Guardian Routers Guide to VPN Routers



What Exactly Is A VPN Router?

A VPN router is much like any home router but with VPN capabilities built in providing protection and a secure private, anonymous internet communication to all of your devices. Not even your ISP will see your Internet traffic!


Why Do You Need A VPN Router?

1. Protect Multiple Devices

Secure all your devices at once through Wi-Fi or Ethernet, providing anonymous internet browsing for your entire household.

2. Extreme Convenience

The VPN is always active so no need to remember to sign in each time.

3. Superior Compatibility

Blanket protection for any device, IPTV Boxes, Apple, Android, MAC, Windows, CCTV Cameras, Smart home devices etc.

4. Completely Automated

Automatically connects to your VPN service without user input.

5. Secure Non-Native Devices

Ideal for devices like Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Roku, and Apple TV that don't typically support VPN use.

6. Unblock Applications and Content

Access location-specific applications and content by choosing different VPN Server address to access specific content from different countries.

Enjoy a secure, anonymous internet experience with a VPN router.


What Makes a Good VPN Router?

There is a lot of information on the Internet about what makes a good VPN Router - some of it is mis-leading ....If you purchase the correct VPN Router with the right VPN subscription you will have a fast, secure, safe, reliable VPN with little speed loss.

  1. You need a Router capable of running Wireguard VPN Protocol

  2. You need a VPN provider that supports Wireguard VPN on a Router

  3. You need a Router with a fast CPU (processor) - the faster the CPU the faster the VPN will run

  4. Additional Router features such as 'VPN Kill Switch' and 'Policy based routing' will give you further protection and flexibility.

  5. WiFi 6 - WiFi 6 Routers enjoy a 40% increase in speed over their WiFi 5 counterparts.


Which VPN providers allow Wireguard protcol on a Router?

Wireguard is still fairly new and only a few VPN providers allow the full 'un-edited' version of the Wireguard protocol to be used on a router. The two VPN providers we recommend are Zoog VPN and Surfshark VPN. Both of these providers have got it right. They are rock solid, allow all the streaming services including all IPTV, iPlayer, 4OD, Netflix, Amazon Prime etc, and connection to Sky TV services on your Sky box from outside of the UK.


What about Express, Nord, iPVanish, Ivacy and Pure VPN?

  1. Express VPN - Express VPN have coded their own version of Wireguard called Lightway and have restricted this to their dedicated VPN Routers such as Aircove

  2. Nord VPN - Nord VPN have coded their own version of Wireguard called Nordlynx and not currently available on a Router

  3. IPVanish - No Router support for Wireguard

  4. Ivacy - Wireguard Router support but keys last just 24 hours which make it unusable!

  5. Pure VPN - Wireguard Router support but keys last just 24 hours which make it unusable!
