Linksys E2500, welcome to the team. We’re glad to have you as our top economy-priced dual band device for users looking for a all-around router upgrade at an economical price.

The Linksys E2500 Tomato FlashRouter offers high-end N600 wireless speed capacity (300 2.4 GHz & 300 5 Ghz), utilizing 4 internal antennas. Combine that with the Tomato-added perk of being able to manually manage wireless transmission power, control access restrictions, an always on protective firewall, a bevy of graphing, logs and monitoring features, itt’s not hard to see why the E2500 is becoming a go-to purchase for those looking for a Tomato router priced around $100.

Since DD-WRT firmware doesn’t play as nice with some Linksys models in our testing, the Linksys E2500 gets the upgrade to the increasingly popular Tomato firmware fully tested by our networking experts.

While the E2500 does not have all the bells and whistles of some the high-end devices (USB or Gigabit ports), the E2500 is an optimal choice for users looking for the improved streaming HD quality that you get when you upgrade to a Wireless-N Dual Band device from old and outdated routers. Who doesn’t want better quality Netflix, Amazon Instant, Crackle, or Vudu with their Roku, AppleTV, & Boxee Box?

FlashRouter Easy Setup

A FlashRouter offers what may be the easiest router setup you’ll ever experience. No CDs, installations, or questions that you don’t want to answer.

Users for Linksys E2500 Tomato can expect:

  • Superior Network Stability: No more restarting your router every day just to get it working.

  • Basic Dual Band Coverage: Better quality audio and HD video streaming.

  • Improved Router Interface and Navigation.

  • VPN Service Integration: OpenVPN, PPTP, or L2TP. (See VPN Tab for more info).

  • Advanced QoS: Define 10 unique QoS classes. Real-time pie graph display of prioritized traffic with class drilldown details.

  • DynamicDNS Integration.

  • Integrated Wireless Survey Page: View conflicting wireless networks in your area to tweak your network accordingly.

  • Wireless coverage of up to 200 feet (depending on interference & home/office construction materials).

  3. GOOD SERVICE IS GOOD BUSINESS review by Lawrence G. on 9/21/2016

    I’ve been using my Linksys E2500 N600 Tomato VPN router few months now and just want to let everyone how pleased I am with it.

    I also want to let everyone know how much I appreciated the help and understanding I received from the Order Department (in particular Rebecca) when I goofed up my initial order and then from Tom M. in the Support Department when I needed to get up and running or with some technical issues that were way above my personal skills.

    To all at FlsahRouters - PLEASE remember an old saying that I heard a while ago: - “GOOD SERVICE IS GOOD BUSINESS”. I believe most people like me appreciate it when we experience it.

    Working with FlashRouters has been a pleasure. I ordered the router on a Tuesday and arrived at my house mid-day Thursday, pre-configured for IVPN! This router is a bit expensive, but I feel it's worth the price. Definitely a lifesaver.

  5. Very happy with the e2500 (PIA with OpenVpn) review by Mick on 8/14/2014

    Support

    Technical support was great before my purchase. They gave me good advice according to my needs. I ordered the router from Canada and I received it 4 days later. I found the install process easy because they sent me detailed paper instructions. The CPU in the e2500 (v2) is only 300mhz but that does not seem to affect the download speed when OpenVPN is installed on the router with BF-CFB 128 bit algo (the only one that seems to work with OpenVPN runned from the router with PIA). I use a 6mbps/1mbps (down/up) DSL connection though. Overall, very satisfied and would buy again. Thanks !

  6. The Answer To Many Of My Problems review by Vernon on 7/21/2014

    Support

    Being someone who takes their privacy fairly seriously, I tried to flash my previous Cisco Linksys router with updated firmware. The result was a failure, and I ended up bricking my router. After some research, I discovered FlashRouters, who not only offered routers pre-flashed with firmware, but routers that can be pre-configured for various VPN services. FlashRouters has provided the answer to many of my problems, and their service is something I definitely recommend.

    A great price for a great router! FlashRouters offered helpful support, fast shipping, and a generous attitude. I would recommend their service to anyone looking to increase the power of their router setup.

  8. A Great WiFi Solution review by David on 5/5/2014

    Support

    Using a router flashed for Tomato is definitely something I would suggest to others. A very easy interface for a firmware that enables me to get the most out of my VPN connections for that extra added layer of security. FlashRouters have been very nice throughout the whole process, and offered great support with some minor issues I had on my own end concerning setting up the router.

  9. Wonderful Router review by Winston on 4/28/2014

    I have recently moved to the Philippines and I love it here, but I do miss my US television haha. FlashRouters provided me with the key to accessing US Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube via the DD-WRT firmware for this router. Extremely helpful and very recommended.
