Best VPN routers 2022 | Android Central

The best VPN router for your home should support client VPN connections with easy configuration and straightforward options. VPNs can be great for keeping your data private online but adding a VPN profile can be a hassle – covering all of your devices at once can be a lot more convenient. Many routers let you add a VPN and a handful even let you choose which devices connect through that VPN. ASUS calls this feature VPN Fusion and has included it with most of its ROG routers including the speedy STRIX GS-AX5400.

Reasons to avoid

Expensive for most people

The ROG STRIX GS-AX5400 from ASUS is marketed as a gaming router with fast hardware and robust software to keep gaming pings low and speeds consistent. But in our review of this router, we found that these strengths transfer over well to general usage however and the dual-band AX5400 connection is a great fit for many homes with plenty of capacity for dozens of connections and enough speed to work well with a gigabit connection.
