Want better quality Netflix, Amazon Instant, Hulu, Crackle, or Vudu streaming on your 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 Tomato 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 latest of our Netgear Wireless-AC Tomato Routers (reminiscent of a tank suitable for Batman himself) prepares your network for all of the latest devices while still offering full support for legacy devices (Wireless-G) and providing top-level dual band Wireless-N speeds.
Adding Tomato firmware allows for VPN service integration with PPTP and OpenVPN for almost any VPN provider.
Looking to put your Tomato router in two virtual locations at once? Pick and choose which devices in your home you would like to have sent through the router VPN connection with ease. If you want a device to bypass the VPN connection, this can now be done from within the Tomato firmware settings.
Additionally, with new Tomato ARM builds, you can set specific websites to go through VPN, while all other websites you may visit will connect through your local ISP IP address. For example, if you would like Netflix.com to go through VPN while accessing all other sites through your local ISP, with new Tomato builds, you can simply make a list of websites to tunnel through VPN and click Save.
The R7000 model bumps the internal processor to a Tomato best-in-class Dual Core 1 GHz (1000 MHz) Broadcom CPU , besting even our other top-end devices, which run on an admittedly excellent 600 MHz. In fact, this is the most popular dual core router we are offering with Tomato 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 perform in the process. The better the processor, the faster the VPN encrypted information can get to you.
The Netgear Nighthawk R7000 integrates three high-powered external antennas for maximum wireless reach and performance. Since they are external, the antennae are easily upgradable to even more powerful antennas for extended reach, if you so desire.

My level of computer knowledge is pretty much Computer skills 101. I do however know how vulnerable wireless networks can be, and wanted to protect my home network as much as possible. I began to research VPNs, and decided the best choice for me was a VPN capable router. I found my options for obtaining a VPN router to be that I could attempt to change the firmware myself(which would probably result in me bricking my router) or to order one from a company who specializes in loading new firmware on a router for me. I found flashrouters.com, and was able to order a NetGear R7000 Nighthawk with customized VPN firmware for the provider I had already selected. My order was placed on a Monday evening after hours, and was shipped out on Tuesday. Less than 24 hours after I had submitted my order! I paid for FedEx 2 day service(because I’m wanted the router ASAP) and it was at my door on Thursday morning! The router was all set up for me! All I had to do was access my router and enter the VPN username and password for my account. It was that easy! I would highly recommend this company for purchasing a VPN router. Prompt service, and a stress free painless way to get one for a low level computer knowledge guy like me. Thanks again!
I recently bought the Netgear Nighthawk R7000 AC1900 Tomato Flash Router because I wanted to stop the internet spying & gathering of information on my spending habits. At first I was hesitant on buying a 2nd router. The cost and hassle of setting up a Virtual Private Network (VPN) is intimidating and I had to really give it some thought. So after reading the information on www.flashrouters.com
I discovered it wasn’t hard at all. In fact, set up was done before the router was even shipped to me! How great is that?! The guys were very customer service friendly and answered all my email questions before I even bought the router. Setup came with great directions and the setup time was under 1 hour. I’m very pleased with Flash Routers and there outstanding company in New Jersey!
I would recommend them to anyone looking for some Internet privacy!
Well I was very sceptical that what was said could be done, but they are great in everyway,
Thank you very much. Great products, great support , I am sorted.
Thank you again
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.
