looking for a vpn wireless router at a reasonable price.

By doerther ·
Any suggestions on a wireless router that will handle vpn tunneling? I'm trying to connect my desktop at home with my work network. My router does not accept vpn connections.

Are you the network admin?

Are you the network admin, or are you trying to defeat the security rules your netadmin executes?

Circumventing the security of your office network without a green light from your IT department may not be a good idea.

Besides that, several home-use capacity wireless routers can be "pimped" with a VPN host by means of openwrt or dd-wrt with the right add-ons.

Actually, a router doesn't need to host the VPN anchor in itself. You may set up an RDP host or VPN host on any computer with a fixed ip address inside your network, and then simply configure "port forwarding" / "virtual server" on the router. Just make sure that the protocol or host implementation you choose isn't too weak or already compromised.
