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.
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.

I debated for two days buyng and flashing vs going this way, finally pulled the trigger with flashrouters to save my time and make things simpler. It was the best move I could have made, the linksys 1900ACS came within days, the setup could not have been simpler. Using the provided guide it was literally a .. b .. c ..I was up and running on the new router in two hours after opening the box, and had completely finished all configuration within 4 hours. Many thanks to the team here.
All I have to say is this is a great router! I have been in the market for a powerful router for a few years, but the task of actually flashing the thing seemed a bit... well... daunting. FlashRouters gets the job done!
This is a great router from a great company. I have been using Buffered VPN for several years, but I could not watch US shows on my AppleTV, living out here in Mexico. FlashRouters offered a solution, and a great one at that!
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.
