    I'm curious about whether one could get an L2TP/IPSEC VPN client running on the RT-AC86U. The Merlin firmware doesn't support that - it offers an L2TP/IPSEC server, but only unencrypted L2TP as a client. (Standard Asuswrt is the same). But is there some kind of installable extension that could do the job?

    I ask because I've recently been having fun getting Wireguard working on my RT-AC86U (in an experimental fashion - see https://www.snbforums.com/threads/experimental-wireguard-for-rt-ac86u.46164/ ). I'm wondering if one could enable L2TP/IPSEC in a similar way.
