ddwrt-for-web

Welcome to HideIPVPN. This tutorial will guide how to setup OpenVPN connection using you DD-WRT router.

Important: We presume that you already flashed your router with DD-WRT firmware and your DD-WRT router local IP address is 192.168.1.1 and your first router has different LAN subnet, for example 192.168.0.1. When you connect to this router via wi-fi you have internet, we also presume that you have already tested VPN on your PC/Mac to ensure that your network configuration and ISP allow OpenVPN connection.

Important: OpenVPN can NOT be used concurrently with PPPoE or Static IP if you use DD-WRT flashed router as main router. We recommend you to use DD-WRT flashed router as the second one.

Connect to the router using either an Ethernet cable, or by joining the wireless network ‘dd-wrt’. Open a web browser, and load the following address: http://192.168.1.1 Note, first set your network connection to obtain IP address automatically if you connect to your router via Ethernet.

Configure your DD-WRT router to share your regular internet connection.

1. Go to Security (1) and select Firewall (2).  Make sure SPI Firewall is enabled (3).
