Hi - I have a particular problem to solve...

 

I need a bit of kit that will attach via ethernet cable or WiFi to an existing router/WAP, establish a VPN over that connection, and then provide a new WiFi SSID that other devices can connect to and access the VPN.

 

The catch is I want the VPN to be something like ExpressVPN or CyberGhostVPN or a known safe VPN to the internet.

 

Can I do this with a Raspberry PI or something similar, or are there boxes out there for this sort of stuff. Small is nice.

 

Gracias

Is this a home or business class network? The reason I ask is that your demarcation points are different depending on the type of internet connection you have coming into the building. So again I ask is the residential or business class internet?

Hi - This is a domestic network but no access to the router, i.e. just the same as if you were in a coffee shop or airport...

 

Thanks

So this is a residential or home type of internet connection is that correct? Also, you do not have physical access to the router? So you wish to establish a wireless bridge between the router, and the device you are looking for?

" just the same as if you were in a coffee shop or airport"

and

"I need a bit of kit that will attach via ethernet cable or WiFi to an existing router/WAP, establish a VPN over that connection, and then provide a new WiFi SSID that other devices can connect to and access the VPN."

 

You want a wifi router with wan vpn connection.  Something like this:
