@phoneboy do you have any advice on home routers/ap boxes? Think I'll need one soon. I'm assuming they're mostly the same. Any companies to avoid?
@phoneboy
@Eyes Sadly they all pretty much suck from a security perspective. My current choice, based on price/performance is the Archer C7 based on this Wirecutter review [thewirecutter.com]. For bonus points, you can load DD-WRT on it.
@Eyes
@phoneboy yeah, was looking at that. How much more difficult is it to use the open source software?
@phoneboy
@Eyes neither is particularly easy to use for a typical end user. DD-WRT just makes it more useful for nerds like me. Mine is primarily used as an access point as I have real firewalls :)
@pharsicle
@phoneboy Excuse me jumping in on your thread but I am interested in router that can connect to a VPN as well. Any advice? @Eyes
@phoneboy
@pharsicle @Eyes Not sure that the stock Archer C7 firmware can do this, but you should be able to do with DD-WRT loaded.
