All very true indeed. In my, obviously limited, experience however running and maintaining a DNS server on one's laptop goes beyond what most users are willing to invest in terms of learning, time and energy. As running a poorly maintained server on a laptop is more likely to raise issues than to solve them, I chose to leave that part to other, dedicated pieces.

And as far as "home" VPN routers go, some do exist indeed but most of them still are quite expensive and there are questions of compatibility between vendor-specific services. I do agree however nothing replaces such a setup and this is a point I attempted to repeatedly stress.

I hope this answers your concerns,
