Hi, please do not throw rocks at me for this question, I would like to know what is the best router option (and not something that costs 300$ or more ) to run a simple OpenVPN server at home. Currently I am running one on a AC68U but it is kinda limited by it's processor power I think, the upload speed (download on client side) when conencted to it is only around 30 Mb although the line advertized speed offers 500Mb. The line when tested locally with speedtest.net shows around 450 Mb upload rate so there must be a hardware limit on the current router. I would prefer Asus due merlin firmware option. I've asked around and got as answer Mikrotik hAP ac² . Most results when googled return just answers related to router acting as clients. Maybe some optimisations that I could do on the AC68U stop some things that are currently running in order to gain more processing power? Thank you for any suggestions.
