What about wired devices? Do you have to manually switch the network cable from one router to the other?

I have followed this video point by point. My Netgear R7500v2 works with 2.4 and 5 GHz. The issue comes when I install IPVanish in the router. When I do, my internet connection disappears. I still have both connections but they lose internet capability. Thoughts??

I just found this video, and found it to be excellent in it’s presentation, yes, it can be challenging to set up, use the pause button, to review each phase, and maybe actually, write the basic steps out. Just an observation, while the presenter suggests using PPTP instead of OpenVPN, as it may be easier to configure, PPTTP and L2TP both have inherent security issues well known, so, from a security standpoint, while it may be more difficult to implement, OpenVPN would provide the best security. Now, my question, does this router, or any suggested by the IPVanish team, allow for ACL’s (Access Control List) to be added to the configuration? Reasoning is, if I have an inside client that wants to connect to NetFlix/Amazon Prime, can we add a rule to the route that permits inside client traffic to those destinations without using the VPN?

When you flashed your 1st. file, you received a warning that you were about to install an older version of the file. Why did you do this instead of using the more current version?

Great tutorial. Like to see you do one for R7000 and Tomato with VPN. There isn’t one that is this detailed out there that I have been able to find.

jammor66 says:

Is there a reason you only went with a R7000 router and not a R7500, 8000 or 9000?

Christian Pascua says:

Is this a Mega build? Or a Beta build flash? Thanks

Connor Daniels says:

my router completely shut down after installing the .bin file. After I installed successfully and pressed continue, the router didn’t restart correctly, it stayed dormant for hours and now doesn’t do anything. I’ve triple checked and I’ve definitely run the correct .bin for my router which is the r6400. is my machine completely lost? how do I restart it? the reset button on the back now does nothing and the router doesn’t connect, nothing works anymore.

Igotthatfire03 says:

I appreciate the guide. Set up my VPN router with ease! Keep up the good work!

Keith Hammer says:

I have the netgear Ac1750 (r6400) I see the chk file, but not the bin file? does it use the same r7000 bin file?
