This guide will help you set up a VPN connection on an Asus router with the basic original firmware using the OpenVPN and PPTP protocols.

Most Asus routers are already configured to work with VPN, so you won't need to install any additional firmware.

Tested router models: Asus RT-N16, Asus RT-N18U, Asus RT-N66U, Asus RT-AC66U, Asus RT-AC68U, Asus RT-AC87U, Asus RT-AC3200.

If you're looking to buy a router and you want to be able to configure it to use a VPN later without any difficulties, pay close attention to the specifications. VPN support should be listed there among the other functions. Here's an example of such a router.

Now let's look at the settings:
Preparatory stage

During the preparatory stage, you need to set up the basic configuration for your router. You'll only need to do this once. You won't need to change these settings again in the future.

Configuration for all routers begins by accessing its control panel. To log in to your Asus router go to http://192.168.1.1/ and log in.

Information about the username and password is located on the back of the router. This is usually admin/admin, and we recommend that you change your password to a more complex one in the future.

First step: go to the Internet section, which is located in the navigation menu on the left, or click on this link: http://192.168.1.1/Advanced_WAN_Content.asp

Set the following parameters:

  • WAN connection: Automatic IP
  • WAN, NAT, and UPnP: Yes
  • Connect to the DNS server automatically: No
  • DNS-server 1: 1.1.1.1
  • DNS-server 2: 8.8.8.8
  • DHCP query frequency: Aggressive Mode

Press  Apply to save settings.

Second step: go to the  IPv6  section: http://192.168.1.1/Advanced_IPv6_Content.asp

  • Connection type: Disable.
  • Enable router ads: Disable

Press  Apply .

This is all you need to do during the preliminary stage. Now choose the VPN connection option: PPTP/L2TP is simpler, OpenVPN is a little more complicated.

PPTP / L2TP

Go to the VPN section, then the VPN Clienttab at the top, or click on this link: http://192.168.1.1/Advanced_VPNClient_Content.asp

Now add a profile. Click the  Add profile  button at the bottom, and a window will appear with the following fields: Description, Server, Name and Password.

To continue setting up your account, you will need an access code to our service.
You'll receive one after making a 'payment, or you can request a trial period.

  • Description:
  • Server:
  • Username:
  • Password:
  • IPSec (PSK): incloaknetwork

After filling in all the fields, click  OK . A new row will appear, and the  Connect  button will appear on the right. Click it, and if the connection is successful, a check mark will appear on the left.
When you've successfully connected, check whether your IP address has changed.

OpenVPN

Note right away that setting up OpenVPN is a little more complicated than PPTP / L2TP, but the difference is just a few more minutes of your time.

Go to the VPN section, then the VPN Client tab at the top, or follow this link: http://192.168.1.1/Advanced_VPNClient_Content.asp

Now add a profile. Click the "Add profile" button at the bottom, and the OpenVPN tab will appear;.

To continue setting up your account, you will need an access code to our service.
You can get one after making a payment, or after requesting a trial period.

After loading the configuration file, click  OK .

A new row will appear in the table, and on the right, click the  Connect  —button. If connection is successful, a checkmark will appear on the left. When connecting successfully, check whether your IP address has changed.

This guide will help you set up a VPN connection on a TP-Link router with the basic original firmware using the PPTP and L2TP protocols.

Most TP-Link routers are already configured to work with VPN, so you won't need to install any additional firmware.

If you're looking to buy a router and you want to be able to configure it to use a VPN later without any difficulties, pay close attention to the specifications. VPN support should be listed there among the other functions. Here's an example of such a router.

Now let's look at the settings:
Router control panel

Configuration for all routers begins by accessing its control panel. To log in to the TP-Link router, go to http://192.168.1.1/ or http://192.168.0.1/, and log in.

Information about your username and password can also be found in the instructions, or on the back of the router. This is usually admin/admin, and we recommend that you change your password to something more complex.

PPTP / L2TP

Go to Network, then  WAN .

Now let's configure the connection. At the top of the page, select  PPTP/PPTP Russia from the drop-down list. The fields below will be: username, password, server address.

To continue setting up your account, you will need an access code to our service.
You can get one by making a payment, or requesting a trial period.

  • Description:
  • Server:
  • Username:
  • Password:
  • IPSec (PSK): incloaknetwork

After filling in all the fields, clickSave at the bottom of the page.
Scroll to the top of the page and click Connect.
Once you've connected successfully, check whether your IP address has changed.

This guide will help you set up a VPN connection on any router that supports this feature.

In the router settings, there should be a section called "VPN", or "VPN client" and the option to choose a protocol, it can be: PPTP, L2TP, or OpenVPN.

If you're looking to buy a router and you want to be able to configure it to use a VPN later without any difficulties, pay close attention to the specifications. VPN support should be listed there among the other functions. Here's an example of such a router.

Now let's look at the settings:
Preparatory stage

Configuration for all routers begins by accessing its control panel. How to get to this panel is specified in the router instructions, and can be located at http://192.168.1.1/, http://192.168.0.1/, or something similar. After getting to the correct address, the browser will ask you for your username and password.

Information about your username and password can also be found in the instructions, or on the back of the router. This is usually admin/admin, and we recommend that you change your password to something more complex.

PPTP / L2TP

Go to Network, then  WAN .

Now let's configure the connection. At the top of the page, select  PPTP/PPTP Russia from the drop-down list. The fields below will be: username, password, server address.

You could get one after making a payment, or requesting a trial period.

  • Description:
  • Server:
  • Username:
  • Password:
  • IPSec (PSK): incloaknetwork

After filling in all the fields, save them, and then click connect.
Once you've connected successfully, check whether your IP address has changed.

OpenVPN

Note that OpenVPN supports significantly fewer routers by default than the more familiar PPTP and L2TP. However, if you find a section of the same name in your router's control panel, then you will most likely be able to successfully configure it to work with this protocol.

To continue setting up your account, you will need an access code to our service.
You can get one after making a payment, or requesting a trial period.

The archive contains configuration files in .ovpn format. They already contain certificates and keys. Upload them to the router settings. The username and password fields are not required, so leave them empty.

A little more about our router VPN

Installing our service on a router is slightly different to installing it directly on other devices. To protect your entire home network at once, use the settings that you'll receive after entering the access code.

Please note that before you sign up for a paid subscription, you can enjoy a free 24-hour trial period.

The router VPN works on both Wi-Fi and Ethernet cable connections.
Connecting to a VPN provides:
  • unrestricted access to sites that are blocked or unavailable in your country;
  • complete confidentiality of network activities — all traffic goes through the IP addresses of our servers;
  • security for your passwords, transmitted data and online correspondence.

Due to the fact that we support a very large number of servers, each one has a light load. This therefore means a fast and stable VPN connection is established on routers for all users.
