LINKSYS WRT1200AC with DD-WRT is capable of running a VPN Client Direct from the router from any of the major VPN providers, with very little speed loss!

Processing power is the key to high-performance routing, for VPN users, having a large processor is imperative for the constant encryption and decryption the router will need to perform in this process. The faster the processor, the faster the VPN encrypted information can get to you!

We recommend running this behind your existing router, you will then have 2 gateways out on to the Internet, 1 secure behind your encrypted VPN and 1 though your normal router giving you the best of both worlds! Referred to as a Dual Router Setup.

Running your VPN from a router will only use 1 of your allowed connections, freeing up more connections to use outside your property on family mobiles etc.. All devices connected to the VPN Router via Ethernet or WI-FI will be protected behind the VPN encryption.

VPN stands for a Virtual Private Network and refers to software that is used to encrypt users Internet traffic and mask their Online identity by hiding their IP address. Therefore, the main purpose of this technology is to help you stay secure and private when downloading, streaming or just browsing the Internet.
Using a VPN is by far the most reliable way to protect your privacy and secure your Online activities. A VPN hides your IP address and encrypts all the traffic you send and receive.
We recommend OpenVPN over UDP Protocol in routers because it often offers the best of both worlds (speed and security) when it comes to VPN services. This Netgear router has enhanced DD-WRT firmware with full OpenVPN integration

Using a VPN provider within a router means that the setup only has to be done once and covers all of your devices.

A few benefits of using a VPN: - Mask your Internet connection IP address allowing you to access content and sites while being secure. A VPN will help you stay safe and secure Online while above all else keeping your private stuff private. Download and upload P2P files in privacy, bypass the Country's web censorship and content surveillance, stream Kodi and other web streaming services without restrictions & use search engines without having your searches logged even from your Internet service provider. (Especially important due to the legal crackdown on Streaming Content)
Avoid receiving infringement letters from your Internet Service Provider!

If you want a fast VPN speeds from a router then don't buy a budget router you'll simply be disappointed and wasting your money - THAT'S A FACT!!

The LINKSYS WRT1200AC DD-WRT VPN Router is very popular producing good VPN through speeds. It can be added to any ADSL or VDSL network including BT, BT Infinity, SKY, EE, Plusnet, TalkTalk etc etc.

Questions and Answers


Q. Does this router replace my modem?
A. No, the LINKSYS WRT1200AC DD-WRT VPN ROUTER is not a replacement modem, it is a router only, It has NO built in modem. It requires connecting to your ISP modem or existing modem router as pictured above and in our instruction leaflet included with the router.

Q. Can TVBC program the router with all the necessary files for my VPN provider?
A. We can Program all necessary Config’ s, Certificates & fully test the router for you if you provide your VPN credentials. It will then work straight out of the box.

Q. What do you need from me after i purchase the router?
A. Please provide after your purchase in either PayPal notes or by our Contact Us your VPN credentials: VPN Providers Name, your sign in details - user name, password & which server you prefer.
(We recommend a UK Server to reduce latency, if no server is specified we will install a UK Server!)
Please make sure these credentials are 100% correct with Capitals etc where required!
If NO details are provided after your purchase we will dispatch the router without the VPN section being configured and you will need to configure these details yourself!

Q. What if i am concerned about giving you my VPN credentials?
A. We recommend in this case you set a temporary password and then change it once you've received and tested the Router.
Our instruction leaflet provided with the router demonstrates how to do this along with other very useful settings or you can configure the VPN client section yourself if you prefer.

Q. What if i don't currently have a VPN service?
A. If you don't currently have a VPN service and are looking to purchase one or simply read more information about the benefits of using a VPN please read Our VPN Section HERE.

Q. What's a VPN Kill-Switch?
A. A VPN Kill-Switch is a critical piece of your VPN security solution which we program into our routers, this feature will ensure that your true IP address is never exposed Online in the event your VPN should ever fail. If you don't wish to have this great feature please let us know when you supply your VPN credentials.
Please note: Routers supplied without VPN configuration will not contain a Kill-Switch, because the VPN section has not been configured the Kill-Switch will stop all traffic getting out onto the Internet and the router will appear not to be working. (Basically the kill switch would be doing it's job)

Q. Why is a VPN slower than my normal line speed?
A. Any VPN service will always give you a small loss in speed, this is due to the hardware having to encrypt every packet of data sent and received.
This is why routers with less powerful CPU's and Ram (hardware) only produce 20-30% of your line speed. (We only supply routers that will produce a good VPN Speed) Simply put the better/faster the main processor (CPU) is, the faster your VPN will be!

Q. Your questions not listed above?
A. Please feel free to Contact Us.

Please Note:- This Router does not come with a VPN service included, this will need to be purchased separately unless you already have one!
