Set Up VPN Client Internet Access in the Router
By default, the router is set up to allow VPN connections only to your home network, but you can change the setting
to allow Internet access. Accessing the Internet remotely through a VPN might be slower than accessing the Internet
directly.
To allow VPN clients to use your home Internet service:
1.
Launch a web browser from a computer or WiFi device that is connected to the network.
2.
Enter http://www.routerlogin.net.
A login window opens.
3.
Enter the router user name and password.
The user name is admin. The default password is password. The user name and password are case-sensitive.
The BASIC Home page displays.
4.
Select ADVANCED > Advanced Setup > VPN Service.
The VPN page displays.
5.
Select the Enable VPN Service radio button.
6.
Scroll down to the Clients will use this VPN connection to access section, and select the All sites on the Internet
& Home Network
 radio button.
When you access the Internet with the VPN connection, instead of using a local Internet service, you use the
Internet service from your home network.
By default, the Auto radio button is selected, which lets the router use an automatic detection
system that enables VPN access only for necessary services and sites and might not include
full Internet access.
Note
7.
Click the Apply button.
Your settings are saved.
8.
Click the For Windows or For non-Windows button and download the configuration files for your VPN clients.
9.
Unzip the configuration files and copy them to the folder where the VPN client is installed on your device.
For a client device with Windows 64-bit system, the VPN client is installed at 
C:\Program files\OpenVPN\config\
by default.
Block VPN Client Internet Access in the Router
By default, the router is set up to allow VPN connections only to your home network, not to the Internet service for
your home network. If you changed this setting to allow Internet access, you can change it back.
