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 WRT1900ACS 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 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.
Dual Router Setup Ready: In the dual router setup, one router is connected to your local Internet Service Provider and the WRT1900AC can be used as a dedicated VPN router.
Can I Use the WRT1900ACS DD-WRT as a VPN Router Right Out of the Box?
If you enter in your username, password, and preferred IP location for your VPN provider 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.
