RUTHERFORD, N.J., Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FlashRouters, the premier destination for open-source firmware routers and advanced router configurations, has added support for IPVanish OpenVPN to its extensive list of networking solutions. In celebration, FlashRouters and IPVanish are offering new and existing customers three free months of IPVanish VPN service with the purchase of a three-month or one-year subscription along with any FlashRouter customized for IPVanish before November 1, 2013. Discounts on IPVanish-specific routers are also available.
All FlashRouter IPVanish Tomato or DD-WRT routers (http://www.flashrouters.com/routers/vpn-types/ipvanish-vpn-routers) are shipped with instructions to connect to an IPVanish account and can be pre-configured to do so out-of-the-box. IPVanish FlashRouters allow users to connect multiple devices to one VPN account, eliminating the need for VPN subscriptions for individual devices. Using the popular dual-router set-up, any device – smartphone, streaming media player, tablet, SmartTV, and computer – can easily switch between IPVanish VPN and the customer's local network at any time.
"FlashRouters' dual-router configuration allows customers to tailor their browsing experience based on personal preference," says Joseph Soria, co-founder of FlashRouters. "By adding a VPN router, customers gain advanced security and privacy options giving them access to content not available in their region, while also keeping the option to use their local networks for day-to-day use."
FlashRouters upgrades all routers with open-source Tomato or DD-WRT firmware to increase the stability and efficiency of already-powerful routers. This upgrade provides enhanced security options, as well as increased control over bandwidth and wireless signal range. The FlashRouters-IPVanish promotion is available on several of the most popular wireless router models, including the Asus RT-N66U Dark Knight Tomato and the Cisco Linksys E4200 DD-WRT or Tomato. DD-WRT is recommended for PPTP support and Tomato devices for establishing OpenVPN connection.
FlashRouters specializes in advanced router and networking solutions by installing enhanced open-source firmware such as DD-WRT or Tomato on popular router models and integrating VPN service for a variety of providers. Customers can simultaneously connect any wired or wireless devices to a single VPN service account.
A FlashRouter is the best way to utilize VPN connections to popular streaming media devices such as the Roku or AppleTV to watch services like Netflix and HuluPlus. Each router arrives with a customized installation guide configured to the customer's network specifications & requests with VPN service setup instructions for more than 20 providers including IPVanish, Overplay, PrivateInternetAccess and HMA.
All FlashRouters include a 90-day warranty, 30-day satisfaction guarantee and three months of basic Internet and VPN setup support. For more information, visit http://www.flashrouters.com.
