The Nighthawk Has Landed...

Want better quality streaming video like Netflix, Amazon Instant on a Roku, Chromecast, AppleTV & Amazon Firestick? Need to rise above interference problems from neighboring WiFi routers? VPN Client & Server Integration for OpenVPN or PPTP? Of course you do.

Meet the Netgear R7000 Nighthawk DD-WRT FlashRouter, AKA, the Netgear Nighthawk, a networking centerpiece with more than enough power and style to future-proof your WiFi network to next-gen Wireless-AC standards. The Netgear R7000 Nighthawk prepares your network for all the latest devices while still offering full support for Wireless-G and Wireless-N legacy devices.

The R7000 model bumps the internal processor to a DD-WRT best-in-class Dual Core 1 GHz (1000 MHz) Broadcom CPU, among our best bang for your buck devices. 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 for the constant encryption and decryption the router will need to perform in this process. The better the processor, the faster the VPN encrypted information can get to you.

NEW! FlashRouters Router Privacy App - VPN Privacy Made Easy!

Manually setting up a VPN service on a router has always been notoriously complicated, frustrating and unnecessarily confusing…. until NOW!

Introducing the FlashRouters Router Privacy App - the simple browser-based solution to connect a VPN service on a router. Just a couple clicks and secure your entire home network.

Developed by the DD-WRT & VPN experts at FlashRouters, the FlashRouters Router Privacy App integrates support for most top VPN services.

How Does The FlashRouter Privacy App Protect You?

The FlashRouters Privacy App works just like an app for Android, Windows or Apple iOS except it’s located on your router. And there is no separate app to install.

However, when you connect to VPN with the FR App, it is not just your computer that you are securing, instead you are securing every device in your home at once. Simply enter your VPN login information, search for your preferred VPN server location, and click Connect to get started.

Premium FR Privacy App Features

  • Easily Manage VPN Devices and Names.
  • Select Setup For Each Device: VPN with Kill-Switch, VPN without Kill-Switch, or VPN-Bypass
  • App Update Alert Notifications - No need to update firmware to get new features.
  • Access DD-WRT FR App Settings via Direct URL.
  • VPN Server Search
  • Auto Connect to VPN on Startup
  • IP Checker
  • Global Kill Switch
  • Kill Switch By Device

In many cases you may not want your entire home network to tunnel through your router VPN connection, and so we have also built enhanced VPN management options in the FR Privacy App.

Auto Connect to VPN

Choose to start the router VPN connection as soon as you connect to the Internet. Reboot your router at any time and automatically restart your VPN connection.

VPN Server Search

Click the VPN server dropdown list and type in the name or country for your preferred servers to quickly find your desired location.

Global Kill Switch

Worried about IP Address and DNS leaking? Check The Global Kill Switch and the FlashRouter will block Internet access if the VPN connection is inactive. If you ever disconnect or lose connection to your VPN service, the Global Kill Switch will make sure that your ISP IP address does not leak. Checking the box will instantly activate Kill Switch on your FlashRouter.

More FR Privacy App Features

  • Mobile Optimized UI for Setup/Changing Options.
  • Connection Failure Notifications
  • Built-in IP Address Checker & Security Icon
  • OpenVPN Connection Troubleshooting Logs - Copy or Download buttons
  • Setup VPN Rules by Host or Websites (does not apply to streaming services).
  • Simple VPN Connection with Easy Reconnect
  • New VPN User Signup Button.
  • Full DD-WRT Settings/Features Accessible.
  • Optional Cert and Key Fields for VPN providers with additional requirements
  • Works with PPPoE

FlashRouter Privacy App Benefit Details

Instant VPN Support for All Connected Devices

Instead of setting up your VPN on one device at a time with different instructions for each device, you only need to setup VPN once.

Certain devices like streaming players, gaming systems, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices do not have native support for VPN client connections. These devices need security too, and with the FR Privacy App all devices that connect to your home network can now connect through your VPN service.

No More Device VPN Connection Limits

If your VPN provider limits the number of simultaneous connections to their service, you can use just 1 connection for a FlashRouter to cover ALL devices in your home with no device connection limit.

VPN On/Off Device Connection Management

By device management in the FR App Options tab to easily enable or disable VPN on any network device with the click of a button.

Advanced VPN Server Sorting By Load/Proximity

Instead of listing all servers in alphabetical order, we can create additional sorts for By Country views where users can select the least loaded or server closest to them geographically. This helps VPN providers to properly distribute the bandwidth load in real time across servers. (*For Select Participating VPN Providers)

Automatic VPN Server Updates

Get the latest server options and list within the FlashRouters Router Privacy App.(For Select Participating VPN Providers)

Mobile Optimized UI for Setup/Changing Options

App user interface is optimized to be viewed via mobile without need for a separate mobile app install.

Simple VPN Connection with Easy Reconnect

Once you establish a VPN connection within the FR App, select any other server from the dropdown list and click Reconnect to quickly update your location. No need to make any manual settings changes.

Auto Connect to VPN on Startup

Easy-to-use toggle setting that tells the FR App to start up the VPN network connection as soon as the router connects to the Internet.

Optional Cert and Key

If public certs and private keys are required for user or server authentication, then extra boxes will automatically appear on the main VPN connection page for users to input accordingly.

    I recently purchased a Flashrouters Netgear Nighthawk router set up for PIA. I took it out of the box and it connected immediately after I plugged it in. The setup was fairly easy with the supplied directions. I am very happy with my purchase. It does exactly what it is supposed to do. I doubt that there is any way to have a more secure internet connection. And it was painless. I highly recommend FlashRouters and the Netgear Nighthawk router they sell.

    Flashrouters are awesome / The support is always there if you have any problems. I wanted to state that first.

    The router is a upgrade and as I have latest apple products having a 5Ghz router is awesome. You can have dual bands running at same time, has large memory and USB 3.0 ... its on steroids! The bonus you can run DD-WRT as well , plus VPN so giving you a very cheap professional style router!

    I can say with no hesitation that the Netgear Nighthawk R7000 is the best router around. Lightning fast speeds, amazing range, and the DD-WRT firmware makes it all the more manageable. I use PureVPN, and using the service on all my devices (Roku, PS3, etc) is great. FlashRouters offered very helpful support, patience, and speedy delivery.

    Absolutely amazing. I have been a Netgear user for years, but this router, with a super 1 GHz processor, Wireless-AC, and high powered antennas is certainly the cream of the crop. FlashRouters is a fantastic service, and I will definitely be recommending it to all of my fellow tech aficionados.

    After a few weeks of using my Nighthawk flashed with HideMyAss, I must say this is definitely the best router on the market. Amazing range and a stable connection to my ISP. Not only is my Internet more stable, it's safer too, with these added added layers of encryption.

    Wow, I cannot believe this router. To be honest, I was a little unsure of the price, but honestly, it was worth it. I have never seen such high speeds! Perfect streaming quality too. I live in the UK at the moment, and I have an AppleTV, several iPads, etc... the Nighthawk provides me with excellent streaming quality for all of these! You will not be disappointed.

  12. Best router available. Great VPN results review by Ana on 3/7/2014

    Support

    This router is great! I am running astrill open vpn client and it works great. The fast processor is great for encrypting and decrypting vpn traffic with no slowdowns. You can easily oc the processor to 1200mhz with a simple command via the dd=wrt firmware. The Kong Firmware is very stable and the overall signal strength on 2.4 and 5 ghz bands is excellent. This is the best performing high end consumer router on the market. FYI, Tomato firmware is under development as well, so the options for this router keep getting better and better!. You wont be disappointed with the Nighthawk!
