Hy, i want to buy a openwrt capable router for my mom. It has to act as a vpn client connecting to my vpn provider. (2nd Vpn client on demand connecting to me(optional))
Her connection speed is ~32Mbits down and 4,5 Mbits up
There are 2 PC clients (mom and brother) and their 2 Smartphones, 1 SmartTV (ETH - rarely used) and 1 Chromecast (Wifi - local stream only)
She needs 3 Eth ports (Gateway, MomPC, TV)
5Ghz wifi would be nice
Archer C7 fits those requirements but i don't know it its fast enough since encryption is cpu heavy and it only clocks at 750Mhz. I really don't want to lose half her bandwidth since its bad enough already.
also i just read on mullvads page that openvpn on openwrt has a bug and i have to repeat steps everytime router gets restarted.
Is that a thing? if so openwrt would be no option. i can't do 24/7 techsupport therefore the machine has to survive a restart. https://mullvad.net/de/help/openwrt-routers-and-mullvad-vpn/
Well not directly mistyped, my "should" just should have been read as "may can" I achieved in the past 24Mbps with Openvpn on my C7 so thought it might be able to go a bit higher (depending on the encryption algorithm).
But yes, wireguard is the way to go when you want to reach 32Mbps without a burning CPU.
