When and will it be added? It's something that this router direly needs to effectively prevent DoS attacks from occuring not to mention basic anonymity/safe gaming in today's world.

It's omission and really the lack of really an VPN provider aside from the garbagio that is HMA is saddening.

Does anyone know or any more capable third party firmware? Or do I just need to go back to Asus Merlin.

Also the Upload spikes issue that Asus routers were suffering from as well has seemingly been corrected on their latest firmware releases - yet we're told here that it's just a thing that's fine and doesn't have any real world effect (it definitely does).

I experience latency spikes in Pingplotter nonetheless

Yes it will be added but I do not know when. That is why we're trying to get a beta version out for users who specifically want it. Will allow use of other VPN providers.

 

I'm not sure what upload spikes you're talking about but if you make a topic regarding it we can take a look. Upload spikes obviously are not ideal.

Upload spikes when running DSLreports test which also register on Pingplotter simultaneously. They're legitimate spikes that are occurring not just some deep packet inspection hoopla that's causing it.

I know this because many of the new Asus routers suffered from the same thing and they've since fixed it.

I definitely want to get my hands on the VPN beta to put it through it's paces.
