Hello. There was such question:

Need a device (Router), with support for VPN tunnels is more or less stable and preferably not too expensive.


The problem is that you need to connect to VPN and use the Internet, which is connected to a piece of iron (E.g. from the office connect to home and use the cheap Internet).


P. S. OFFICE -> Expensive Internet in the globe, but cheap peering > Router (With VPN) -> Cheapest online

Take the Mikrotik RB750. Is 1600r. The functionality exceeds the similar solutions. I have this piece of hardware is used for Internet distribution for 150 users.

In ascending order of cost/performance
dd-wrt/openwrt-capable -> Mikrotik -> PC
In ascending order of reliability:
dd-wrt/openwrt-capable -> PC -> Mikrotik
In order of ease of configuration (left is harder)
PC -> Mikrotik -> dd-wrt/openwrt-capable
But I still recommend PC — nettop take, to put vyatta — and you have juniper=)

For a start, would be nice to define what You mean by "VPN" — a bunch of options, this pptp, and openvpn, Easy VPN with IPSEC.
Secondly, you should know how the Internet comes to the point "HOUSE(Cheapest online)" if there is white IP, etc.
\r
In the simplest case, as already suggested above, any router with dd-wrt/opеnwrt, with support for openvpn/pptp.
\r
When selecting a router, you should pay attention primarily on the size of memory, because not every firmware wrt with vpn can fit in 16Mb. See the model from 32Mb.
\r
The perfect option for You to find out for themselves what is at the nearest points of sales (of the model), then to go to a website, for example, dd-wrt (http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/support/router-database), to drive the model, read about the possibilities of firmware, read reviews, and decide.
\r
I suggest you look to LinkSYS — the ratio quality/price perfect.
\r
If you search well, for a reasonable price, you can buy a used cisco 800 series, there and flash third-party firmware is not necessary, and "cisco" as as.
