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!
Using DD-WRT firmware can make a wireless & wired network infinitely more stable and easier to tweak.
Upgrading the R8000 to DDWRT integrates advanced network security options including VPN connectivity. Using a 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.
Manually setting up a VPN service on a router has always been notoriously complicated, frustrating and unnecessarily confusing…. until NOW!
Introducing the FlashRouters Router Privacy App - the simple browser-based solution to connect a VPN service on a router. Just a couple clicks and secure your entire home network.
Developed by the DD-WRT & VPN experts at FlashRouters, the FlashRouters Router Privacy App integrates support for most top VPN services.
The FlashRouters Privacy App works just like an app for Android, Windows or Apple iOS except it’s located on your router. And there is no separate app to install.
However, when you connect to VPN with the FR App, it is not just your computer that you are securing, instead you are securing every device in your home at once. Simply enter your VPN login information, search for your preferred VPN server location, and click Connect to get started.
In many cases you may not want your entire home network to tunnel through your router VPN connection, and so we have also built enhanced VPN management options in the FR Privacy App.
Choose to start the router VPN connection as soon as you connect to the Internet. Reboot your router at any time and automatically restart your VPN connection.
Click the VPN server dropdown list and type in the name or country for your preferred servers to quickly find your desired location.
Worried about IP Address and DNS leaking? Check The Global Kill Switch and the FlashRouter will block Internet access if the VPN connection is inactive. If you ever disconnect or lose connection to your VPN service, the Global Kill Switch will make sure that your ISP IP address does not leak. Checking the box will instantly activate Kill Switch on your FlashRouter.
Instead of setting up your VPN on one device at a time with different instructions for each device, you only need to setup VPN once.
Certain devices like streaming players, gaming systems, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices do not have native support for VPN client connections. These devices need security too, and with the FR Privacy App all devices that connect to your home network can now connect through your VPN service.
If your VPN provider limits the number of simultaneous connections to their service, you can use just 1 connection for a FlashRouter to cover ALL devices in your home with no device connection limit.
By device management in the FR App Options tab to easily enable or disable VPN on any network device with the click of a button.
Instead of listing all servers in alphabetical order, we can create additional sorts for By Country views where users can select the least loaded or server closest to them geographically. This helps VPN providers to properly distribute the bandwidth load in real time across servers. (*For Select Participating VPN Providers)
Get the latest server options and list within the FlashRouters Router Privacy App.(For Select Participating VPN Providers)
App user interface is optimized to be viewed via mobile without need for a separate mobile app install.
Once you establish a VPN connection within the FR App, select any other server from the dropdown list and click Reconnect to quickly update your location. No need to make any manual settings changes.
Easy-to-use toggle setting that tells the FR App to start up the VPN network connection as soon as the router connects to the Internet.
If public certs and private keys are required for user or server authentication, then extra boxes will automatically appear on the main VPN connection page for users to input accordingly.

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.
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.
I am elated and excited about what FlashRouters is offering and has been doing over the years, and a quick shoutout GREAT JOB GUYS!
Router arrived pre-configured as requested...Customer service and tech support is awesome and speedy!!! Thanks guys, your doing a fine job!!
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
