Another month brings another competition with it. After our successful Apple TV giveaway, we have decided to bring you something even more exciting – an Asus RT-AC56U courtesy of BlackVPN, and of course an annual BlackVPN account to use with it.
As we state in our review of the AC56U, this is a superb router and will fulfill your home wireless needs. The router itself is running DD-WRT firmware with an additional script so that it’s easier to manage your VPN account on it.
The Advantages of Running a VPN on Your Router
You might already have a VPN account, but have a look at all the great advantages that running a VPN client on your router can offer!
- You can use the VPN with other devices that cannot install a VPN client: such as your Games console, Smart TV, Streaming Device (Roku, Apple TV, etc), and anything else connected to your hotspot
- Use the VPN on all your devices without needing to install or configure a VPN client. Faster, easier, foolproof.
- You can share your VPN connection without needing to share your VPN details. For example someone with AirBnB may want all guests to use the VPN in order to prevent copyright alerts for P2P downloads… by adding a VPN router and allowing guests to connect to it via WiFi or Ethernet they can protect their “normal” internet from any wrong doing by guests.
So with all this in mind, not only will all your devices be protected but you’ll be able to browse your favourite streaming content as well. Watching and streaming endless hours of iTunes, Netflix, Hulu Plus, Youtube, Vevo, ESPN and more will become a breeze. As such, it is an essential part of every household. For this contest, we have partnered up with BlackVPN. BlackVPN offers a great overall protection, as is a most from any serious VPN provider. They offer 3 different packages to choose from and with the Hybrid DNS system you will be able to protect your privacy by being connected to the Netherlands but still watching US Netflix. On the whole, they are a solid choice and with this competition you have the chance to win an annual Global Account.
