Which router should I use with NordVPN?

If you want an out-of-the-box solution with extra safety and privacy by NordVPN, head over to our partners at FlashRouters. They offer preconfigured VPN routers that will deliver top-notch security and performance.

You can also buy a router and configure it yourself. We usually recommend these routers for home users without high requirements for performance (up to 10-40 Mbps respectively): Asus RT-N18U, Asus RT-AC66U, Asus RT-AC68U, Asus RT-AC87U, Asus RT-AC3200.

Please note that we strongly recommend getting an Asus router. While you can get many different routers from other manufacturers, Asus has a built-in OpenVPN client and requires little effort to set up. Most other routers require firmware flashing, which might be tricky and does not work on all platforms.

You can also buy any router that supports custom firmware:

DD-WRT: https://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices
Tomato: https://tomato.groov.pl/?page_id=69
Padavan: https://wikidevi.com/wiki/List_of_Padavan_firmware_supported_devices
OpenWRT: https://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/start
Merlin: https://github.com/RMerl/asuswrt-merlin/wiki/Supported-Devices

If you want a router that provides with the best performance possible (in the best-case scenario, up to 60 Mbps), check out these:

Asus: RT-AC88U, RT-AC3100, RT-AC5300
D-Link (requires flashing with DD-WRT): DIR-885L, DIR-895L
Linksys (requires flashing DD-WRT): EA8500, EA9500 (no DD-WRT available yet), WRT1900ACS, WRT3200ACM
Netgear (requires flashing DD-WRT): R7500, R7800, R8500, R9000
