    I have AC86U with latest version of Merlin. I am shopping for VPN and any recommendations would be awesome. Goal is to have all my network go through a VPN and why looking to use third party VPN. I am hoping there is way to add third party VPN on Merlin Openvpn option. Thanks in advance

    Interesting....I use NordVPN and I have AES-256-GCM activated in my RT-AC86U (compression disabled) and my speeds are always close to those of ISP.

    Was curious though, is ncp-disable something that could work with every VPN provider custom configuration? Obviously, PIA recommends this their setup. I have not tried it in mine but will do so tonight.

    Same as setting 'Cipher negotiation' to Disabled in the gui....

    The VPN provider has to enable the CGM ciphers.
