RUTHERFORD, N.J., July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cisco's Internet Business Solutions Group (IBSG) predicts some 25 billion devices will be connected by 2015, and 50 billion by 2020. But when was the last time you thought about upgrading your wireless router, the most important piece of hardware in your home for keeping up with wireless needs in this changing technological landscape?
Is it Time to Upgrade Your Router?
Before you ditch an under-performing smartphone,laptop or tablet, or pay for more bandwidth from an ISP, take a look at your wireless router, as it may in fact be the source of your issues. Constant buffering and Internet service provider throttling on streaming services like Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Instant Prime, can often be remedied by having the proper router hardware in place.
FlashRouters installs or "flashes" open source firmware on popular router models to increase functionality, stability, speed, and security. Open source firmware removes bugs, security vulnerabilities, and networking back-doors. Proprietary manufacturer firmware that does not allow for public vetting of source code may leave a router open to hackers or other malicious parties. Advanced routing modes are also limited in stock firmware. Open source upgrades unlock an array of enterprise level features, like wireless extender modes and VPN connectivity options.
"Our unique router solution gives personal users and small business owners the necessary performance upgrades to keep their home and office wireless networks up to date and in sync with the latest gadgets, while also providing a level of encryption against modernized cyber-security threats," according to David Schwartz, co-founder of FlashRouters. "By partnering with premiere VPN companies located around the globe to create an enhanced privacy solution, FlashRouters puts itself on the front lines in the mission to provide anyone in the world with an open and secure Internet experience."
