We often review VPNs, routers and firmware related to DD-WRT (Tomato, Sabai OS) so we have decided to gather all the information in one spot to provide you with ease of access. Make sure you bookmark this page as we will be bringing plenty of helpful write ups and reviews.

If you don’t know what DD-WRT is then check out the Installing DD-WRT link below for more information. If you want help with getting a DD-WRT without having to risk bricking your router then check out FlashRouters (they also provide Tomato based routers). We have also included some router reviews and some other interesting links for your viewing pleasure.

Note: Please bare in mind that all information is provided ‘as is’ and we can’t take any responsibility for any damage or problems you cause to your router.
