What speed do you get with AirVPN through your router? I'm running Tomato firmware on an Asus RT-A66U and it maxes out at about 1.3MB/sec with VPN but it's about 4 without. I know all the encryption means you need a powerful router but still seems slow to me?
Router has been despatched and arriving tomorrow.
Depends which devices etc you use. I'm using Merlin and I've got my *cough* Kodi *cough* boxes set to go through VPN at all times and block if the VPN goes down. All other devices go straight out to the internet. I use AirVPN and they also provide a nice Windows client to connect to VPN if on a computer, but also have a utility to generate the ovpn config file to upload to the router. Can't fault this router and it's a steal at this price!
Not many VPNs work with Netflix but try the below. restoreprivacy.com/best-vpn-for-netflix Even then you will struggle to find a single server that works with both Netflix and Amazon i suspect. But the good news with the Asus Router (I have the RT-AC86u) is you can split tunnel over muliple VPN connections with Merlin firmware. So you can either set up two VPN connections on the router and have different devices go to a different VPN servers (example send a Firestick to the Netflix working server and set an Xbox to go to an Amazon working server.) I suggest setting up a main server using a LAN IP address that will cover all devices connected to router and then remove indivdual devices from the main VPN client and add the devices removed from the first VPN client to the second VPN client. This video will show you how to that on an ASUS router. Option 2: set up a main VPN server on the router as above but have a VPN that has an App for your device. . So by default the Netflix/ amazon player or device will connect thru the Router VPN tunnel ( set the router to connect to a netflix working server lets say ) but when wanting to connect to amazon turn the app VPN on and connect to an Amazon working server. You are effectively running a second App created VPN tunnel inside the Router VPN tunnel. This kind of flexiable set up will work well when then the UK adult website verification comes in. Connect a device you want to block adult content (but still be protected by a VPN) on to a UK based VPN server , and send any traffic you don't wish to block adult content on to a non UK VPN server. The UK will become a default adult filter for all nations. Say you live in USA and you want your son/ daughters smart phone to be protected by a VPN on a public Wifi networks ect but still block adult content? Easy connect to a UK server of your VPN provider and lock the VPN app so they cannot change the location. You can actually do this right now with this router as the Trend Micro parental controls can content filter in tandem with the VPN. And not just adult websites either you can block things like Gambling sites or even torrenting. You do of course lose that protection when you move off the Router. Almost forgot to say... great deal ...very hot.
Same combination I am planning. Netflix are getting good at stopping vpns now.
