The Asus RT-AC56U is the latest addition to our line of powerful DD-WRT firmware-upgraded devices. Now you can purchase a brand new Asus FlashRouter VPN solution with blazing fast AC wireless speed and customized open source firmware installation at an amazing price.
A new and improved version of the Asus RT-N56U - its highly popular predecessor - the AC56U takes that design and ramps it up to next gen wireless capabilities with the addition of 802.11ac.
Adding DD-WRT also allows for VPN service integration with PPTP for just about any provider as well as OpenVPN for select providers.
Also included with the AC56U is a supercharged 800 MHz Broadcom processor, one of the best Asus router processors 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, a large processor is an imperative component, as it makes the constant encryption and decryption the router will need to perform in the process go that much quicker. The better the processor, the faster the VPN encrypted information can get to you.
At FlashRouters, we take our time choosing our routers, finding the best performing models with the best possible specs. This way, you get the perfect device for your network as it grows and becomes increasingly reliant on a powerful Internet gateway to manage everything you throw at it.
The Asus RT-AC56U DD-WRT FlashRouter offers wireless speeds of up to 1200 Mbps (300 @ 2.4 GHz & 867 @ 5 Ghz), utilizing 4 internal high efficiency antennas.
Want better quality streaming from Netflix, Amazon Instant, PBS Kids, Crackle, and HBO Go? We can do that.

I love Jake. This is what I wanted and expected. I run a business too. You got it sorted and you deserve the credit. Awesome! Thank you. Perfection.
Overall I'm very happy with this purchase. I know my way around computers a little bit, but never was very good with networking and programming routers. I received my router the next day when I made my on-line order. It took me a whole 5 minutes to get the router up and running. It works well with my internet providers DSL router. I'm using IPvanish and I love how easy it is to change the IP address. The only negative thing about the router is the wireless connection, the range is okay but not the greatest. However the wireless speed is very fast.
The Asus RT-AC56U FlashRouter is a perfect device. Affordable, packed with awesome features and capabilities, and fantastic support to boot. I had some questions before putting this router into my setup, and the FlashRouters team was more than helpful in their answering. I definitely recommend using a FlashRouter.
This router is a networking wonder at an affordable price. Packing an 800 MHz processor, this router offers the speed and performance of a beastly router within a price range I can afford. FlashRouters has made my streaming life much much easier.
The Asus RT-AC56U is affordable and brilliant. For a router under $200, the add-ons of Wireless-AC, an 800 MHz processor, DD-WRT and VPN capabilities make for an offer that almost seems too good to be true, but it isn't. I have been pleasantly surprised with my FlashRouters experience. I recommend this process.
For a long time, I have had issues with suspicious activity on my WiFi network. I have tried various methods to protect my network, none of which provided me with the level of security I am looking for. Using a DD-WRT router with a VPN has been a very successful method for creating a safe and encrypted network. The router performs very well, and I am able to sleep much better at night knowing my data is protected.
FlashRouters provides fantastic routers with a very easy setup. I am not a fan of the Asus firmware that routers like the AC56U come out of the box with. Buying this router from FlashRouters, I am able to use the fantastic DD-WRT firmware to integrate my HideMyAss VPN account. In itself, this is a life saver, as I can finally use HMA on my Roku. The router itself is also an amazing device, with Dual Band Wireless-AC and a powerful processor!
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.
