Probably an Asus? IF they carry them, that is. Otherwise, a Linksys 3200X or whatever the updated WRT-looking AC3200 Gaming router is, that accepts 3rd-party firmware. You're going to want 3rd-party firmware, to run a decent VPN setup.

Or maybe a Tenda or Jetstream @ Walmart?

Edit: This one. Then put on FreshTomato 'VPN' firmware.

Buy electronics elsewhere, use this for target-y type items.
Target actually has a pretty good selection of routers, if you use their website. They use 3rd party stores now. Prices are a tad higher than Newegg or Amazon, but not too bad. This Asus is supported by both DD-WRT & Fresh Tomato.
