I have already read the relevant information in the “sticky” posts on this topic.
Looking over Shibby’s router list for routers that are compatible with the VyprVPN app, I notice two problems - or at least this is what I see here in Moscow Russia while I am abroad.
- It is virtually impossible to find routers that are on the list and are of a type that will accept firmware that will work with VyprVPN
- Of those routers that I can find, the firmware/hardware versions marked as supported are long since gone from the market.
An example of item #2 is the ASUS RT-N12 router. Shibby’s site mentions that his firmware supports H/W versions “B1”, “C1”, and “D1”. However, the only version of the ASUS RT-N12 router here have the hardware version “VP”.
I can find the ASUS RT-AC66U, though I don’t know if the current H/W version will work with Shibby’s firmware. With a list price at most every electronic store here in Moscow on the wrong side of $300, I hesitate to buy it just to risk bricking it. Not to mention the fact that this particular router does everything but wash dishes and make breakfast - and I don’t need that.
Most of the routers here are either ASUS routers that are not “approved” - or have hardware versions that are later than the listed ones - or are T-Link / Zyrtech routers - none of which appear on the list anywhere.
Does anyone know of a more current list of routers that do work with either Shibby’s firmware flash, or can work with VyprVPN out-of-the-box?
Can anyone recommend which router - assuming I can get it, either retail or on-line - is the best choice - i.e. which works with the least hassle and/or the greatest chance of success?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
