    About 17,500 to 18k for a 2-pack.

    Hi. Is there a way, I can install VPN on my wifi router (provided by telco) so that all my devices connected on the network can enjoy virtual private network?

    Probably not using the telco-provided router. You can have it changed to bridge mode and purchase a separate router to do the VPN. The model of the router depends on the VPN service that you plan to avail.

    For me, I'm using StrongVPN. They have provided a list of supported/compatible routers that can connect to their VPN service.

    To give you an idea:
    1. Go here: https://strongvpn.com/vpn-routers-new/
    2. Scroll down to "Choose the Best VPN Router for Your Home"
    3. Immediately below that, you'll see two tabs; "Preloaded Routers" and "DIY Routers".

    Pre-loaded routers are routers that they have pre-converted and deemed ready for use. If you're in the PH, you're probably better off choosing the 2nd option, which is DIY.

    4. Clicking on "DIY Routers" will display all the supported router brands and models (in tabs). If you decide to choose StrongVPN, I highly recommend that you only purchase routers in that list, which have been proven to work correctly with their service.

    FWIW, I use a Buffalo WZR-HP-AG300H. I use it only as my VPN gateway. It's WiFi is turned off and I still have a separate firewall for regular internet traffic.
