I am looking at setting up a vpn for my network and I know nest wifi doesn’t support vpn protocols. I’m looking for a router I can install vpn on it and not loose any speed but also not breaking the bank. The router will not be connected for wifi use. It will just strictly be for the vpn. Anyone have any suggestions?
Hi again, awp.
So I looked into this a bit deeper and the VPN not playing nicely is a known issue, but it's on the Spotify side. Spotify only supports some locations, so you'll need to ensure your VPN's chosen location lines up with Spotify's accepted regions. Let me know if you have more you need on this.
Good and bad news. I have a Firewalla Gold that I’ve set up between my modem and wifi routers. I have ExpressVPN and then integrate it there. Fast, seamless with my wifi and home wide VPN. I love it. There are a few services however that actively block VPN IPs. It’s not a matter of supporting any protocols or extensions, it’s just internet. I’ve found that Spotify and Nest simply don’t work if I’m at a VPN IP. Incredibly frustrating. All that to say, Firewalla is a great setup, but the services have shady privacy policies and may break them.
