Setting up your VPN access on DD-WRT compatible routers.
OpenVPN Setup (Pre-Configured Command)
We recommend this setup on all DD-WRT routers. The pre-configured connection settings with this connection type makes the configuration of the OpenVPN connection very easy. If you have any problems with this setup you should try the OpenVPN Client setup connection. Please ensure your router firmware is up to date and has OpenVPN Client installed from Services > VPN.
OpenVPN Setup (OpenVPN Client)
If you have any problems with the OpenVPN Pre-Configured Command setup please try this connection type. OpenVPN Client setup will create a VPNUK connection from any router that has VPN compatible DD-WRT firmware installed. Please ensure your router firmware is up to date and has OpenVPN Client installed from Services > VPN.
You should only use this setup if your DD-WRT router does not have the option to connect to the VPNUK servers over OpenVPN.
