My current router (ASUS RT-AC658U) I'm quite happy with, however I want to configure it to direct most traffic through a VPN. It does support configuring a VPN connection on the router, but in an "all or nothing" manner. This causes an issue because:
- Gaming over VPN provides a very poor experience
- Netflix (and certain other services) can detect the VPN (most likely identify the IP belongs to a VPN provider) and block their service.
I'm looking for a wireless router matching the following:
- 2.5 GHz, and 5 GHz
- Guest networks
- Port forwarding
- Generally well reviewed, dependable, no major issues, etc.
More importantly (and more distinctly from my current router) it allows VPN traffic with firewall-like rules.
I am more technically inclined (I'm comfortable with command line, terminal, network troubleshooting), although I don't need a build-it-yourself hard-technical solution if there's an easier out-of-the-box solution.
I'd like to spend
