you had something more "dangerous"? Something that looked like it was designed by Alien artist HR Giger? You're in luck.

The Asus RT-AC5300 not only looks like a robotic Alien "facehugger", it performs like one too. Featuring a best-in-class 1.4 GHz processor alongside 8 (yes, eight!!) external antennas, the AC5300 is the ultimate, top-tier (or should we say "God Tier") router for lag-free gaming and high quality 4K streaming. With cross-platform compatibility and game acceleration, the AC5300 is a must for any gamer looking to seriously "rekt" it up.

And that's not all. This router has unbeatable Wi-Fi coverage, with a four-transmit, four-recieve (4T4R) antenna design and the aforementioned 8 external antennas, creating Tri-Band WiFi. If you are looking to create a powerful network with many devices, please, look no further.

The latest of our Asus Wireless-AC DD-WRT routers revamps your networking options, controls, and capabilities for any gadget while still offering full support for legacy devices (Wireless-N & Wireless-G).

What Does DD-WRT Firmware Add to the Asus RT-AC5300?

The Asus RT-AC5300 FlashRouter is the premiere choice for users who want top-notch, high-definition video streaming quality for your favorite services: Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, BBC iPlayer, WatchESPN, and Hulu, among others. Tired of buffering? Choose the  premium router hardware that features a hand-crafted firmware upgrade with the stability, improved security, and full customizability of the open source DD-WRT Linux kernel!

Full OpenVPN & PPTP Integration

Using DD-WRT firmware can make a wireless or wired network infinitely more stable and easier to tweak. 

We upgrade the RT-AC5300 to DDWRT, thereby integrating advanced network security options including VPN connectivity. Using VPN allows you to create a secure tunnel for connected devices just by connecting to the router; giving you an additional layer of encryption & personal privacy from prying government eyes, and allowing you to mask your location for additional security.

Asus RT-AC5300 Specifications

Broadcom 1.4 GHz (1400 MHz) Dual Core Processor

The RT-AC5300 model bumps the internal processor to a DD-WRT-leading 1.4 GHz (1400 MHz) Broadcom CPU. This is the one of the best dual core routers we offer with DD-WRT support.

Processing is the key to high performance routing, and this one has room to burn and grow as streaming video demands become increasingly more intensive. For VPN users, having a large processor is imperative to streamline the constant encryption and decryption the router will need perform in the process. The better the processor, the faster the VPN-encrypted information can get to you.

8 Powerful External Antennas

The Asus RT-AC5300 integrates 8 four high-powered external antennas (a first for Asus Wireless-AC routers) for maximum wireless reach and performance. Since they are external, they are easily upgradable to even more powerful antennas for extended reach if you so desire.

    I want to stress not only your excellent tech support but your Flashed Routers. They come with excellent instructions but also the Quality an Performace aspect too. It comes back to the Ole saying you get for what you PAY FOR. Your flashed Routers come with the least amounts of head aches an your Team Veiwer software on the tech side can't be beat hands down. If ever I need a Flashed Router or to replace any of my Routers you guys will get my bussiness before any of off the shelf store ones. Again thank the whole Team from the chat folks helping me picking out just what I needed, to the Flashing Team, an TO YOU for all your assistance AND Patience for a newbie like me Take care god bless all. If I have any quick questions I'll be in touch.

  3. Such a Beast review by Charles on 10/10/2016

    This router is amazing. Such a beast! I love this thing. Just look at it. The antennae are great- really impressive range. Streaming in 4K too with this thing... so cool. Flash routers rules!

  4. Great Help review by Hubert on 5/12/2016

    Quality

    I moved to Argentina late last year, and to my dismay, I found it rather untenable that nearly every service I use to watch my programming was blocked on the basis of my location.

    Completely unfamiliar with this concept of "geo-blocking", I trailed through an uncountable number of pages of search results, desperately looking for some deus ex machina that would appear from the less traveled parts of the Internet and allow me to access my precious episodes of "House of Cards."

    And as I was about to give up, FlashRouters appeared and offered a working solution, like the hand of Zeus I so weakly desired.

    Now I am using a high powered router with a trust worthy VPN service, with the chains of geo-location blocking smashed forever. Freedom at last! Thank you FlashRouters!

    Below is my review of the chat session I had during the sales process.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    I had a great experience and rate this chat highly.

    The person on the other end of the chat, known to me simply as 'FlashRouters Sales', was very much trying to help me accomplish and get done what I was trying to get done. I felt like we were working together as a team, not on opposing teams. One of several 'for examples', that I could sight, is that I did notice right off that I did not have to explain things over and over in different ways to make my point. I did not have to repeat myself, or remind 'FlashRouters Sales' what my goals were, or what I had already said. Unbelievably I have had to do that many times (over the years) with salespeople, face to face, on the phone or even more so, on chat. However, chat is a much more difficult means of communication. 'FlashRouters Sales' is very easy to communicate with via chat. This tells me, 'the customer' that 'FlashRouters Sales'; knows the industry and their business (flashrouters.com).

    I could go on and on, but I don't want to make it appear that I am over doing it on behalf of 'FlashRouters Sales' because they were able to save me a few extra dollars. That is not the main reason I am writing this up. I was most impressed that 'FlashRouters Sales' instinctively understood that my priority was to get my order in before 1pm so that your company could work on my router and get it out to me ASAP. I am grateful that 'FlashRouters Sales' was able to save me the money as well, and not get frustrated with me in regards to my pressing about that.

    I believe that 'FlashRouters Sales' is an asset to your company and somebody you should be proud to have on your companies team.

    Highest Regards,

    Mike M
