Is Vilfo still top solution for VPN router or are the new Asus (and similar mfg) quad core routers the better solution. I have been using IPVanish on my gen 2 fire box for a couple of years and realize there is room for improvement.
Currently looking at AX86U or AX92U, but budget allows Vilfo. Just want to be happy with decision.
Welcome to our community!
Here’s a link and the Asus one troy mentions seems to be the best setup for vpn on the router.
But vilfo is still good.
Thank you, TP-Draco, for the quick response with links. Since that topic and Troy’s Vilfo review are approaching 1 year old, just want to get, hopefully, a few insider’s experiences.
One more note about my set-up; Gaming/streaming (5 devices) will be hardwired, everything else will be Wi-Fi (6 devices).
I will leave it open as others chime in on this. Lots of good options. I haven seen with Asus and tp link.
I have the AX86U…best purchase I made this year. I had the ax56u and it just wasnt enough and after a few monthes of tweaking it I realized it just wasnt possible and on recomendation from a friend I grabbed the ax86u and WOW what a difference. Blazing fast and I flashed it with asus-merlin firmware. This has solved most if not all streaming issues. I took the ax56u router and added it into a mesh network behind the ax86u. You will not be disapointed with it as your selection. Fast…real fast
TXRon, thanks for the info and turning me on to Merlin, that’s super sweet!
yep, The merlin firmware is built upon the actual asus firmware. Just tweaked a bit and offers better vpn functions(imho)…etc. Im actually running the curent pre-beta right now without issues.
So the next, obvious and inevitable question, “How are your speeds with and without VPN?”
Great without vpn no issues , with vpn (surfshark) my dls hover around 200mb dependingon server in use. I find my speeds are actually much faster with servers further from me. I would say a slow server would be around 140 down and the better servers hover the 200 mark.
