i got NordVPN and a new Asus RT-58u router recently
Managed to setup OpenVPN with Nord on the router but realised that it would apply for all SSIDs

Has anyone managed to setup different ssids like
1) Regular SSID
2) SSID connected to VPN

So I can simply toggle between the ssids rather than turning the VPN on/off on the router page (which routes all connected devices through the VPN)
I read that its possible if you use the AsusWRT - Merlin FW but would like to hear more about it before trying the setup

I have not tried this but I think it is not separate SSIDs but rather through different policies. So only the websites which need the Nord VPN will go through the VPN. Once setup is done and tested, it is automatic and transparent to the users. But then when the service providers change IP addresses, you may need to adjust the rules.

Do you mean the OpenVPN server on Asus routers? You need to have a good one with powerful CPU which can do encryption work fast in order to have good OpenVPN performance, like Asus RT-AC86U.

The performance is very good and can be around 200Mbps. New AX router like the AX88U and AX86U should offer similar performances.

Ref:
https://www.snbforums.com/threads/op...t-ac86u.41217/

So basically, expect around 200 Mbps of throughput for RT-AC86U (I doubt the GT-AC5300's extra cores will make any real difference, OpenVPN being single threaded). That's about 4x faster than the RT-AC68U, and probably around 3x faster than the RT-AC88U/RT-AC3100/RT-AC5300.
Yes, I am also getting abt 200Mbps , and no way above 250.
I still prefer the nomal w/o VPN with speed above 650 on wifi. Unless I really need the VPN. Now I am setting up another PC on this to save the trouble on changing the setting now and then.

can anyone post their speed on NordVPN with starhub or 1gb network? I'm on starhub 1gbps and using PIA. On SG servers i'm getting around 200-300 up/down speed. On HK server around 100-200. And JP around 100.

i saw that nordvpn has a lot of servers in a lot of countries, was wondering if the performance is better?

PIA is very fast based on your data. I doubt any other VPNs can have that kind of speed consistently in Singapore.

Nord VPN is pretty fast in US.
