Virtual Private Network is a technology that creates a secure path for computers to connect with remote computer networks that would otherwise be inaccessible via the internet.

A VPN Pass Through permits the computers on a private network to launch outbound virtual private networks – a common use case is to use a VPN client to access your office via a pass through VPN connection.

  • For advanced and professional users, the Asus RT-AC68U Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router is worth every penny thanks to its stellar performance, solid build, and bounty of useful features.


  • With record-breaking 802.11ac results, along with the all-round quality of the RT-AC68U and advanced setup options, Asus deserves recommendation for power users. Although we wouldn't buy an Asus router just for the AiCloud feature, it's far from useless, and another string to the bow of the RT-AC68U, which is an all-round excellent networking product.


  • Recently we've seen a number of manufacturers release follow-ups to their debut 802.11ac routers, but Asus is the only one so far to make a true generational step up. Virtually everything has been upgraded and the combination of blistering speed, smart new design, masses of functionality and far greater horsepower has raised the bar for the competition. We'd still like to see AiCloud offer full remote access to router controls and the RRP is high, but right now there is no better router on the market.


  • The Netgear is expensive, but earns its $200 asking price with incredibly fast speeds and useful features.


  • Excellent throughput and range at the 5GHz band, lots of features (including full VPN)?plus a cool name?all make the Nighthawk one of the best routers we've seen from Netgear in a while, despite a few annoyances.


  • The D-Link DIR-868L delivers as an advanced 802.11ac-enabled home router despite its underwhelming mobile apps and usage inflexibility.


  • As the first AC1750 router using Broadcom's more powerful second-generation router SoC, the DIR-868L has a bit of an edge in storage sharing throughput over products using the first-gen BCM4706. The USB 3.0 port certainly contributes to that storage sharing throughput advantage.

    But folks really pay the big bucks for AC1750 routers for the higher wireless throughput they are supposed to provide.


  • D-Link's newest pre-draft 802.11ac router, the Wireless AC1750 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router (DIR-868L) does not deliver performance as powerful as some competing routers, but it's an improvement over D-Link's previous 11ac router.


  • With the AirStation Extreme AC1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router, Buffalo steps up its game: The router offers great new management software and good performance. There's a lot to love about this router, but frustrating remote access and mobile management keep it from perfection.


  • The DGL-5500 has a lot of potential, but for now isn't worth its high price.


  • D-Link's DGL-5500 (with a just-released firmware update) offers performance superior to past D-Link 11ac routers. The new Streamboost feature did give video streaming a true boost in testing. However, the refreshed web-based interface needs some enhancements.
