I personally love my orbi RBK23 setup. Absolutely fantastic multi-AP mesh system. Has great wifi and has LAN ports as well. If you need it - it does support VLAN's but I would recommend the RBK50 for VLAN's instead. Uses the standard OpenVPN connections. However if you are just looking for a stable connection back to your house, Zero Tier One is a great free option that lets you create a personal network between all your devices.

Will a VPN give me 100 percent anonymous?

depends, if using a router vpn conencted to your homr network, your isp still has your data, but if you use private internet access(lol) or nordvpn, that has a no log policy, there is a higher chance of staying anonymous. Countries outside of the five eyes group like England, US, Canada, etc can spy on you but nord, which is based in panama, is not part of these organizations, so it is more anonymous, but nothing is truly anonymous.

No. First of all the VPN provider can snoop your data. Some say they don't keep logs but you cant be 100% sure on that. Like mentioned above the US and some of its allies share intel. So if you use a provider in those countries there is potentially for laws to be in place that the VPN provider had to keep detailed logs. Secondly, You have to pay for most VPN's. So at the very least your name, address and payment details might be in their system. 

 

With all that being said. A VPN mainly is to protect you from the prying eyes of your ISP. Some ISP's like Comcast for instance has been known to throttle select traffic. Such as steaming, or services like Bit torrent. A VPN creates an encrypted tunnel that the ISP cant look in to. But your data is on encrypted between you and the VPN provider, at some point it pops out the ass hole of the internet somewhere in the world. 

 

Most people use VPN services to get around geolocking of content, such as what Netflix does. OR get around ISP throttling. Ive also VPN's can be useful if your trying to port forward but are on carrier grade NAT.
