Meet the best DD-WRT routers for Wii U

Best DD-WRT Routers for Wii U

While the Playstation 4 and Xbox One are the neck-and-neck heavyweights in the world of gaming consoles, the Wii U is relegated to the role of scrappy underdog. That’s unfortunate, because the Wii U has a lot to offer.

We’re not going to do a better job explaining all of the perks of the Wii U than this Forbes article from last December but, distill the article to its essence, Wii U is cheaper than its competitors, offers plenty of exclusives on the latest versions of classic games (Mario Kart 8Super Smash Bros. for Wii UDonkey Kong Country, to name just a few), is backwards compatible with all other Wii games, and is perfect for interactive gaming both online and in the home.

Also, The Legend of Zelda Wii U looks absolutely breathtaking, and we can’t wait to get lost in it.

And, as with any modern gaming console worth its salt, you’re going to want a powerful DD-WRT router to support you through it. Allow us to explain:

The Benefits of DD-WRT for Wii U

We know we wouldn’t be shocking you by saying that online gaming is a surefire way to eat up a lot of your bandwidth. So if you’re going to be demanding a lot of your wireless network with interactive gaming, you’re going to need a router powerful enough to handle heavy-duty tasks.

And with DD-WRT in your corner, your Wii U will work like a dream. No longer will your Mario Kart 8 experience be hampered by frustrating stalls and freezes. It’ll be smooth sailing on Rainbow Road.

Now, we understand that there are those of you out there who really know your stuff and would like to know more about the advanced options open to Wii U users with DD-WRT routers. You should know that DD-WRT has integrated VPN connectivity for region restricted gaming, UPnP (Universal Plug and Play), advanced NAT controls, among many other tweaks that you could utilize to improve your gaming experience.

As the brief video above explains (seriously, it’s quite brief, so give it a look), the purpose of a FlashRouter is to provide you with a wireless network that can handle any amount of traffic, that is secure and protected, and that is versatile enough to outshine any new router that comes out.

That’s why we flash our routers with DD-WRT. A DD-WRT-flashed router is a router with extendable wireless range, advanced security features, and bandwidth that you can control, allowing you to prioritize high-volume activities like gaming.

With the FlashRouters line, there’s not a bum choice in the lot, but we’ve gone to the trouble of whittling down a list of our absolute favorites for Wii U gaming. If you’d like to check out a few more, you can always take a look at our favorite all-purpose DD-WRT routers of 2015.
