Thumbs up Cisco RV200W

I figured I would add some info instead of just learning. I really like XDA-dev... and go to this site often to solve issues.

I purchased a Cisco rv220w router on sale for the purpose of building a cheap network and VPN for my android (Tablets and HTC one Phones).

I am pretty good at networking so I gave it a try. In less than a day I now have a fully working network to include a VPN server that works.

VPN for all android devices uses PPTP. I know the limits and fully realize that PPTP has issues. However it is working. The VPN is designed for connectivity, not privacy. I want to avoid censorship and wifi sniffing of passwords, etc... My solution after 3 days seems to be working.

Getting other VPN solutions to work with Android seems to be a bridge to far. If there are other VPN protocols that work please let me know and I will try them. I have devices running 4.2, 4.2 and 4.4. I have a few devices running Windows. I will use cisco any connect for windows computers. Not the best but it works.

Any improvements or suggestions are welcome.

I use OpenVPN. Works very well for Android and Macs. There's a client for Android too.

You can download the free OpenVPN image from their website, but it's limited to only 2 users. For my purpose, it works great.

I will try it. Yesterday I had to reboot the router after 3 days of no problem. It kept dropping WiFi to a tablet. I will have to keep an eye on it.
