Hi all,

I am about to buy an Asus AC86U, and want to know about a feature I need that I saw could be done, which is simply to have a separate SSID to use with an OpenVPN connection the router would establish.

Regarding I have 2 doubts:

1) I have seen you can create up to 3 "guest" SSIDs, but can you fully define everything for these? Including DHCP scope, etc., or is it all just automatic?

2) While I saw that you can have routing through the VPN based on src/dst subnets, is that the way traffic for clients on a separate SSID gets routed, or is there a different way this is configured? (i.e. bridging the SSID with the tunnel interface, etc.).

Thanks for your help!

Edit: I guess I have 3! :)

3) Is there an option to create "OpenVPN profiles" and to switch between them on the fly (through the GUI) so for example on one the router connects to a US server, on another toa European server, etc. without having to configure the OpenVPN section each time you wanted to switch servers?
