I bought a Mango router the GL-MT300N-V2 to use with zgemma h9 combo and yes 10 mb best you can get ended up just going back to using open vpn manager far faster.
But in saying that not a bad wee router you can set up vpn profiles to enable and disable your different connected devices that go through the router vpn.

I used to have liberty shield VPN I cancelled within a month too slow
then i tried surfshark and nordVPN I got speed up to 30-35 mbps on Asus RT-AC88U Router
I also ordered from Currys RT-AC86U £125.
You don't have to put your VM hub into modem mode just connect to the spare ethernet port.
I would go for Asus RT-Ac86u router and Surfshark VPN
NordVPN is too expensive and no better.
I don't recommend Liberty Shield VPN if you decide to go that route then go for pro Router
I have Lite Router in the house doing nothing

Hi yes
Iv ordered liberty pro hopefully will sort my setup out and allow me to get the blockers sorted

I have a GLinet travel router, I get about 12-13 download speed, fast enough for IPTV as long as its only one device connected to it.

I also have the GLinet travel route, I have tried different settings and vpn providers on it, the 10mb limitations is not actually true.
If you use openvpn protocol to setup the device then yes you get approx. 10mb, but most good vpn providers now offer the new protocol WireGuard that the device supports, with this I have got max speed of 45mb.
It not a bad little vpn router and can be connected to existing vm/bt/sky routers without changing anything.. simply connect follow the instructions supplied, add you vpn setup details.

and it can be used in lotts of ways. as a two port switch on ethernet (with or without vpn) as an ethernet enabled wireless bridge (fantastic) it can be used on an android box to connect directly to your router. and you can still connect via wireless to. amazing kit for the money.

I got a liberty shield pro and it is very good for me. I use it with my zgemma h9 twin and connected through ethernet. I test with speedtest plugin and I get 60 Mbits/s download and 25 Mbits/s upload. One thing is that, my test speeds vary along the day. At times I get downloads of 45 or even 35Mbits/s on my libertyshield pro.
This VPN router says its maximum speeds it up to 90Mbits/s though I have never seen those kind of speeds.

Mango routers work very well.

You will not generally get good speed from a commercial VPN.

Mango router is capable of 50mbps if using the correct protocol, from openVPN you will be lucky to get more than 10/15mbps from a Mango

You should only run the devices that are being blocked, adding more devices will slow the Mango down.

Mango should be connected to existing home router, and plugged into mains, you will then see a new WiFi which you connect your Smart Tv to

These little Mango routers are probably the best for the price at the moment, great GUI, easy VPN setup and solid.

Hope that helps

if your only getting 10mbps from your VPN either your provider is throttling your VPN speed or you are using an openVPN protocol

Find a VPN router which uses wireguard, it is 5 times faster
