The Netgear R6300 Wireless-AC DD-WRT FlashRouter

Netgear R6300 Wireless-AC DD-WRT FlashRouter

Once again, FlashRouters has bolstered our popular router lineup with a lightning-quick Wireless-AC DD-WRT router. Rejoice!

Ever since we added our first DD-WRT Wireless-AC router and our first Tomato Wireless-AC router, Wireless-AC DD-WRT devices have been flying off of the shelves. It would seem people simply can’t get enough of Wireless-AC’s peerless speed ( up to 1750 Mbps vs 600-900 for the best Wireless-N devices).

Up until now, our only Wireless-AC routers have come from Asus. Well, now we have a  Netgear Wireless-AC router to keep them company. Prepare to meet the Netgear R6300 V1 AC1750 Wireless-AC DD-WRT FlashRouter!

Netgear R6300 Specs

Leaving aside the tremendous wireless speeds featured by integrating Wireless-AC, the Netgear R6300 is truly something to behold.

Netgear has filled this stylish WiFi beast with the best processor we currently offer, a robust 600 MHz Broadcom processor for handling the increasing demands of WiFi users. The embedded 128 MB RAM/128 MB flash memory, are by far the largest amount of flash memory (the next closest is 32 MB) we have been able to offer on a DD-WRT router. Flash memory size is important for installing superior high-end versions of DD-WRT while leaving ample room for advanced packages and setups.

For VPN users looking for optimal speeds, the better the processor, RAM & Flash the better overall performance capabilities when encrypting and decryption data and streaming video from all across the world.

And don’t forget the basics of any high-performance network centerpiece,  the Netgear R6300 includes four gigabit ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and six internal antennas.

But it’s in the Wireless-AC where the Netgear R6300 really makes its name. This dual-band beauty is capable of running two concurrent signals at 450 Mbps on the 2.4 Ghz with 1300 Mbps on the 5 GHz (the clear HD streaming band).

Future-proof your network today with the Netgear R6300 Wireless-AC router; you’ll be glad you did when all those demanding new holiday gadgets and gifts start getting on to your wireless network.

DD-WRT Router Firmware Benefits

DD-WRT Firmware

DD-WRT Firmware

If we had just provided you with a Netgear R6300 and left it alone, you’d have a superb router on your hands. But why do that when we can super-charge the Netgear R6300 with DD-WRT firmware?

DD-WRT is a replacement firmware designed to expand the functionality of any router it graces. Adding this firmware to a router allows the user to access advanced security options, control their bandwidth allocation, and even extend their wireless range.

What’s more, a DD-WRT router is compatible with PPTP, OpenVPN, & L2TP VPN integration, thus providing users with a more manageable VPN experience. Presumably, one subscribes to a VPN to secure their online information, access regionally restricted material, and generally simplify his or her life, so why not pick a router with firmware that will make your VPN that much easier to access or use?

DD-WRT is truly a marvel, and to illustrate our point, we’re going to give you a partial list of its benefits of DD-WRT on a Netgear R6300:

And again, that’s a partial list! Suffice to say, DD-WRT has the power to turn ordinary routers into great routers, and great routers into extraordinary ones. It’s no wonder we flash so many of our routers with this powerful replacement firmware.

The FlashRouters Advantage

A FlashRouters open-source firmware expert flashes and tests every router one-by-one before it is shipped in order to ensure the complete satisfaction of our customers.

postheadericon Jean Coutu Group chooses Microsoft Dynamics for Retail to streamline operations

REDMOND, Wash. Nov . 21 , 2013 The Jean Coutu Group Inc. (PJC), one of the most trusted names in Canadian pharmacy retailing, has selected Microsoft Dynamics for Retail to manage all its retail operations, from its headquarters down to the point of sale (POS) devices in stores. The company chose Microsoft Dynamics for its familiarity, flexible architecture that enables easy integration and simplicity that gives people a RoleTailored experience, which is an element of the solution that surfaces relevant information based on the user’s role. PJC will deploy Microsoft Dynamics to more than 400 stores, 3,000 POS systems and 11,500 devices with implementation to start in 2014.

“We knew we wanted a system that we could scale for future growth and gave people across the company the information they need to do their jobs. Microsoft Dynamics provides that flexibility along with an easy, familiar interface,” said Alain Boudreault, vice president and chief information officer, Jean Coutu Group. “This will help us better serve our customers now and in the future.”

PJC employs more than 19,000 people and operates a network of more than 400 franchised stores in the Canadian provinces of Québec, New Brunswick and Ontario under the banners of PJC Jean Coutu, PJC Clinique, PJC Santé and PJC Santé Beauté. Besides running these retail operations, PJC also responds to the needs of its franchise network by providing an array of technical and professional support services, as well as the supply, warehousing and delivery of products.

PJC needed a new, integrated system to manage its retail operation because its current system was reaching the end of its life. The company was looking for one solution to cover the whole spectrum of retail operations. As the selection process began, PJC managers discovered that one solution for all their needs was nearly impossible to find, and they decided to consider two solutions: one for the retail headquarters and store management, and one for the POS. However, after they found that Microsoft Dynamics for Retail would meet all of PJC’s needs in one solution, the decision became very simple.

“The fact that Microsoft is providing us with an end-to-end solution makes it so much easier to envision our future technology plans and the future of our retail business,” Boudreault said. “We are also considering deploying Windows tablets as part of our overall mobile POS strategy and are excited at the potential Microsoft can bring to PJC.”

More information about how organizations are turning to Microsoft technology is available on the Microsoft Customer Spotlight newsroom.

Founded in 1975, Microsoft (Nasdaq “MSFT”) is the worldwide leader in software, services and solutions that help people and businesses realize their full potential.
