    Default Best router for VPN?

    Started to use a VPN provider and want it all set up in the router rather than run a software client every time.

    I'm on SKY broadband ADSL and wondered if anyone can advise me of a decent router that won't cost me a small fortune?

    I am using SlickVPN.

    Do you want to route all traffic through the VPN? If so a compatible DD-WRT router should be sufficient. You can choose between PPTP or openVPN. openVPN will be hardware intensive and a powerful router will be required.

    My preferred solutoin would be to setup pfSense on a pc and hook it up to a suitable modem such as Draytek Vigor 120 for ADSL. Use this to replace the Sky router, and it can do VPN and a lot more.

    Next preference would be to use soemthing like a Draytek 2830 router instead the above.

    Next prefernce below that would be DDWRT.

    You can have the VPN device inside your network but this complicates things. Also when I tried to do this with a DDWRT router I had other problems that prevented me from implementing this idea.
