TP-Link is the most used wireless router in the world and is used to extend a WAN network to connect multiple devices. Setting up PureVPN on your TP-Link router manually is not a hefty task. We used the TP-Link TL-WR940N (c 3. 16.9 Build 150311 Rel.62186n) for this how-to. There are so many models of TP-Link routers, and so not all of them can be entertained namely Archer C7, AC1750, AC1200 etc. routers. However, this should give you a general idea of how the setup process will be.
