Not connected, Your IP:

Easy and cheap to get your whole network using AirVPN

Recommended Posts

I thought I would just post this here as a bit of advice to folks like myself who know a bit about computers and networking but not really that much.
In the past I have spent hours trying to get AirVPN set up on DD-WRT, PFSense and OpenWRT - basically I spent hours and hours, ending up with something functioning (pfSense - thanks to the guide here) eventually.

After my pfSense box died, I bricked two DD-WRT routers trying to set them up again, and spend hours trying to work out OpenWRT.
Eventually I ordered a GL.iNET micro router. It took about 10 minutes to get it working properly behind my ISP router - wish I had bought one ages ago!

I haven't seen a lot of info suggesting using these routers but I can recommend them, especially for the ease of use.
If anyone knows of other devices which are mostly plug and play it would be good to get a hardware list for all the non-techies who want a vpn but can't set up more involved options.
The more of the internet that is encrypted the better as far as I'm concerned!

I have added an AirVPN OpenVPN client profile to my Asus RT-AX88U. No extra hardware required at all.



Yeah, the ASUS routers are supposed to be good. That was my first simple option.
Unfortunately the one I bought (on ebay) had some random problem where it wouldn't accept changes in some settings, so that was a few days wasted!
Glad yours works though. I bet the wifi range is a lot better than my micro router.

I was going to suggest Turris Omnia here, remembering a few threads about it in the past. But on closer look it's a bit costly and definitely not an appliance-like solution. Lots of potential for tinkering, though, and a recommended router for similar use cases. :)

Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.
