The Tomato Nighthawk Has Arrived...
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.
Dual Gateway (VPN & Non-VPN Networks on the Same Router)
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.
Major Processor Upgrade
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.
High Powered External Antennas
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.
