Product Information

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

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

This Item is Pre-owned

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



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.

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 shows this model will allow aprox 40Mbps VPN through speeds with no overclocking from a 60Mbps line speed, for a faster VPN through speed look at the Netgear R7000 DD-WRT.

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


We recommend 2 VPN Providers please see HERE
