Looking to setup AirVPN on my Tomato Shibby Router (rt-n66u/r7000)

Recommended Posts

So I love AirVPN, I use the portable app that runs on my machine, and I get great speeds, usually 60 Mbps when connected.  However I would love to run it on my router so that way I could possibly run another VPN on top of it for extra security, but it's more so for the peace of mind knowing that my router is 100% securing my data at all times. 

 

I have 2 different routers, and I was going to try to have my main dedicated router broadcasting my normal signal, and then my Asus Rt-n66u running a VPN at all times.  After running through the setup guides and everything I was able to get a successful connection however the speeds were terrible, maxing out at around 7 Mbps.  I need desperate help as my other router (r7000) has a similar problem with speeds only maxing out at about 10 Mbps.  This isn't doable, and I love getting decent speeds but I can't work with something this slow.

 

Has anyone else here had any similar issues with installation to a router?  I was also looking at the Ubiquiti Edgerouter as a higher performing router, I just want to be sure I've expended all my resources before I buy another router that may be more powerful.

I also wouldn't mind running pfsense, on a slightly more expensive Mini-PC, and then trying to maxout what I can of my AirVPN connection installed directly through OpenVPN on a pfsense box.

 

I'm open to anything, and if anyone can help me with this solution I would gladly tip them very handsomely with some BTC.

 

I have spent WAY too many hours trying to think of different solutions, so if someone can point me in the right direction to either utilizing my existing hardware, or getting a more optimal setup, I am all ears!

Hello !

 

OpenVPN exacts a high toll on router CPUs, so perhaps you should consider a dedicated box like the Zbox Nano, with pfSense.

That's what I've been hearing.  I will Google the Zbox Nano, and read more about it. 

 

Do you use a similar setup?

I just use DD-WRT, but I'm going to switch to a Zbox like solution eventually.

Have you tried Xvortex firmware on R7000?

It is a ported version of merlin's firmware.

I have been using it from last 1 year (though not running VPN client on it) and is working fine.

You can find more details at their thread: http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/asuswrt-merlin-on-netgear-r7000.71108

 

Yeah let me check this out as well.  I was more so looking for good OpenVPN speeds, but I will read over to see if it would be something I would consider. Thanks!

Yeah I actually saw a few fairly priced ones on Amazon, I might pull the trigger as the response seems to be well for a dedicated VPN box.

Considering it's such a quality VPN, one might as well get serious about ones own hardware setup as well lol.
