Ordered this on the 11th for 99.99 fantastic device
Is this good for vpn
Out-of-the-box it uses the OpenVPN protocol, other VPN's are not supported:

However, the router can be bought with a re-flashed firmware to accept other VPN protocols

It looks amazing spec wise but why only one USB port? Currently running two on my Asus router and would need two on any new router....

Would using a vpn installed on your computer do the same thing?

Yeah. But for the computer only. Not the rest of the devices.

My VPN has mobile app too. No need to worry
Good deal though.
Does a device like this allow you to run a vpn network alongside a regular network so you can switch between the 2?

What is posted is not a router, not sure how applicable are the instructions for routers can be...

The manual is at

It doesn't look like it can act as a VPN client to me.

Does this have good parental control built-in?
Amazon market this as a range extender but am I right in thinking I could put my Virgin router into modem mode and use this as the home router?

I'm pretty sure you can do, I have this myself best thing I've bought in a while
Can I use this instead of Plusnet Fibre router ???

The standard router has very bad range
How does this differ from a normal cable router I'm confused?? What can't this do that say the r7000 nighthawk can do?
Just ordered to be used with Virgin SH 3.
This is only a wifi extender, if you want to use (for example) a virginmedia superhub in modem mode you need a router. This wifi extender can be used in addition to a superhub to provide a better wireless network, but not instead of.

Apologies, I thought this was the Nighthawk R7000 WiFi Cable & Fibre Router.

It is indeed the EX7000 extender model. Sorry for my confusion folks - do not order this to replace your existing fibre/cable router. It is simply a WiFi extender for 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz, albeit a very good extender.
