Old thread dredge: the other half wants to watch tv online from Sweden / Netherlands, so we've finally decided to get a VPN. NordVPN had a good deal so we've gone for that.
Now, we have a Linksys Velop Mesh wifi as our flat, while not huge, has an odd layout with some very substantial internal walls and the signal was woeful at the opposite end of the router. This is not compatible with setting up the VPN on the router, and either is our main Plusnet router (which has the Wifi switched off).
I think what I need is a DSL modem with native VPN support and no wifi. Sounds like it should be pretty cheap and easy to find, but so far I'm not getting lucky - I suppose everybody wants WiFi!
