Sorry if this is a stupid question, but it's is an area I don't know much about. I'm looking at adding a VPN for some extra security. Probably either ExpressVPN or NordVPN. Both have apps for devices like smart phones and tablets, but I think it'll be a lot easier to just secure the whole house at the modem/router, then just use software when away from home. So my question is, does the SmartRG sr360n support a VPN service, or do I have to buy a new Router and just use the sr360n as a modem? And if I do need to buy a router, what would you suggest. It's a small home and almost everything is wired, so I don't need a powerful or expensive model, just one with simple VPN support. Thanks.

I think the 360/505 are similar, check the .pdf here http://www.start.ca/files/smartrg505n.pdf

Quick answer; You need a separate VPN appliance. The vast majority of these consumer devices support inbound connections only.

You'll also need to subscribe to a service that supports the VPN client in whatever switch you buy.

Easiest to simply configure up a VPN client on each computer, tablet and phone - that's the way I have it set up here - local devices, like servers and printers and still accessible.
