Open-source router firmware can open up a whole new world of possibilities when it comes to internet connectivity. For many people, the firmware of choice is DD-WRT. All you need is a wireless router, a service that supports its functionality and you are good to go.
The Netgear Nighthawk X10 R9000 is indisputably one of the best wireless routers out there. It’s pricey, too. One way to make the whole investment more affordable is by flashing the router yourself as opposed to buying one from a third-party vendor.
