Introduced in 2002, the classic Linksys WRT54G served the role as the first Open Source DD-WRT router. Now, in this age of remakes and reboots, Linksys has brought the WRT series back from the techno-graveyard, bigger and badder than ever. That clunky blue and black box with two antennas prodding out of the back has been improved with a sleek starship design, complete with four external antennas.
The IPVanish WRT1900ACS AKA the special edition 1900AC v2 gets bonus points for featuring the fastest processor currently available in a FlashRouter. The 1.6 GHz Dual-Core ARM processor in the WRT1900ACS is also one of the first FlashRouters to use a Marvell chipset. If you are looking for a high-end router for gaming, streaming, video calls, or general improvement on your VPN use, look no further.
Upgrading to a DD-WRT WRT1900ACS allows for built-in IPVanish connections with OpenVPN and PPTP, creating a secure tunnel for any device just by connecting to the router. When you use a IPVanish 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.
Dual Router Setup Ready: In the dual router setup, one router is connected to your local Internet Service Provider and the WRT1900AC v2 can be used as a dedicated IPVanish router.
If you enter in your username, password, and preferred IP location for your IPVanish account during the secure checkout, your WRT1900ACS will be able pre-configured for your account and ready to be used out of the box. If you would not like to share this information, you can set up the router yourself using a helpful setup guide that comes with every router.

This is an excellent router. Very robust, good looking, and easy to use. Setup and initial use is a cinch if you order one that is pre-configured one specifically for your VPN provider. It took me a while to understand the DD-WRT interface but after a bit of practice changing servers and time zones it turned out to be quite simple. It is useful to be able to do this to optimise speed.
I have been an IPVanish subscriber for years but I have only used them on my Laptop. A Friend told me I could use it on the router with a Flashrouter. Needless to say, I was intrigued. I went to Flashrouters and the team was helpful in answering all my questions. And then the router arrived and it was a super router. It was also easy to setup. This is a good company. The routers are good.
When all this started I wasn’t sure who to contact, Flashrouters or IPVanish. So I contacted both. I can tell you that after several problem solving sessions, you guys, Flashrouters, are way ahead of IPVanish when it comes to getting right to the problem. They seem to do a lot of experimenting and starting over. **bitchslapped**
Forget spending hours deciphering and testing the DD-WRT forums/website/Wiki for the correct hardware version and proper build only to discover that you've improperly flashed your device and bricked it.
FlashRouters offers what many router manufacturers won't: better firmware plus basic network and VPN service configuration assistance from responsive and highly trained USA tech support that will actually answer your questions.
