Product Information

NETGEAR Nighthawk R7000 Wireless Cable & Fibre Router - AC 1900, Dual-band

Flashed with either DD-WRT or Tomato Firmware (select Router Options above) ready to simply plug and play behind your existing router

Works with BT Broadband, BT infinity, Sky, Talktalk, Plusnet, etc...

If you wanted to just use this router you will require a modem, but we recommend running this behind your existing router, you will then have 2 gateways out on to the internet, 1 secure behind your VPN and 1 though your normal router giving you the best of both options.

Running your VPN from a router will only use 1 of your 5 allowed connections, so everything behind the VPN connection is encrypted / protected freeing up 4 more connections to use outside your property eg. mobiles etc etc...

What is DD-WRT? DD-WRT is a Linux-based firmware project developed to enhance the performance and features of wireless Internet routers. This open-source firmware upgrade is developed for specific router models and used as a replacement for the inconsistent stock firmware. Modifying a router to DD-WRT lifts restrictions built in to the default firmware, providing advanced capabilities to make your Internet and Home Network more controllable and versatile.

This NETGEAR R7000 is recognised as being one of the fastest OpenVPN through speed routers available due to its 1GHz Dual Core Processor handling the VPN encryption and 128 MB flash and 256 MB RAM.

Less powerful routers will give disappointing speeds of around 20-30% line speed

We will not overclock the CPU this will void your warranty. Overclocking the CPU will indeed speed up your VPN speed but this is something you will need to do yourself at your own risk should you wish to do so.  

We recommend 2 VPN Providers please see HERE

If you contact us giving us your PIA or IPVanish user name and password we will send you the router tested and ready to simply plug and play, or if you prefer we can send it with all required ovpn files and you can add your user and password.

For an extra £10.00 we can set this router up for other VPN providers like ExpressVPN etc...  if you require this please contact us first same day dispatch may be affected depending on time and work load!

The Nighthawk Has Arrived...

Want better quality Netflix, Amazon Instant, Hulu, Crackle, or Vudu streaming with a Roku, AppleTV, & Boxee Box? Need to rise above interference problems from neighboring WiFi routers? VPN Client & Server Integration for OpenVPN or PPTP? Of course you do.

Meet the Netgear R7000 Nighthawk DD-WRT FlashRouter, AKA, the Netgear Nighthawk, a networking centerpiece with more than enough power and style to future-proof your WiFi network to next-gen Wireless-AC standards. The Netgear R7000 Nighthawk prepares your network for all the latest devices while still offering full support for Wireless-G and Wireless-N legacy devices.

Offering top-shelf dual band wireless speeds with up to 1900 Mbps Wireless-AC(450 2.4 Mbps & 1450 5.0 Mbps), the R7000 delivers the fastest performance while handling the largest amount of connected devices. The Netgear Nighthawk R7000 integrates three high-powered external antennas for maximum wireless reach and performance. Since they are external, they are easily upgradable to even more powerful antennas for extended reach if you so desire.

The R7000 model bumps the internal processor to a DD-WRT best-in-class Dual Core 1 GHz (1000 MHz) Broadcom CPU, besting even our other top-end devices, which run from an excellent 600 MHz. In fact, this is the most popular dual core router we are offering with DD-WRT support.

Processing is the key to high-performance routing, and this one has room to burn and grow as streaming video demands become increasingly more intensive. For VPN users, having a large processor is imperative for the constant encryption and decryption the router will need to perform in this process. The better the processor, the faster the VPN encrypted information can get to you.
