Wireless-AC Compared to Wireless-N

Haven’t upgraded your router in 2 years or more? It is more than likely that this fact alone can be hindering your entire network performance.  The list of things that hammer your router and require performance increases everyday.

Most likely you have heard the terms Wireless-N & Wireless-G. Wireless-AC is the latest wireless draft for exponential signal capacity in WiFi market. Where Wireless-G tops out at 54 Mbps and Wireless N ranges from 450-900 Mbps, AC can more than doubles the top end capabilities of Wireless-N.

Now that Apple has cracked the seal across their entire product line with Wireless-AC, most new gadgets shipped during the rest of 2014 holiday season will want to keep up by integrating the Wireless-AC Gigabit Wireless capability a standard. Make sure your 

Combine that power with the DD-WRT added perks of being able to manage wireless transmission power, block ads with Privoxy, embedded OpenVPN & PPTP integration, manage access restrictions, a built-in SPI firewall, a bevy of graphing, logs and monitoring features.

Here’s a handy chart that shows the difference between our lowest economy and mid range Wireless-N models versus some popular Wireless-AC options.

So for example comparing our economy Wireless-N E1200 to the R7000, the Nighthawk offers more than three times the processing power, integrates high speed networked transfers and sharing, more than 6x the wireless speed capability and has a significant range advantage for more users with its external antennas.So make sure your old ratty router doesn’t effect the performance of your newly (or soon to be received) high-tech gear from Apple TV, Roku, SmartTV, Nest Thermostat, VOIP, Sonos Music System and many more.

Not only will you be getting a networking revamping tool for now and the future but you will be getting it with our biggest discounts we’ve ever offered on most of these models.

Wondering what the importance of these mumbo jumbo specifications? We’ll break it down for you and why certain specifications are important.

Processor

Processing is the key to high performance routing and this one has room to burn and grow as streaming video demands become iincreasinglymore intensive.To handle the increased pressures of our multitude of connected activities having ample processing power to burn is ideal.

For VPN users, having a large processor is imperative for the constant encryption and decryption the router will perform in this process. The better the processor, the faster the VPN encrypted information can get to you.

Router USB PortAUSB 3.0 port for best-in-class high speed data transfer (up to 10x faster than USB 2.0) and network sharing. Use these integrated USB port to attach a backup storage device, Network Attached Storage (NAS) backup,  or for creating a network printer. The faster the USB ports, the faster you can do network backups, transfer & share files between devices.

High Powered External Antennas

External antennas are utilized for maximum wireless reach and performance. since they are external. With minimal effort, they can be easily upgraded to even more powerful antennas for extended reach if you wish. DD-WRT allows you to control the transmission power of these antennas as well.

Wireless-AC Speed, Wireless-N Compatible

Getting a Wireless-AC device means you are future-proofing for network needs and staying ahead of networking demands rather than just playing catchup. Even though it is AC compatible, it will be Wireless-N and Wireless-G compatible as well.

Two things that should be on all of your minds: eating like a death row prisoner on Thanksgiving, and gearing up for the holiday gift-giving season.

There’s not much we can do to enhance the former – though we’ll certainly do our part in our own respective celebrations – but on the latter front, we have a lot to offer. After all, Black Friday is impending, and we at FlashRouters want to get in on the major discount fun.

But rather than diving heedlessly into the melee that is in-store Black Friday shopping, we encourage you to stay indoors, enjoy your food hangover, and get deals online.

And since, we know no one likes waiting, we’re are starting the deal right now! You can call it a pre-Black Friday sale or a pre-Cyber Monday sale but we call it savings. Just add the upgraded and enhanced router of your choice and get Free shipping inside the US via USPS Priority or a $ 25 discount to all customers outside the US. No coupon codes or hoops to jump through.

Add any router and the discount will show up right in the cart after you make a shipping quote (it has to figure out where you are to provide the correct discount. Get ready for the FlashRouters experience!

Note: This offer can not be combined with any other offer or discount code.

The Mission of FlashRouters

At FlashRouters, our primary goal is to provide our customers with devices that strengthen their wireless networks in terms of power, speed, and security. We work tirelessly to ensure that every router we sell is versatile and high-end. In fact, we just created a new animated video to explain what FlashRouters does and how it can benefit you that we are proud to reveal today!

We achieve this mission by flashing/upgrading all of our routers with open-source firmware (hence our name). Every FlashRouter is flashed with either DD-WRT or Tomato firmware, replacement firmwares that boost the functionality of already superior routers. Using a FlashRouter, you’ll be able to extend your wireless network and access advanced security options.

In fact, a FlashRouter will particularly come in handy this season when all of those Xbox Ones,iPad Airs, Roku 3s and Playstation 4s start getting unwrapped. Using a FlashRouter, you can even control the allocation of your bandwidth, which means you can prioritize activities that require more bandwidth, such as gaming and streaming movies & television (Netflix, Hulu and much more).

If you’re going to pay top-dollar for these gaming systems, you might as well ensure that they’re running the best they can. A FlashRouter will handily achieve that goal.

Netgear R6300 Wireless-AC DD-WRT FlashRouter

So we’ve told what a FlashRouter can do for you; why don’t we finally get to the deals? That’s what you’re here for, right?

We’re doing something rarely if ever do. We’re happy to announce that we will be officially suspending costs of USPS Priority (2-3 days) and slashing $ 25 off of international shipping costs on any FlashRouter during our Black Friday sale.

That’s right free USPS Priority shipping on any of our routers. Whether you go in for any of our new lightning-quick Wireless-AC devices, or perhaps if you prefer to buy one of our new basic economy Tomato models like the E1200 & E2500 or some popular favorite somewhere in between like the E4200 DD-WRT– our all-time best seller or the Netgear WNDR3700. This also applies to any VPN provider specific model on site.

Unlike many other companies, we do not just figure shipping costs into an item price and jack it up. We provide the best price per unit we can on a router while keeping a premium to properly pay a highly-trained, US-based expert tech support staff to help you with any problems or issues you may have. Then we get direct rates from our shipping carrier and have them included in our cart with no handling or added charges.

This deal won’t last forever (and can’t be combined with any other offers). In fact, it runs now through Cyber Monday Dec. 2. So if you value the best possible network centerpiece for your tech toys to come, act now.

Have a happy Thanksgivings from all of your friends at FlashRouters, and we’ll see you at the checkout page!
