@odd Finding a decent, secure, and privacy-focused consumer router is challenging. Want it to look good as well? Then it's a more or less impossible task. 😊
If you're not afraid of tinkering, an Asus router running Asuswrt-Merlin (custom, open-source firmware) strikes a good balance between performance and security. I'm happy with this model at home.
A more pro/high-end alternative is DrayTek. It's almost a decade since I last had a router by them, but I'm sure their current offerings are as well-built as the Vigor 2820 I used back then.
