Will my router support a VPN?

Most, if not all, modern routers will support a Virtual Private Network or VPN.

It is possible to find free VPN clients but they often lack basic security measures or have hidden marketing tactics to justify an upfront cost of nothing.

You may need to configure your router before you can set up a private network.

It’s also advisable to download the latest firmware for your router. When you’re ready to go, you will need the IP address of the network you wish to connect to.

Older routers and hardware may not be capable of running VPNs with OpenVPN, which offers better security and faster connection speeds.
