NOTE: If you plan to use the Netgear R8000 FlashRouter outside of the USA then you must add on the international power supply for 100-240V worldwide power compatibility.

When it comes to open-source firmware routers, the Netgear R8000 Nighthawk X6 AC3200 DD-WRT is the ultimate networking centerpiece. With power and style to burn, this router offers maximum performance in the present while future-proofing your WiFi setup, allowing for the growing demands of wireless devices. The latest of our Netgear Wireless-AC DD-WRT Routers revamps your networking options, controls, and capabilities for any gadget, while still offering full support for legacy devices (Wireless-N & Wireless-G).

With six external antennas, the R8000 offers three dedicated WiFi bands at lightning fast AC3200 speeds. The Tri-Band (or triple band) Gigabit Wireless provides capability for instantly creating 3 segmented networks. One single band N600 for the 2.4 GHz, and 2 1300 Mbps 5 GHz networks that are AC compatible. For all intents and purposes, using the R8000 is equivalent to utilizing 3 high-end routers.

Netgear R8000 DD-WRT Upgrade

The R8000 FlashRouter is the premiere choice for users who want top-notch, high-definition video streaming quality for your favorite services: Netflix USA, Amazon Instant Video, BBC iPlayer, WatchESPN, and Hulu, among others.

Tired of video buffering? Choose premium router hardware supplanted by a hand-crafted firmware upgrade that offers the stability, improved security, and customizability of the open source DD-WRT Linux kernel!

  • Network-wide ad-blocking capabilities using Privoxy.
  • Bandwidth Monitoring & Access Restrictions.

  1. Top Ranking Device review by Aidan on 9/1/2016

    Quality

    Long time customer of flashrouters. The routers keep getting better and better. This is the most expense i've purchased. It's also the best.

  2. Can't Support Gigabit WAN throughput to LAN with PPPoE review by Bagoette on 5/18/2016
    Support
    Quality

    I see everyone talking about how amazing this router is, and I would have agreed with you 2 days ago.

    I recently upgraded from Comcast 175mbps/20mbps Dn/Up to CenteryLink Fiber 1gbps symmetric and since CenturyLink uses PPPoE to authenticate on their network, for some reason this disables the R8000's hardware acceleration, causing a max bandwidth from speedtest.net to be no higher than 350mbps Up/Dn. I don't know if this is a hardware or a firmware thing.

    Needless to say, I am now very disappointed that my $349 router can't give me the 900+Mbps that the stock C2100T $99 router from CL can.

  5. So Far, So Great! review by Todd on 8/11/2015
    Quality
    Support

    I bought the R8000. I just moved into a rather large house and this seemed to be a great solution to covering as much of it with fast Mbps goodness.

    The router has been great (so far). I had a brief issue when tweaking its settings and Flashrouters support was quick to respond: friendly and solution-oriented.

    It was easy to get rolling with my VPN service (Private Internet Access) as well as fine-tuning DD-WRT by making use of Policy Based Routing.

    I'm quite happy with my purchase. The R8000 is fast! If I need another router in the future, I'll be heading back to Flashrouters.

  6. Great router review by David on 5/8/2015
    Quality
    Support

    This router will not disappoint - it's fast - it's powerful, it's a beast. The range is excellent and with dd-wrt you will have options for configuring VPN, guest networking, radio configuration, etc that will not disappoint. I've even been able to add custom scripts that allow me to monitor and track usage of my bandwidth across computers in my house and with guests when they're visiting.

    Tom, Jake and the rest of the FlashRouters team are outstanding, too. I've had multiple conversations with them and they're great guys. Their support is worth every penny.

    Earlier versions of the firmware that had issues have been turned resolved and the most recent updates have proven to be rock solid with the R8000.

    Worth every penny.

  7. Worth The Price review by Jeff C. on 4/24/2015

    Yes, this is a costly device. However, I can assure you, this router is certainly worth the price. The Tri-Band WiFi is amazing, having three VPN networks coming from one router in my house is really a dream. The VPN performance has been stellar too. I am really satisfied with this router.

  8. Amazing review by Alber E. on 3/13/2015

    An amazing router, simply put. The range is the best I have ever seen, with a high-powered processor that allows for a very steady connection to my VPN. The router also arrived pre-configured for my VPN, which was incredibly helpful. FlashRouters has been nothing but beneficial.

    The perfect router for a big home with a lot of kids, a lot of electronic gadgets, and a lot of monitoring needed. This router has it all. I love it! The three networks work like a dream, and the range is incredible. Tom from Support was very helpful, getting this device to work with my setup in no time. Awesome!

    I can safely say that the Netgear R8000 is the best purchase I have made in a long time. A supreme connection to my VPN, three awesome networks, and a massive range. This is a powerful device, no kidding. If you want the best of the best, accept no substitute. FlashRouters has made my life a hell of a lot easier.

    The R8000 looks like an alien spaceship sitting on my desk. And let me tell you this... the performance is out of this world! Especially with DD-WRT. FlashRouters really hit it out of the park with this one. The sales chat was patient and helpful, and the Support Team solved all of my issues with speedy precision. The Tri-Band capabilities have stunned me... three VPN networks is a dream. I love it. The #1 networking monster!!!
