5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little VPN router for console gaming!
By SJP on 14 April 2022
This tiny little GL.iNET GL-MV1000 (Brume) VPN router is absolutely brilliant!

Intended usage: I am using this VPN router as a more elegant and power efficient means of providing my gaming consoles with VPN connectivity to the Internet. I get DDoS'ed from toxic GTA Online players from time to time (Destiny too, back when I played it), so I wanted to hide my IP from them to avoid those DDoS attacks and also because my static IP on my home FttB connection serves my personal/work email server, the domain of which is revealed with a reverse lookup of my static IP.

I don't want to be DDoS'ed anymore and I don't want toxic people knowing my business domains.

Actual usage: In testing this VPN router with the Wireguard enabled MULLVAD VPN service, with both of my Playstation 4's connected one on each LAN port of this router, I had no problem being connected to full and very active GTA Online sessions (25-32 players). I could not notice any impact to my gaming experience after very many hours of continuous play, with constant connectivity through the VPN to the same session.

Tested performance: For latency (my biggest concern for FPS gaming), Wireguard added 1-2 mS latency to my ping times, so from 14 mS to a local Google IP when connected directly, to 15-16 mS once connected to MULLVAD VPN using Wireguard. So I am super happy with the very slight impact to latency.

Note, that in my testing I found that all Wireguard enabled MULLVAD VPN nodes closest to me, would add around 100mS latency, with the exception of 2 nodes which only added that 1-2 mS latency, so I configured for those fast nodes. As such, your mileage may vary from VPN service to VPN service and even from node to node within any given VPN service, so it may pay to do some testing before you commit to a VPN config!

I've not tried any other VPN service through this little VPN router yet and I did not bother testing the OpenVPN functionality, as I am focused on the much more performant and leaner Wireguard VPN protocol for my online gaming.

I'm curious to see if ExpressVPN's open sourced Lightway VPN protocol (a competitor to Wireguard which also supports AES), will eventually make it into OpenWRT and then into GL.iNET's implementation. I am hopeful for this because the SoC this little VPN router uses contains AES instructions to efficiently accelerate AES crypto. I'd love to see how fast this tiny little screamer could provide high bandwidth and low latency VPN connectivity!

As for bandwidth, on my 90M down / 30M up FttB connection, without being connected to the VPN I get 92 Mbps down and 25 Mbps up (I packet shape my upsteam, leaving lots of breathing room to avoid saturation and give voice, VC, remote desktop and gaming a high priority, which is why I don't see 30M up).

When connected through this VPN router via the MULLVAD VPN service using Wireguard, I got about 86 Mbps down and also 25 Mbps up. So I am also very happy with the slight impact to download bandwidth.

Setup experience: Straight forward firmware update and setup. I did notice one quirk with configuring the MULLVAD VPN service with Wireguard, where a connection could seemingly not be made during the setup (connection error), while confirming the setup was valid, but after backing out of the VPN setup I noticed that the VPN was configured and I was then able to connect to the VPN service without any problem.

Short and Long term support: On the short term support front, I've noticed that GL.iNET have very recent beta and snapshot builds of the firmware for this model, so it seems it is still being supported even though this model is a few years old.

As for long term support, this model appears to be fully supported by the latest versions of OpenWRT, starting with 21.02.0 and including the latest 21.02.2 as I am writing this. So even if GL.iNET dropped support for this model once they deem it End-of-Life, it may still be supported by current versions of OpenWRT proper moving further forward.

Note that the LuCI web interface of OpenWRT is a little more technically involved than GL.iNET's more user friendly web interface implementation.

If you're brave, it seems that OpenBSD could be usable on this device also, but be aware that at this stage the network interfaces may be presented as switch ports, rather than individually addressable network interfaces (hardware wise, it seems they are 3 external interfaces of a single switch, with an internal switch connection to the CPU). So in order to separate them out as routable network interfaces, you may need to configure them into VLAN's, with internal connectivity as a VLAN trunk to the CPU. If none of this makes sense to you, stick with the factory firmware or OpenWRT. :)

Pleasant surprises: Kill Switch (logical) and Mode Switch (physical).

The Kill Switch is a software feature which blocks network traffic between the LAN side and the WAN side, if the VPN is not connected or disconnects. This is useful to prevent you from exposing your IP address and connection to the World, blissfully unaware of the fact that the VPN is down and you're exposed. A handy option to knowingly Fail Closed rather than unknowingly Fail Open!

