Warranty & Returns

FlashRouter configuration specialists install open-source firmware on all routers. By replacing factory firmware with open-source firmware, manufacturers will no longer honor their product warranty.

We are confident that every router sold will function as advertised; as we do open, inspect, upgrade, configure, and then test all FlashRouters before they get shipped out. That is why we guarantee you will receive a working unit and offer our own 1-year hardware warranty included with all DD-WRT or Tomato routers purchased from the FlashRouters website.

If you would like to extend your warranty coverage period to 2 years the option is available when adding any FlashRouter to your shopping cart. We are also happy to offer a wide range of refurbished routers to provide customers with additional savings opportunities. All warranties and upgrade options available for brand new routers apply equally to our line of refurbished routers.

Since we are so certain you will be happy with your upgraded and super secure network, all routers purchased from also come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee.

Please read the warranty and return section in detail before placing an order or returning an order. Our goal is to make the return process as smooth and transparent as possible for all customers. If the router you purchased does not work out for your needs we still want you to be satisfied with your purchasing experience.

FlashRouters Warranty and Return Details:

Hardware Guarantee:

  • Every FlashRouter is configured and a screenshot of a working router is taken for verification immediately before shipment. There is therefore almost no chance you will receive a router that does not work. In the rare case you receive a router that does not power on we will work to rectify the situation immediately.

  • If it is determined the power supply you received was faulty, and not the router itself, our team will immediately ship you out a tested power supply at no additional cost.

  • If router gremlins (yes they do exist) snuck into your router during the shipping process and it no longer powers on, our team will supply you with a prepaid shipping label to return the unit back to our offices. As soon as we receive verified tracking on your return shipment we will ship out another thoroughly tested unit to you at no additional cost.

  • You must contact the FlashRouters support team at within 7 days from the date you received your router in order to be eligible for free return shipping.

  • Note for international customers: We do not provide free return shipping labels for international customers but can offer a $20 credit for return shipping if you received a faulty router unit. As soon as we receive verified return shipment tracking we will then ship out your replacement unit. Rest assured that we individually test and inspect every FlashRouter with great detail before shipment.


30-day Satisfaction Guarantee:

  • If you are not satisfied with the performance of your router our support team is always there to help optimize your setup.

What is not covered with a FlashRouter Warranty?

  • Items that have been clearly damaged either by the customer or during the return process are not eligible for a full refund. This includes any dents scratches, or moving part inside the router.

  • If wireless signal speeds are not as fast as you had hoped, we have a variety of solutions available to optimize your wireless network speed and performance. However, due the variety of external factors contributing to wireless speeds, such as your ISP’s provided bandwidth, the size of your home or office, and the thickness of the walls in your home or office, returns for this reason will only be accepted under the 30-day satisfaction guarantee.

  • If your configured VPN connection speeds are slow, we offer a variety of solutions and will work with you to find the best VPN provider and settings for your network. However, VPN speeds are very reliant on the VPN service and protocols you are using. We cannot guarantee the speed of VPN. If you are connected with a VPN provider through your FlashRouter and you have a specific speed related issue, returns for this reason will only be accepted under the 30-day satisfaction guarantee.

  • Routers that have been “flashed” and configured by our support specialists for anyone who has purchased a FlashRouters Basic or Premium Support Plan are not eligible for any warranty coverage from FlashRouters. Only routers purchased through the website are eligible for Warranty replacements or refunds.
