Anyone got/recommend a VPN router?

Is there much difference from having that, compared to just fannying about with a VPN on the laptop? Just noticed my VPN subscription is up for renewal so was just looking at other options.

Depends what your budget is...

Genuinely think you are better off with just a subscription. Who is your current one with?

If you have a VPN router it will apply the VPN to all devices attached to that router. With the VPN on your laptop it's per device. It also means all traffic is filtered before it ever reaches your device, which I think is potentially safer.

Aye that’s the main thing I was looking at. Cheers.

Not got a clue what one though. Pretty big price differences on Amazon, but all got decent reviews Jezza

Excellent choice, have the same one and had it for a few years now. Easy to assemble, piece of piss to use and isn’t expensive either.

Would recommend getting the cover for it too, saves you having to store it away in the winter or when it inevitably chucks it down.
