Product Information

 NETGEAR R6250 Wireless Cable & Fibre Router - AC 1600, Dual-band

Flashed with either DD-WRT or Tomato Firmware we recommend  DD-WRT (Select Router Options Above) ready to simply plug and play behind your existing router


This Item is Refurbished and TESTED

May show signs of light use, maybe with or without original box, 100% fully testedwith 90 day Warranty



Works with ALL MAJOR Broadband providers, BT Broadband, BT infinity, Sky, Talktalk, Plusnet, Virgin etc etc...

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 allowed connections, so everything behind the VPN connection is encrypted / protected freeing up more VPN connections to use outside your property eg. family 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.

What is Tomato? Like DD-WRT Tomato is firmware designed as an open-source option to replace the stock firmware on select wireless router hardware. It is meant to boost the functionality of your router in ways that your average router's stock firmware simply cannot achieve.

This NETGEAR R6250 is recognised as being a great option for OpenVPN with a good VPN through speed due to its 800MHz Dual Core Processor handling the VPN encryption and 128 MB flash and 256 MB RAM.

Our testing has shown you can reach VPN through speeds of up to 50Mbps with this R6250 DD-WRT Router from a 70Mbps line running a Private Internet Access (PIA) VPN. Speed Test pictured below

Without VPN


With PIA Southampton VPN


Why is a VPN slower than my normal line speed?
Any VPN service will always give you a small loss in speed, (if people say it wont they are lying) this is due to the hardware & software having to encrypt every packet of data sent and received. This is why routers with less powerful CPU's and Ram (hardware) only produce 20-30% of your line speed.

If you require a faster VPN through speed please check out our other items the Netgear R7000 or the R800 our top end VPN Router HERE.

We recommend 5 VPN Providers please see HERE

If you contact us after your purchase and provide us your VPN provider username and password for any of the our recommended VPN providers 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 certificates and you can simply enter your usernane and password. (This depends on the VPN Provider please ask) PIA, IPVanish & PureVPN we can load without username and password. 

if you have any question feel free to contact us HERE
