Help me chose the best router/wireless

Recommended Posts

I would like to get a router/wifi system that can work with the following requirements

1) Support AirVPN
2) Be able to create multiple wireless networks that can either go through VPN or direct or for my IoT devices
3) Support mesh so I can have multiple access points across the home
4) Allow controls to restrict particular devices at particular times from any of the networks

Would appreciate any help.

  1. All routers supporting OpenVPN will meet this, for example routers with OpenWRT.
  2. I think any router with OpenWRT can do that. In extreme cases a small pfSense computer will definitely do, but it requires a bit of knowledge.
  3. OpenWRT can do that, I've heard.
  4. Erm... not sure.

» The community kindly asks you to not set up Tor exit relays when connected to AirVPN. Their IP addresses are subject to restrictions and these are relayed to all users of the affected servers.

2. Never seen it on prosumer router,  pfsense would be better.

OPNSense also would work.
