So now you tell me routers don't have a functionality to run VPN client natively?

WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK!!!!

We go to Moon and beyond but my data packets can't even tunnel directly through router.

    @HiFiWiFiSciFi I read about flashing this on router. Not sure whether I should go ahead with it or not.

    Let me read this link though.

    @F1973 argh fine, 69¢ then?

    @C0D4 I want it all to myself, seems to be in high demand lately

    @neeno alright let me talk to @Rutee07

    Hey, Rutee! Shall we close the deal and open the hole?

    This is possible on
    Tplink routers https://tp-link.com/us/support/...
    Asus routers https://getflix.zendesk.com/hc/...
    Mikrotik routers https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/...

    And others. The routers I've come across in the past 3 years had a native client available built-in OEM software, stuff from earlier had it available through the likes of OpenWRT or Tomato.

    @theKarlisK my dumbass failed to research enough. Let me check those.

    Thanks as always buddy.

    @theKarlisK so I have a TPLink and checked your link. I already skimmed through it in the morning and it explains how to setup router as a VPN server and not as a client.

    Will check Tomato now.

    My router doesn't even let me change the dns. I'm in Australia and my isp blocks websites via dns. The sales guy even gave me a weird spiel about how third party routers might not work but that shouldn't be a problem because there's no reason for me to use a third party router. He brought it up on his own, too. I don't even care, I just set the dns in my os and use a vpn when I'm doing something illegal

    @M3m35terJ05h who are you with, Telstra?

    @M3m35terJ05h this makes sense now.

    I'm with TPG, their router is slow as shit to configure anything but it's atleast configurable.

    @F1973 He already has too many holes at this point. He might die if I open up a new one. I'm not ready for that yet.

    Why would you need a constant vpn on your router?
  • 2
    @Linux which router is a good one though?
  • 1
    @iiii to avoid installation on each client and have a network wide VPN for every device.

    Also, saves mobile battery drain.

    @F1973 why would you need a network wide vpn?
  • 1
    @F1973 my bad, I grabbed the generic version I could find... it can be a per model specific version. I know my Tplink Archer C7 offers both the capability to configure a ovpn server and client.

    If you drop me your model I can take a look in the manual.

    @iiii it might seem ridiculous from the perspective of a civilized world but there are countries in which the actions of the government have forced people into this.
  • 0
    @theKarlisK elaborate
  • 0
    @iiii so that all my devices go through VPN without me having to configure each one of them individually.

    @theKarlisK sure. I check my Netgear and it's not there.

    I'll need to check my TP Link and D Link router.

    But for now I think I am fine until I migrate to Hetzner. So yeah don't bother now.

    Thanks for the help, I'll hit you up once my remote infra is set.

    @F1973 Why do you need a vpn on everything?

    @iiii Privacy + Access to content + DNS via Pi+Hole.

    Now if you ask me why Pi+Hole, I'll kick you in nuts 😂😂

    @F1973 vpn does not make anything private. It's a marketing gimmick.

    @F1973 dumping your traffic through one specific server will make surveillance even easier.
  • 0
    @iiii also I can connect to my own DNS if I have VPN which wouldn't be possible otherwise
  • 0
    @F1973 do DNS requests get blocked by your ISP?
  • 0
    @iiii

    Edgerouter is a Good start.
  • 0
    @iiii advertisements maybe?
  • 0
    @Linux never heard of such brand...

    Oh, wait. I meant a home router+wifi access point. Not a server grade router. Are there any good ones?
  • 0
    @F1973 what? i wasn't asking about advertisements at all.
  • 1
    @iiii

    Edgerouter + unifi.
