If you're familiar with VPNs and https://ip-locations.org/ you may already be using one from your PC, phone or tablet and have it fully configured from there. One way to use a VPN is just that: set it up individually from each device you want to connect. But you can also leave it installed directly on your router so all your network traffic goes through the VPN without having to configure anything else on the other devices. Want to know how to do it? Perfect! Here's how to install a VPN on a router.

What is a VPN?

A VPN is a virtual private network that allows a user to connect any of their devices to an external server in an encrypted way. When this connection is established, the traffic between this user and the website is completely carried out from this server. This has many advantages in terms of security, privacy and device protection, as well as enabling you to use an IP located in a different country than your own. That's why more and more people are choosing to redirect their connection through a VPN.
Why install the VPN on your router?

ROUTER DIAGRAM IS

If you want to connect several devices at once to the same VPN, it is easier to leave it installed on the router and configure it only once. That way, the rest of your devices - your PC or Mac, your phones, your tablet - will access your router's network normally, without any extra configuration, and will automatically connect to the VPN.

Can you install a VPN on any router?

On most. It depends on the specifications of each router. For this article we have decided to work with the VPN, which especially recommends the ASUS routers, but also works very well with many other manufacturers. Here is a list of routers recommended by

VPN. Do you see yours on the list or do you have another one that allows this kind of configuration? Perfect! Then you can start with the installation.

1. Go to the router login page

The first thing you need to do to install the VPN is to access your router's configuration page. You can do this from your PC or Mac web browser, as long as they're connected to your network via Wi-Fi or LAN cable. Your router's specific address varies by manufacturer, but in most cases it's 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, or 192.168.2.1. If you haven't customized it before, it's probably indicated underneath the device or is simply admin. If you can't get it, you can call your provider's phone number and ask for it.

2. Access VPN options

Did you get the password yet? Perfect. Once you've accessed the router settings, look for the VPN settings. Again, this varies by manufacturer, but you can often find it under 'Advanced Options', as is the case with ASUS routers.

3. Enter your VPN details

Once you have reached the VPN options, enter your VPN server details, including your username and password. These data will be provided by VPN when you have registered in their services. If you still do not have an account with VPN, you can get one on their website.

4. Configure the OpenVPN of the server you want to use

You will then need to download the OpenVPN configuration files for the server you have chosen. OpenVPN is an open source software designed for VPNs that makes it easy to set up for different companies. In the specific case of VPN, you can access their OpenVPN files from this link. You will have to install them by uploading the corresponding .ovpn file in the tab that will indicate your router from its VPN configuration menu.

5. Configure VPN DNS servers

When you have done this, it is time to access the WAN section of your router configuration and enter the DNS servers of your VPN. In the case of VPN, the servers are usually 103.86.96.100 and 103.8699.100, but if you need to know their addresses in a more updated way you can check them in the VPN website.

6. Activate your VPN

If you've followed all these steps, you should have everything almost ready by now. If you go back to your router's VPN settings tab, you'll find a new VPN available for you to activate. As soon as you do so, you'll have your VPN up and running and all traffic between your router and the website will be passing through the VPN encrypted server. And, if at any time you want to deactivate it, you just need to access this menu again and do it.

Do you have any doubt?

Have you had any doubts? Maybe you've had problems at some step or questions that you haven't been able to solve completely. Don't worry! There are always resources to help you solve it.

If you're having trouble finding your router's VPN configuration menu, you can check your router's instruction manual or go to the manufacturer's website. In the case of ASUS, they also have an excellent Online Assistance service that will not hesitate to help you with anything you need.

If you are missing information about your VPN account or your VPN configuration options, you also have a Help Center that will be happy to give you a hand with any questions you may have. At the same time, the tutorials that VPN provides for setting up their VPN can also help you.

Finally, if you have had any difficulty installing the OpenVPN files, you have this extensive support panel where you can consult the most frequent doubts you may have. And, if your question is not listed, you can also request a ticket to contact their support service directly.
