I would like to run a VPN such as NordVPN on a router so it is system wide on my network and not just per device. How would I go about doing this? I only have the router that BT have supplied me with which is a Smart Hub. What router should I buy that can be used simply for this purpose and would that router be compatible with BT? And would I require a separate modem?
Thanks for any help and suggestions.

You can use any modem/router that is compatible with the type of service you have. If you have FTTP, you will only need a router as the ONT is the modem. If you have G.Fast, your options are very limited, probably go with the Asus DSL AC88U as a combined modem/router. For ADSL and VDSL, you have multiple choices of device.
All of the tutorials on the internet show that you have to install firmware onto a router before you can use a VPN client. Are there any ADSL routers that work out of the box without having to install any firmware?
No idea about VPNs, I can only advise regarding suitability of routers for your service. There are probably better forums for getting advice on using a VPN on a router.
