Family watching TVProcessing 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 better/faster the processor, the faster the VPN encrypted information can get to you!

Offering top-shelf dual band wireless speeds with up to 1900 Mbps wireless-AC (450 Mbps on 2.4GHz & 1450Mpbs on 5.0Ghz) The R7000 delivers the fastest performance while handling the large amount of connected devices. The Netgear Nighthawk R7000 integrates three high powered external antennas for maximum wireless reach and performance.


The Netgear R7000 was manufactured with gaming, streaming and mobile devices in mind, this next generation gigabit Wi-Fi router has a 1GHz dual core processor and delivers extreme speed so you enjoy less lag and less buffering. Processing is the key to high-performance routing, and this one has room to burn and grow as streaming video demands become increasingly more intensive. 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 better the processor, the faster the VPN encrypted information can get to you.

Plug this in to any existing router & you will then have 2 gateways out on to the Internet, 1 secure behind your VPN & 1 though your normal router giving you the best of both worlds!

Running your VPN from a router will only use 1 of your allowed connections, so everything connected to this router either by Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi will be protected by your VPN, freeing up more connections to use outside your property on family mobiles etc. This is the best way to get all devices including Smart TVs, Android TV Boxes & Mobiles etc. on to your VPN service.

If you are just starting to scratch the surface of VPN, VPN Providers and their respective benefits, you are already on the right path to identity protection, network privacy, and personal security.
We recommend OpenVPN protocol because it often offers the best of both worlds (speed and security) when it comes to VPN services.
Sadly, OpenVPN is not an included option on most common routers.
This Netgear R7000 router has enhanced DD-WRT firmware with full OpenVPN integration.

Man on LaptopA few benefits of using a VPN on a Router: - Secures every device that's connected to it, upload and download P2P files in privacy, bypass the Country's web censorship and content surveillance, stream Kodi and other web streaming services without restrictions and use search engines without having your searches logged even from your Internet service provider.
Avoid receiving infringement letters from your Internet Service Provider!


How does a VPN work?
Basically a VPN encrypts the Internet connection so all of the data you're sending and receiving is secured from prying eyes or hackers.

If you want a fast VPN router then don't buy a budget router you'll simply be disappointed and wasting your money!! (That's A Fact!!)
The R7000 is a Good TOP END router, perfect for running DD-WRT OpenVPN producing good VPN through speeds, this is down to its Main Processor (CPU) that handles the VPN encryption.
The R7000 has 128MB flash with 256MB of RAM making it the ideal choice for the price.
Our testing shows we only lost approx.. 7 Mbps of download speed when connecting to Private Internet Access (PIA) Southampton server. (VPN Provider speeds do vary a lot!) See below our speed test results with and without PIA VPN connection. 



Why is a VPN slower than my normal line speed?
Any VPN service will always give you a small loss in speed, (if people say it wont they are lying) this is due to the hardware & software having to encrypt every packet of data sent and received.
This is why routers with less powerful CPU's and Ram (hardware) only produce a very disappointing 20-30% of your line speed.

The Netgear R7000 with DD-WRT with your VPN can be added to any Cable, ADSL or VDSL network including Virgin, BT, BT Infinity, SKY, EE, Plusnet, TalkTalk etc etc.
It's secure connection is recommended for all you Internet activity including banking, surfing, uploading,downloading, Kodi / IPTV Streaming (check your IPTV provider allows VPN connections), Satellite receivers, Smart TV's basically securing any device with a High End Encryption connecting to the Internet - Multiple users can stream HD content simultaneously.

Does the R7000 VPN router replace my modem?
No, the Netgear R7000 DD-WRT router is not a replacement modem, it is a router only, NO built in modem. It requires connecting to your ISP modem/existing Router as pictured above and in our instruction leaflet included with the router.

We can Program all necessary Config’ s, Certificates and fully test the router for you Free Of Charge if you provide your VPN credentials.

Please remember... If you would like us to configure the VPN for you, be sure to contact us with your VPN credentials after your router purchase, Please include your VPN Providers name, your correct username and password and if you have any preference to a particular server or server location. We normally select a UK server for less latency if no location is mentioned. PLEASE MAKE 100% SURE YOUR VPN CREDENTIALS ARE CORRECT! 

If we DO NOT receive either a note in PayPal or an email shortly after your purchase we will assume you don't want it configuring and the router will get dispatched without the VPN being configured and you'll have to configure it yourself.

If we configure the router for you, we will also install a Kill switch that stops you accessing the Internet & exposing your IP Address should the VPN ever stop for any reason. (A great safety feature for streamers and downloaders!)
