VyprVPN OpenVPN Setup for DD-WRT

VyprVPN Free accounts are limited to using our Desktop, and Mobile applications to connect to our VPN service. Please see "What is VyprVPN Free?" for more information.

Prior to configuring this setup, you will need to flash your router with the latest OpenVPN-capable build of DD-WRT. You can find your router and appropriate build by searching the DD-WRT database: http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/support/router-database

We do not offer assistance with flashing routers. If you need help, please consult the DD-WRT forums or DD-WRT wiki page of your make and model of router. Forums: http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/

Please note: We offer limited support for this configuration due to many variables that can cause connection or performance issues. This firmware is open-source with many versions and a growing list of supported hardware. We cannot guarantee VyprVPN's performance or functionality on your router.

These instructions utilize OpenVPN 160-bit encryption to optimize speeds as we have found this to be the best performing setup for DD-WRT.
