What router is recommended for use with NordVPN ?

If you want a router that is an out-of-the-box solution for NordVPN provided security and annonymity, you should head over to our partners at FlashRouters . They will provide you with a preconfigured router that will deliver top-notch security and performance.

You can also buy a router and configure it yourself. We usually recommend these routers for simple home usage and if you do not require much performance (up to 10-40Mbps respectively): Asus RT-N18U, Asus RT-AC66U, Asus RT-AC68U, Asus RT-AC87U, Asus RT-AC3200.

Please note, that while you can get many different routers from other manufacturers, we strongly recommend getting an Asus router, as it has a built-in OpenVPN client on it default firmware and requires minimal effort to setup. Most other routers require firmware flashing, which might be a troublesome procedure and is not supported on all platforms.

You can also acquire any router that supports custom firmware:

If you want a router that provides with the best performance possible (in best case scenario up to 60Mbps), please look at these ones:

Asus: RT-AC88U, RT-AC3100, RT-AC5300
