The Smart DNS Proxy Linksys E2500 Tomato FlashRouter is one of our most popular dual band devices for users looking for an all-around router upgrade at a economical price.
Besides being ready for a Smart DNS Proxy set-up right out of the box, the TomatoUSB E2500 offers N600 wireless speed capacity (300 2.4 GHz / 300 5 Ghz), utilizing 4 internal antennas. Combine that with the Tomato-added perk of being able to manually manage wireless transmission power, manage access restrictions, utilize an always-on protective firewall, and enjoy a bevy of graphing, logs, and monitoring features, and you've got a router built to perform!
Since DD-WRT firmware doesn’t play as nice with some of the newer Linksys models in our testing, the Linksys E2500 gets upgraded to the increasingly popular Tomato firmware - which is fully tested by our networking experts - and in the process becomes our best mid-level Tomato router.
Recommended For: 2-4 users looking for basic web, email, and video streaming on 1-3 connected devices. Ideal for small-to-mid-sized homes and home offices.
Using Tomato can make your network infinitely more stable and easier to tweak. FlashRouters provides a complete out-of-the-box, plug-and-play, Tomato-upgraded router solution that includes all of the most popular Tomato features.
