If you have a wireless Internet connection, then you know what a wireless router is. And perhaps you also know that some routers today are old, slow, unreliable, and obsolete. If these apply to what you have now, then you don’t just need a new router, but a new kind of router. What you need is a FlashRouter.
A FlashRouter is some sort of upgrade on the regular router. It can be a replacement for your old router, or it can help extend the reach of that router. It involves an upgrade on the firmware, which is somewhat like a combination of hardware and software. The firmware refers to the data or programs that have been written on to the Read-Only Memory. It’s what allows hardware to be updated.
While the discussion on the firmware can get a bit technical, with FlashRouters you can be sure that the units you get have all been tested so you won’t inadvertently render it useless (which can happen when you flash a router incorrectly).
But you’ll want to flash your router because the improvements can be tremendous. For example, you can improve the Wi-Fi range. A short range can be terribly annoying, especially when you’re living in a large home and you often use your smartphone for surfing wherever you may be. Sometimes the walls can be impediments to the range as well. With a FlashRouter, such problems are easily solved.
Stability improves tremendously with a FlashRouter. Intermittent signals can be frustrating, especially when you’re trying to download large files. Downloading hundreds of MBs for a single file may well be impossible unless you use a Flash Router to shore up the stability issues.
Those who are especially concerned about online privacy can also have their worries assuaged. FlashRouters work with the top VPN providers so that your online activities are kept private and for your eyes only. There is no need for others to know you like downloading Real Housewives episodes. And the VPN service also enables you to get access to the most popular websites and streaming content, so you don’t get the dreaded “unavailable for your area” message.
With FlashRouters, you can upgrade your wireless setup without having fiddle with it or upset it somehow. With the dual router setup, you can have the FlashRouter act as a repeater as we’ve said, to extend the range and the strength of the signals. But you can also run two different connections at the same time, such as one for your ISP and another for your VPN. You can create a guest network with a separate gateway where guests can access the net through your router while you keep them away from your sensitive and private data. The FlashRouter may even have built-in USB support, so you can back up data or share folders for other PCs without having to use up storage space.
It all comes down to one inescapable fact: with FlashRouters, your wireless network simply works better.
