What's a good wireless router to have for sharing media between devices?
Also, is it a standard feature in routers to be able to connect to a VPN? (Sorry if that sounded really stupid...I'm dumb when it comes to networking) I want my router to be able to connect to a VPN (if possible) so that I may enjoy Netflix, Hulu, and all the American media goodness on my devices. Also, I'm too lazy to set up a VPN connection for each device I have.
Lastly, range isn't an issue for me since I live in a tiny room. I pretty much just want my different devices to be able to speak to each other.
Thanks for your suggestions!
As far as I know you cannot configure your router to connect to another VPN. You would need to set up your computer. Configuring a PS3 and Vita are bit more of pain to set up for use with a VPN but the iPad will have VPN options under the network settings tab.

Usually, when you are setting up a VPN, you are going through a router. I'm not sure how you would go about hooking one up to a VPN, I'm curious to understand why you are trying to hook up a router to a VPN though, that may give people a better understanding of what the problem is.
I want to connect the router to a VPN so I can watch Hulu, Netflix, etc. on my devices without having to configure each device to connect to a VPN. I'm currently using Hide My Ass VPN service and there are instructions on how to connect a DD-WRT router to their VPN. With that info, I thought some routers might have that functionality built in.
