Plug this in to any existing router, you will then have 2 gateways out on to the internet, one secured behind your VPN and one 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 because it often offers the best of both worlds (speed and security) when it comes to VPN services.
This Netgear R7800 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 can cover all of your devices. Any device connected Via Ethernet or Wi-Fi to the Netgear R7800 VPN router will be safely encrypted behind your VPN service.

A 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

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 R7800 with DD-WRT is about Netgear' s fastest TOP END VPN Router, producing great VPN through speeds.

This R7800 has 128MB flash 512MB of RAM & 1.7Ghz Dual Core CPU that handles the encrypting & decrypting of the VPN making it the ideal choice.

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 20-30% of your line speed.
This R7800 will give you about the fastest VPN speeds available from a router!

The Netgear R7800 with DD-WRT can be added to any Cable, ADSL or VDSL network including Virgin, BT, BT Infinity, SKY, EE, Plusnet, TalkTalk etc etc.
It's suitable for Kodi / IPTV (check your IPTV provider allows VPN connections) Mag boxes, Fire Stick's Satellite receivers TV's etc. etc..
Multiple users can stream HD content simultaneously.

Does the R7800 VPN router replace my modem?
No, the Netgear R7800 DD-WRT router is not a replacement modem, it is a router only, It has 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!)
