Wireless Freedom

Powered by OpenWRT

The OpenWrt Project is a Linux based operating system that can run on a variety of embedded devices. Stock router firmware provided by a vendor can severely limit your capabilities, while OpenWrt provides a fully accessible filesystem and package management system so you can customize your router to fit your exact use case. OpenWRT has a large list of open-source packages that you can browse through and install at any time. OpenWRT gives the user true wireless freedom so they can customize every aspect of their router without limitations. This is the equivalent of a router OS that comes with a powerful app store which provides your Wifi access point the ability to do things the original manufacturer never envisioned. Welcome to true wireless freedom with the power of open source router firmware OpenWRT.

The Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Router comes with powerful WiFi technology was built to connect to every device in your home—with extensive reach on any level or room. Laptops, tablets, phones, TVs, game consoles, music streamers, web servers – if it’s WiFi enabled, it’s X6 enhanced. A powerful combination of features —wireless speed of up to 3.2Gbps, Multiple Wifi Bands, Dynamic QoS— guarantees every device is assigned the fastest WiFi connection possible and optimized for maximum speed.

Under the hood of the X6 you will find a powerful 1 GHz dual-core processor along with 3 offload processors, 128MB of Flash memory, and 256MB of RAM memory. In addition to the improved processing power, this router utilizes six high performance external antennas allowing the signal to reach beyond the range of similar routers. With Beamforming+ technology, that signal can be directed to specific devices for enhanced speed, reliability, and range.

We have pre-loaded this router with the latest build of OpenWRT and added TorGuard VPN server options so you can enable network wide encryption with just a few clicks.
