I see why.

Now make a normal network without the VPN and as plain as can be using a normal router. You've gone far off the beaten path.

The setup you have

In reply to: But the vpn

Will not assure you of that. VPNs do not stop DOS attacks. I'm just someone that wrote router code in the 90's so my view is pretty solid on that topic.

VPNs are for other reasons like Geo-location switching and other reasons but will not stop a DOS attack once they found your ISP's assigned IP address.

I don't have your setup particulars but the number of folk losing their mind trying to use Windows as a hotspot makes me write "don't bother." It's not reliable enough except for when you just need it and it works OK for the time you need it. In your case, it's a dead end.
