Setting up the VPN Client of the Linksys WRT32X

The VPN Client feature allows the Linksys WRT32X AC3200 Dual-Band Wi-Fi Gaming Router with Killer Prioritization Engine to route its traffic through a VPN server.  You will need to import one .ovpn file and then enter a username and password.

Before setting up VPN client, you must have the following:
  • An OpenVPN server configured
  • A VPN profile configured on the OpenVPN server
  • The .ovpn file to upload to the Linksys WRT32X router along with your OVPN credentials
NOTE:  If you do not have an .ovpn file or account credentials, you need to contact the administrator of the OpenVPN server.  If you are the admin of your server, contact OpenVPN.
