EA6900 DD-WRT = Open-Source Linksys Wireless-AC

The Linksys EA6900 FlashRouter is the beefed up, next evolution of the Linksys E4200, an all-time best selling DD-WRT classic with a boost twist. 

Upgrading from top-end Wireless-N to top-end Wireless-AC, the FlashRouter Linksys EA6900 upgraded with DD-WRT offers twice the max wireless capabilities at 1900 Mbps with almost 100% more processing power at 800 MHz.

The twist is the return of external antennas to a Linksys model. With these three powerful external antennas, be prepared for extended range, WiFi transmission power, and upgradability. Currently, this is the only Linksys DD-WRT model we offer with external antennas

The EA6900 preinstalled with DD-WRT includes an International Dual Voltage (100v - 240v) power adapter with a US plug. International adapters are available here.

So if you are a big fan of the Linksys E4200 and looking for the Wireless-AC upgrade with some more perks, the FlashRouter Linksys AC1900 EA6900 is the ideal wireless router for you.

Ready for Powerful Streaming & Total VPN Integration

FlashRouters takes this excellent Linksys hardware and unleashes its full potential by upgrading the firmware to a fully-featured DD-WRT build. This allows for OpenVPN, PPTP or L2TP VPN-client integration with your office or preferred VPN service provider, advanced control over transmission power of your WiFi, and full control over all of your network traffic that can simultaneously run on both a 5Ghz band for HD streaming and 2.4Ghz band for online computer connections. 

The Linksys EA6900 is built to handle multiple wireless streams with ease. The advanced processing power means reduced buffering for streaming video which in turn means you get to watch uninterrupted HD movies and play online games on your PS4 or XboxOne without stalling. For that reason alone, it is the most popular router for users seeking upgraded HD streaming video quality to watch Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, BBC iPlayer and more! 

Wireless-AC Speed, Wireless-N Compatible

Offering the highest available dual band wireless speeds with up to 1900 Mbps Wireless-AC (600 2.4 Mbps & 1300 5.0 Mbps), the EA6900 DD-WRT FlashRouter VPN Router delivers the fastest performance to handle a large amount of connected device.

Backwards compatible with Wireless-N/A/B/G/H devices like Xbox One, Rokus, iPad & PS4s, to old laptops - those looking for high quality HD video streaming for Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Instant or improved Skype video chat/FaceTime, the Netgear EA6900 FlashRouter VPN DD-WRT device is created to handle it and more!

Popular EA6900 DD-WRT Setup Options

Using DD-WRT can make your network infinitely more stable and easier to tweak. FlashRouters creates a complete out-of-the-box, plug and play DD-WRT upgraded router solution that includes all the most popular DD-WRT features:

  • VPN Router: Upgrading to a DD-WRT EA6900 allows for built-in VPN connections with OpenVPN and PPTP, creating a secure tunnel for any device just by connecting to the router. When you use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection, you get an additional layer of Internet security and encryption that allows you to mask your location or to access regionally restricted video and streaming content. Read more about what VPN can do under the VPN Service tab.
     
  • Dual Router Setup: In the dual router setup, one router is connected to your local Internet Service Provider and the EA6900 can be used as a dedicated VPN router. Learn more about the FlashRouters Dual Router Setup.
     
  • Wireless Extender/Bridge Options:  This will allow you to extend the current reach of the router, improving wireless range in homes and offices. You can also use DD-WRT to create a wireless bridge.

    With a wireless bridge, you can establish a wired connection without running actual cables and you can create wired ports for a 3G/4G MiFi device. Get a more extensive breakdown on our post on Wireless Repeaters and Bridges. Please look under the Support Plan tab for additional tech support information if you plan to use one of these setups.

    The Linksys EA6900 is an amazing device from a fantastic company. From the beginning, my FlashRouters experience was fantastic. I called the company and had a nice discussion with the Sales representative, who informed me about this router. I placed the order over the phone and got the router in 2 days, working perfectly with my IPVanish account out of the box. Awesome!

    This is a very solid router. In a way, it was a life changer.To be honest, I've been having issues with other routers for years. I'm a cord cutter, so imagine the feeling I get when I'm watching a football match and my Internet drops out halfway through. With no cable TV service to watch the game, just BBC Sport online... what could I do? Upgrading to a FlashRouter has stabilized my wireless connection and made my streaming a dream. Now my anxiety can be centered on whether or not Oldham will beat Rochdale... not whether or not my Internet will drop out during the match.
