Hello
Which DD-WRT router do you reccomend mainly for VPN use?
Wi-fi not so important for my target use (router wired between ISP modem and my HP switch).

Thank you in advance for all your answers with suggestions / support.

My budget: 130/150 Euro approx

I have restricted my research and I'm asking for your opinion about the following three routers; remember that my main target is to use it wired (not wi-fi) and for VPN purpose (home use with 20 Mbps ISP line):

- Linksys WRT3200ACM
- Netgear X4S R7800
- Linksys WRT1900ACS

Thank you for your prompt replies.
Ciao

Both of those routers are overkill for VPN use.

Get a Asus RTAC68U or WRT1200AC

Both will do 65+ Mbps and have detachable antennas

go for the

avoid broadcom (closed source drivers only)
you are more flexible with alternative firmware
