Commercial VPN routers are generally designed for ease of use by non-techy users. Unfortunately this ease of use comes at the cost of limiting what you can do them. DD-WRT is an open source project aimed at developing a Linux based firmware solution that removes the restrictions placed on routers by their default programming.
At the end of this post we will explore different points relating to DD-WRT routers such as the advantages that DD-WRT providers, how to go about it flashing a normal router if you wish to go about it on your own and how to set up VPN on DD-WRT.
Flashed Router Providers
There are two primary providers of Flashed Routers: FlashRouters and Router Source, both have their good and bad points. FlashRouters is definitely a lot bigger and provides a much larger range as well as having marginally lower prices. FlashRouters also provides Tomato routers alongside DD-WRT but Router Source provides Sabai OS flashed routers which is designed with VPN users in mind and performs excellently.
On the support side RouterSource definitely trumps FlashRouters as not only does it provide 1 year hardware and technical guarantee it also provides a 90 day satisfaction guarantee (compared to 90 days and no satisfaction guarantee) – so if you’re a beginner in the world of flashed routers and feel like you might run into a lot of issues, RouterSource will likely be worth it’s more expensive price.
If you live in Thailand there is also the small provider FreedomRouters whom you can use.
There are a lot of Commercial VPN routers that are compatible with DD-WRT, so this list can in no way be considered definitive. Still, these Commercial VPN routers come highly recommended, and are good, solid choices. Given the differences and capabilities, we have decided against putting them in order of preference, in favour of letting you choose which features etc. are important to you.
