Can I set up Netgear router with VPN

Netgear is one of the most popular router manufacturer brands. Netgear routers provide great Wi-Fi connection, however, these routers cannot perform as OpenVPN clients.

In case you have a Netgear router, check if your router supports DD-WRT firmware here. If it does, you can flash your router with it. More information on how to install this firmware can be found here.

Note: If you decide to flash your router, you do so at your own risk. Flashing may potentially damage your router and void the warranty, so we cannot help you with the flashing process.

Once done, you can follow our tutorial on how to connect to the NordVPN service with DD-WRT firmware.

If you run into any issues, make a screenshot of your router’s VPN configuration page along with the connection log, which can be found under the Status > OpenVPN tab, and send this information to us using the email or chat buttons below the article.

If you want an out-of-the-box solution that offers NordVPN’s security and privacy, head over to our partners at FlashRouters. They will provide you with a pre-configured router that will deliver top-notch security and performance.
