I can only tell you ExpressVPN is good.

Normally won't notice i'm on VPN.
But it will surely drop speed if you do heavy downloads which you can't avoid with any service

i see that you are Mr CEO from M1 FIBRE BROADBAND DISCUSSION thread.

too much free time and watch all of it already.

Not enough time as i only have 4 hrs per week to watch Tv. Looking at the titles and watched 15 min already stopped watching. Boring show. My family also do not like it. Terminated and removed app totally. Do not waste time on it.

Any cheap VPN account for routers?

I got a spare old Linksys router with DD-WRT firmware.
I wish to configure my router to provide VPN feature if I connect via certain wireless SSID, or standard ISP connection (non-VPN) if using my default home SSID.

Can such setup be configured with ease?
Which VPN give u such flexibility? login with no-prompt no interactive menu?
And cheaply...

cheap does not mean good and fast...

just ask the vpn provider whether they support ddwrt router openvpn client will do.... most of it support

as for china great firewall good luck, better pay monthly instead of yearly subscription so once this provider cannot, can change anytime.

actually for china best method is to setup ur home router as openvpn server so you can connect to your singapore home openvpn router and most likely it will not be block as it is not common to other and only you use.

you can also setup the openvpn router on port 443 instead of the default port

get Asus router best and use Asuswrt-Merlin firmware

if use Asus stock firmware, you can either use pptp vpn server or openvpn server one at a time.

if use Asuswrt-Merlin firmware, you can have both enable same time.

then use ddns on the asus router so you can connect to the router using ddns name.

apply Free Dynamic DNS at no-ip.com
http://www.noip.com/remote-access

Remote Access with Dynamic DNS
Dynamic DNS points an easy to remember hostname to your dynamic IP address.



Download firmware

For general support question, please use the public Support Forum hosted at SmallNetBuilder.

i prefer Asuswrt-Merlin firmware.

This is a customized version of Asuswrt, the firmware developed and used by Asus on many of their routers.

Official support:
RT-N66U
RT-AC66U
RT-AC56U
RT-AC68U/RT-AC68P
RT-AC87U
RT-AC88U
RT-AC3100
RT-AC3200

As mentioned, I don't really use it for connection to or from china.. but rather just for climbing.. so for that one, is it astrill still the best choice? or maybe expressvpn or other?

any suggestion?

Thanks.
