Are you interested in having multiple Wi-Fi networks in your house with different roles? Do you love the benefits of a VPN provider but sometimes feel the need for a direct ISP connection? One great option for doing so on the fly is a VPN Wireless VPN Repeater!

Quick Overview

Whether you are making up for areas with a weak signal, or just trying to avoid a dreaded Wi-Fi dead zone, check out our favorite routers to use as Wi-Fi repeaters with a dedicated VPN connection.

How Does a Repeater Work?

Many people have asked us this. Putting a VPN Router in Repeater mode allows you to create an alternate network with a unique SSID, or identifier name. The new, alternate network can broadcast a signal for the VPN connection, separate from that of your main Wi-Fi network. This allows anyone in range to instantly connect to a fully configured VPN-enabled Wi-Fi Network without advanced configuration on each connected device.

A FlashRouter configured as a Wireless Repeater solves the issue of constant device configuration and switching, one of the most common complaints of VPN service. Devices like iPads, Android Tablets, Laptops, Smartphones, SmartTVs, and more can simply connect to the repeater network and instantly get VPN protection.

How Does a Repeater Boost the Distance of Your Wireless Signal?

If you are looking for an answer to spotty wireless connectivity in your home or office, a wireless extender/repeater could be the solution. This is a great option if you have an extra router lying around.

We can remotely flash a compatible router for you if you don’t want to invest in expensive mesh setups. You can expand the broadcast range and boost your wireless signal to cover far areas of your house with a VPN-enabled Wi-Fi network.

One of the best perks of this setup is that there is no need to connect the routers together via ethernet cord. No need to drill holes and run long wires through the walls of your home. A Router set up in Repeater Mode wirelessly creates an extension of any network to which it is attached.

Is the service plan a one time purchase or does it renew?

All FR service plans automatically renew on a quarterly or annual basis based on the term initially purchased. A reminder e-mail will be sent one week prior to renewal. In your FlashRouter account panel, you can cancel the plan at any time to stop any further renewals.

Does the service plan include a VPN subscription?

At this time, our service plans provide setup and configuration assistance for users who already have their own VPN service. If you are looking for VPN service options, check out our full list of supported VPN providers.

Do I have to buy a service plan?

Our routers are priced for the custom upgrades performed at our warehouse, testing expenses and keeping the FlashRouter App update to date.

Our service plan has three levels as an optional add-on with your purchase to get continued direct assistance from our team. This is especially useful to customers who are less tech savvy and want direct access to our support team to make sure their network is running exactly how they desire. Here is how these plans differ

Bronze – Basic E-mail Support
Silver – E-mail and Live Chat Support.
Gold – E-mail, Live Chat, and Remote One-on-One Sessions

Each situation and user has different needs and expertise. Our team of US-based support agents are highly trained specialists in VPN and DD-WRT router setup. From firmware updates to networking configuration/troubleshooting solutions, the purpose of our Service Plans is to help our customers in whatever level they deem necessary.

Does FlashRouters offer phone support?

At this time, we do not provide phone support with our service plans. We have tested phone support for networking troubleshooting in the past but have found that on average caused us to help less customers in a less efficient manner. However, with a purchase of a Gold Service Plan, customers can schedule 1-on-1 remote support sessions via Teamviewer with our engineers and they will provide a hands-on, personal solution, to any problems you may be facing.

Do I need a Service Plan for a firmware upgrade?

Firmware upgrades are free of charge to any FlashRouter customer!

You can visit our support center and select your specific router model to upgrade your firmware based on the recommendations provided.

If you want the help of our Support Team to assist in this upgrade, you can always sign up for our Gold Service Plan and schedule a 1-on-1 Teamviewer session in which our trained engineers will take care of the upgrade for you!

Can I purchase a router without a service plan and subscribe later?

Yes, you may purchase a service plan at any time. However, we can’t guarantee any pricing, or apply any previously offered discounts or specific features at that later date.
