Simple setup in a few minutes

The setup is done in a few minutes using a configuration helper. Apart from a few chunks in “English”, you don't really need to have any great previous knowledge to use the router. Even installing one VPNServices are either through the existing PPTP VPNClient by entering less data or partially automatically with the OpenVPNClient over the OVPN Configuration files of the VPNServices.

VyprVPN Review

Compatible with all VPNServices via PPTP or OpenVPN

The Gl.iNet routers have one VPNClient for PPTP as well as for OpenVPN preinstalled, so that can be synonymous with the vast majority VPNUse services with it. Who in the company an OpenVPNServer can of course also connect directly to the company network. Because the router is already the latest OpenVPN Version understands are when using OVPN Configuration files are virtually no restrictions and the setup is done almost automatically.

VPNSpeed ​​with the routers

The maximum speed over VPN However, due to some limitations also limited, first and foremost, of course, the low power consumption is a factor. But I always have in many tests between 12-29 MBit / s over OpenVPN (Depending on the model) brought together. This is sufficient at home in many cases and on the way in any case a great value. So it can be synonymous with no problems synonymous videos over the Internet streaming and even in mobile use of this small limitation is hardly significant.

My conclusion

The Gl.iNet router are refreshing and at the same time very easy to use wifi routers which can also be used on the go. Sure, you can use it to connect all your devices at home, but to enable a permanent solution at home, I would better go with an ASUS home router because these are more stable in the long term and also have a better range. But that shouldn't spoil the fun you get with the little ones VPNRouters can have. All you need is a small wallet and you have your own small router. It is worth it ..
