Hi, I was thinking of using a separate DSL modem and router but I think I am just overcomplicating things. It seems the Asus DSL-AC68U is the only contender and it gets great reviews. The only downside is it seems the asuswrt-merlin is not comparable.
The DSL version of the router is only slightly more expensive than the RT-AC68U and makes using separate modem/router not worth it.
The only thing I cant find any information on is using the AC68U for a small office network and connecting remote laptops. How do I set up OpenVPN client to connect to the router.
