    Might want to check eBay. There are a few there with decent prices.

    Have a relative of mine who has been on the fence for quite some time now about getting a R7800 or a Linksys WRT32ACM. There are several threads in these forums where folks have attempted to point out the differences between the two but I have not been able to pick out a clear winner. It seems that that using OpenWrt (for both) or Voxel’s firmware (for R7800 only) significantly enhances performance but I am not quite clear from these threads on what the OpenVPN performance is, among few others.

    Anyone has a strong opinion on either router (or other Netgear/Linksys for that matter) or a verdict on which one to go with? Appreciate the advice.
