Wireless-AC DD-WRT Showdown

The big game is around the corner. That means parties, planning, pizza and probably an overloaded WiFi network from all the guests coming over. But you can’t be a bad host and hog the WiFi, right?

If you are constantly having issues with your wireless speeds, range, or coverage to different parts of your home or office, and maybe the family is doing a bit too much bandwidth-hungry streaming, then a FlashRouter might be just the ticket you need to a great Super Bowl Sunday.

In honor of Super Bowl XLIV (that’s 49 in Roman numerals) take $ 49 off our four most powerful Wireless-AC Routers.

Use coupon code SUPER.

Plus we are offering free support and warranty upgrades on all these high end models. Keep reading for more details.

The DD-WRT Router Bowl I

Netgear R7000 vs. Asus RT-AC87U

Championship weekend means championship savings!

Announcer Breakdown: These combatants both feature best-in-class 1 GHz processors. The RT-AC87U gets a little boost on wireless coverage with an added fourth external antenna and some TurboQAM technology. But the R7000 Nighthawk is scrappy and priced more than $ 100 lower. So which will it be… the max specs at a premium price or the superhero Nighthawk router? You decide which DD-WRT router is best.

Save $ 49 on either with coupon code SUPER *

AND THERE’S MORE: We are so confident you will love our championship level Wireless-AC routers, that this weekend we are offering FREE upgrades to 1 Year of Support (Reg $ 25) & Free Upgrade to a 1 Year Warranty (Regular: $ 35) on both the R7000 and the RT-AC87U.

PLUS: Upgrade to a 2 year warranty on either for only $ 25!

You are getting more performance, more support time and more assurance at the same price! This is the time of year when the cream of the crop performs! These discounts all add up to savings of $ 99 on the full coverage, and premium WiFi router experience you deserve.

So snag a heavy hitter today with deep discounts using the coupon SUPER.

What Makes a FlashRouter Championship Level?

It may sound like nothing but a DD-WRT firmware upgrade and optimization hand-crafted by FlashRouters means:

…and much more.

Get the best routers with the best security, features, and the best support right out of the box!

Wondering what a FlashRouter can do to strengthen your wireless network? Check out our animated video that explains why your outdated router might just be ready for retirement.

The 800 lbs Gorilla (& MHz) Showdown

RT-AC68U DD-WRT vs. Linksys EA6900 AC1900

For some, the big boys might be a bit overkill but any network can use more privacy capabilities and wireless-range. These opponents match hefty 800 MHz processors ready to perform in a network with full VPN encryption. Wirelessly, both come in at AC1900 max capabilities with three external antennas and with matching RAM/Flash memory. The Asus antennas are a bit more powerful and provide a bit more range but the EA6900 runs at a much cheaper price.

Both AC WiFi specialists will also include a FREE upgrade to 1 Year of Support.

Save $ 49 on either with coupon code SUPER

After the discount the EA6900 will come in under $ 250 for a high powered Wireless-AC experience plus a FREE upgrade to 1 Year of Support making it the best priced device of the bunch.

Still, these two are too close to call. And with this type of performance, there are really no losers when it comes to a fully upgraded WiFi, privacy, and network security experience.

*The Not So Fine Print: This offer only applies to new orders and cannot be combined with any other offers or previous orders. Good through Feb 1, 2015.

Meet the Asus RT-AC56U DD-WRT FlashRouter

The Asus RT-AC56U DD-WRT FlashRouter

Feel left out in the cold by the Wireless-AC party?

Sure, no one argues about the fact that Wireless-AC routers are the fastest and most powerful around, but that top-tier performance can come at a high price, financially speaking. No longer.

At FlashRouters, there is a brand new Asus DD-WRT compatible router that will bring you that inimitable Wireless-AC flair without breaking the bank.

The Asus RT-AC56U DD-WRT FlashRouter

Meet the Asus RT-AC 56U Wireless-AC1200 DD-WRT FlashRouter, the future of your network for under $ 200!


The Asus RT-AC56U DD-WRT FlashRouter comes equipped with

  • A supremely powerful 800 MHz Broadcom processor – Almost twice the speed of any similarly priced DD-WRT router. Processing speed is the most important part of the rotuer specs to onsider when it comes to VPN use. AS the processor increases so does the handling to the constant encryption/decryption that goes on within your wireless network.
  • A USB 3.0 port – For lightning quick transfer speeds up to 10x faster than USB 2.0.

But really the star of the show is…


Wireless-AC is the latest wireless draft for exponential signal capacity in the wireless market. Put another way, in terms of speed, Wireless-AC routers are ruling the roost right now. Especially when it comes to the addition of Wireless-AC to the iPhone 6 and iPhone Air 2.

If you’re one of the many people who streams most of their media these days, or if you just hate watching an endlessly buffering screen, then you need a fast router, and the Asus RT-AC56U delivers in spades, offering dual-band speeds of up to 1200 Mbps (300 @ 2.4 GHz & 867 @ 5 Ghz). You can thank Wireless-AC for that.

And where most Wireless-AC FlashRouters tend to cost north of $ 300, the Asus RT-AC56U delivers the goods at a shockingly low price of $ 199.99.  This is simply too good to miss.

Free One Year Warranty

Asus RT-AC56U DD-WRT FlashRouter

FlashRouters typically arrive with a free 90 day warranty, with an added option of a 1 year warranty for an additional $ 25. The Asus RT-AC56U, however, comes intact with a free 1 year warranty at just under $ 200. On top of all the added tech features, this extra warranty makes the RT-AC56U even more of a must have.

Added DD-WRT Features for the Asus RT-AC56U DD-WRT

Would you believe that there is even more to recommend this device? How about DD-WRT firmware, which takes the router’s standard firmware and basically supercharges it? Using an Asus DD-WRT compatible router means access to features like:

  • Premium Wireless Signal Clarity & Dual Band Coverage: Better quality audio and HD video streaming by design.
  • Standardized OpenVPN & PPTP Client/Server Integration.
  • Upgraded Stability: No more constant resetting or rebooting.
  • Elimination of Asus firmware issues, bugs, security vulnerabilities, limitations & quirks.
  • Advanced QoS: Manage & prioritize bandwidth/performance of services like Netflix, Skype, YouTube or P2P.
  • Integrated Wireless Survey Page: View conflicting wireless networks in your area to tweak your network accordingly.
  • Complete VLAN Support: Create properly secured segmented networks.

The RT-AC 56U is an Asus router compatible with DD-WRT that even offers full VPN service integration, just like every other FlashRouter. This means that you can receive your router ready to work with your VPN subscription right out of the box, provided that it’s one of the many VPN service providers featured on our Official Supported Provider List.

The FlashRouters Guarantee

Every FlashRouter we ship arrives at our customers’ doorsteps flashed, tested, and re-tested, and complete with an easy-to-follow set-up guide that makes installation a breeze. If you do find yourself in need of some set-up assistance, contact FlashRouters at any time. Our friendly sales and support staff is always ready to help.

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.

Each Netgear R6300 Wireless-AC DD-WRT FlashRouter includes:

  • A customized FlashRouter Setup Guide from our Networking Experts.
  • 3 months of Premium FlashRouters Internet Setup & VPN Support:  If you’re having any trouble with your FlashRouter, please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly and helpful staff, who will be more than happy and able to talk you through any problem.
  • 90 Day Warranty for DD-WRT installations: Flashing a device on your own completely voids the manufacturer warranty.