The configurable hardware Mode Switch is an excellent addition which allows the enabling or disabling of the VPN service at the flick of a switch. Very handy! I had been planning on creating VPN polices to only allow VPN usage based on IP addresses and then I would simply change my Playstations static IP address depending on whether I wanted to use the VPN service or not, but thanks to this elegant switch I did not need to concern myself with that inelegant solution!

Note that the combination of the Kill Switch feature being enabled and the Mode Switch set to VPN OFF, will mean that your devices will have no Internet access at all!

I had hoped that the Kill Switch would only be enforced if the Mode Switch was set to VPN ON, with the thought that if I switch the VPN ON but it does not connect or later disconnects, then the Kill Switch should prevent Internet connectivity because I could be under the false impression that the VPN is connected.

Whereas if I set the Mode Switch to VPN OFF, then I don't have an expectation that the VPN is connected and therefore I should be okay with having direct connection to the Internet without VPN protection.

I realise this behaviour is likely intended and erring on the side of caution if the Kill Switch feature is enabled, but I wish this was configurable.

Reliability: I can't speak to the reliability or durability yet, as I just got this today. However it does get quite warm, so I would suggest buying it with the wall mount bracket which is available for it, in order to assist with convective cooling by mounting this router vertically with nothing flush against the bottom or top cooling vents.

I noticed from photographs someone online took of the internals, that this unit does appear to have decently large heatsinks on both sides of the PCB, so it might be fine for thermal management without this, but since I live in a warm part of the World I'm playing it safer for cooling with vertical unobstructed mounting.

GL.iNET: As a network admin, I'm surprised I have not come across this brand yet. From the looks of it, it seems they make solid devices, so I think I will come back to them in the future for other needs.

In the past I would buy Cisco Meraki, Ubiquiti, Linksys, etc, routers and wireless access points and replace their firmware to maximise and prolong their value, with OpenWRT or sometimes in the case of Ubiquiti with OpenBSD for their routers and OpenWRT for their WAPS. But this sometimes would mean I am taking some risk in hoping to get a compatible firmware which allows jailbreaking them, without blowing a device-bricking-fuse in the SoC (Cisco MR33!!!) and sometimes would require opening those units up and soldering on some RS-232 and/or JTAG connections to get the job done.

But with GL.iNET, it seems they design their units around OpenWRT, so win win for the tinkering consumers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very fast OpenVPN and WireGuard client
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 6 June 2020
Amazing VPN client performance from such a small device. A perfect way of linking a remote site back to a VPN server. The attached image shows the 140Mbit/s download speed attained over a Virgin 200Mbit/s between the Brume and an N40 miniPC running WireGuard-Go. In comparison I could only achieve 50Mbit/s when using OpenVPN. Bear in mind though that performance is determined by the Brume/N40 combination not just the Brume.

The Brume has its own in-built DHCP server (default IP range 192.168.8.0/24) meaning that you can connect several devices at a remote site via the Brume using your preferred VPN protocol. You will need a network switch or WiFi access point if you have more than two devices as there are only two local Ethernet ports. The Brume supports many popular commercial VPN OpenVPN and WireGuard providers with preset configurations for each provider. Client set-up is relatively easy. For WireGuard you can input all the details using a form or, slightly more tricky, using JSON format. For OpenVPN you need to prepare an inline format OpenVPN client file and drag and drop it onto the Brume window. Diagnostics for any mistakes are very limited; if the config doesn't work you have to go back to reference manuals to see what is wrong.

The Brume also has a server function but I was not impressed by the server seeming only to offer SHA1 for authentication rather than SHA256 and the Blowfish BF-CBC cipher which is known to be hackable and not recommended. At least this was the cipher specified in the generated client configuration. Given the power of the Brume and capability to handle AES-256 ciphers it seems remiss to offer this deprecated cipher and not be able to change it.

<b>Update:</b> I've now looked at the server in more detail and despite what is says on the GUI configuration page, it doesn't use Blowfish at all. It uses the far more secure AES-128/256 ciphers with TLS 1.2 and 1.3 which are visible when logging in using SSH. I have spoken to GL-iNet and they will be updating the GUI so kudos to them for the rapid response.

Overall, strongly recommended as a very small and portable OpenVPN or WireGuard VPN client and potentially also as a OpenVPN/WireGuard server.
