The nighthawk seems like it has better speed for single devices and its cheaper I am probably just going with it.
I get 150Mbps using AES-256 on my $50 router...I think its max performance is 450 Mbps using AES-128. So you don't necessarily have to spend a ton to get decent VPN performance.Originally Posted by hrockh
VPN performance on any router is terrible. Though it's better than nothing, on my Archer C7 I get around 20mb.
might move to pfsense soon
very neat! what do you use for your wireless? Ubiquity?Originally Posted by the9quad

You can also put DD-WRT on it if you wanted to, but it would kind of be a few steps back compared to RouterOS that comes with it,
One day I will build a box for pfsense as well, just don't have a need for it right now.
Actually I can't run cat6 to APs so I went with Orbis as APs. I'm letting the hex do the routing though, kind of expensive just using them as APs but they work really well.
I have the U.S. version (the one with the "locked" firmware) and was able to flash it with the latest LEDE snapshot of OpenWRT, and then use PuTTy (an SSH client) to install LuCi (the GUI). It worked great. Then I went to the latest beta of DD-WRT which I'm running right now. DD-WRT is OK but it has it's weaknesses... setting up Static DHCP is a pain, and it doesn't have as many packages available as OpenWRT does (adblock). And also OpenWRT is on the 4.9 Linux kernel whereas DD-WRT is still on the 3.10 kernel. I'm only sticking with DD-wrt because I hope to get the OpenVPN server running soon.Originally Posted by Liranan
Maybe i should start selling Chinese TP-Link routers as they won't have this stupid restriction.
