I am looking for a router that can connect to NordVPN through TCP and provides the best trade-off between portability and throughput.
I must use TCP VPN (and thus no Wireguard) because the country I am in blocks all UDP traffic unfortunately. I would connect either by ethernet when at home & Airbnb and by Extender mode at hotels & cafes.
I already have a bigger ASUS AX-3000 router that does the job and connects to TCP with ~30Mbps throughput, but am looking for something more lightweight and portable for my travel. Ideally, just charging it by USB-C to my laptop and not too many cables/not too large to carry around.
I have seen both the Opal and Creta could be appropriate and would appreciate any additional advice!
