    Router that can reliably utilise VPN at 200Mbit/s

    I’ll be moving to Virgin within a couple of months, probably to one of their 200Mbit packages. I’m well aware of Virgin's limitations so no need to inform me further

    I want to use a router based VPN for privacy reasons, probably an OpenVPN link to a NordVPN server. Obviously I’d like to utilise the (theoretical) full bandwidth available to me but it seems that most consumer level routers aren’t powerful enough to do so. So the question is, what can? I’m aware of Mikrotik and also Edgerouters but can’t determine if they will do what I want of them. Ideally I’d like an all in one wifi capable router with around four Gigabit network ports.

    R7000 with native firmware supports upto approx 400mbit/450mbit, I have it with 150mb from virgin and have no issues.

    The newer firmware supports a vpn server or you can port forward to an internal host,

    400mbit over a VPN? That’d be good!

    I’ve spun up an OPNSense VM in the meantime and I’m experimenting with that at the moment.

    Agree the R7000 is decent router, or use a higher end Asus AC model with custom firmware from Merlin.
