Hello all,

I'm looking for a VPN provider to encrypt my communications. My main
objective is to get secure communications while being able to search on
the web, read and create content and, most of all, can get my IM/IRC
traffic secure.

Most of all IRC & IM for a good majority of common services use SSL to
encrypt traffic. I don't know what you use for a IRC client but Irssi
has a -ssl connect/server switch to connect to those servers that have
it configured already and if they don't then you should take it up with
their operators. As for IM your traffic is subject to the operating
server either find a service that is encrypted or route it through Tor
but ultimately like others have pointed out, services like MSN, some
jabber servers etc... have be served with a warrant or other means to
get your traffic anyway.

Anyway to sum it up shortly, SSL is your best bet but limited to
policies of where your connecting.

Any suggestions?

I've seen some providers - like HideMyAss, SwissVPN, etc - and i'm
looking for the best security with the lower price :)

SecurityFocus has a VPN mailing list you could probably find better
support there for DD-WRT. I also believe DD-WRT has some forums that
could help out quite a bit too.

Personally I use vpnc and a combination of racoon on FreeBSD through a
DD-WRT router accross a Catalyst 2950 Switch. The DD-WRT I have is a
little neutered have only a small amount of ram so it is not as
functional as the rest since I cannot add any packages and such so I
depend on other means.

Good luck
