Want better quality Netflix, Amazon Instant, Hulu, Crackle, or Vudu streaming with a Roku, AppleTV, & Boxee Box? 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 Nighthawk R7000 integrates three high-powered external antennas for maximum wireless reach and performance. Since they are external, they are easily upgradable to even more powerful antennas for extended reach if you so desire.
The R7000 model bumps the internal processor to a DD-WRT best-in-class Dual Core 1 GHz (1000 MHz) Broadcom CPU, besting even our other top-end devices, which run from an excellent 600 MHz. In fact, this is the most popular dual core router we are offering 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, 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.

Using DD-WRT firmware can make a network infinitely more stable and easier to tweak.

Upgrading the R7000 to DD-WRT integrations advanced network security options including VPN connectivity. Using VPN on a router allows you to create a secure tunnel for connected devices just by connecting to the router, giving you an additional layer of encryption & personal privacy from prying government eyes, and allowing you to mask your location for additional security.

Use these 2 integrated USB port to attach a backup storage device, Network Attached Storage (NAS) backup, or to create a network printer.

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.
Despite some customs delays arriving in Vietnam, this Netgear R7000 router works like a charm on SecurityKiss L2TP.
I'm finally happy with my Internet connection. I let this thing pitter patter in and out for years, using a crummy router with my Xbox. No wonder I was constantly losing in Halo. The lag!!! Now, I am Master Chief! Haha. The Nighthawk. Perfect.
I give this router the highest possible rating. Be it 10 out of 10 points, 5 out of 5 stars, this router stands at the top with any test. A simple setup, fantastic VPN use, and amazing speeds. There is no substitute for the Nighthawk. If you don't have one, get one now.
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.
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!
