    Long story short: been fed up with my ISP sending me notices about torrents and/or streaming and what not.
    So, looking to get a VPN to finally rest for a bit.

    I hear PIA (PrivateInternetAccess) is a good company so may give them a shot.

    Have a Netgear Nighthawk R7000 and Merlin Custom Firmware installed on it.
    Can it be possible to set an VPN with PIA and run things smoothly?

    Been reading that the R7000 can only set up OpenVPN but with Merlin you have more options.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Yes you can use PIA service with an r7000 with merlin in it.

    Smoothly will depend, pia service speed (out of your hands) it will also depend on what speed you get from your isp because the r7000 might not be able to handle it.

    Thanks for your reply good sir.
    I was able to set it up successfully but as you said, speed seems to be lagging.

    Wonder if there's anything I can do to improve it.
