Configuring a PureVPN tunnel on your router is a great way to ensure the safety and security of all the devices in your home. This method is especially beneficial if you have devices that don’t have VPN compatibility or you want to protect all the Wi-Fi-connected devices in your home.

To be able to take advantage of PureVPN across any and all devices via your D-Link router, We used the D-Link DIR 842 (Firmware Version L 2.x) for this how-to. There are so many models of D-Link routers, and so not all of them can be entertained. However, this should give you a general idea of how the setup process will be, here is what you need to do:

Things to Consider:

  1. You have a working internet connection.
  2. VPN Supported Router.
  3. A Premium PureVPN account (If you haven’t bought yet click 👉here to buy)
Find your VPN credentials for manual configuration.

To find your VPN credentials log into the PureVPN member area. Click 👉 here to visit member area.

  • Login to the Member area using your PureVPN registered email address and password.
  • On subscriptions tab scroll down to be able to view your VPN credentials.
  • You will be able to see and copy your VPN credentials.
  • Note down your PureVPN username and click on Eye icon to make your password visible and use it in the manual configuration.

    Thanks for reaching out. You need to connect your additional router to your modem wan port via Ethernet wire.

    Feel free to join us on 24/7 live chat, if you need further assistance!

    Thanks for reaching out. It seems you would like to use “Internet Kill Switch” on your router, if this is the case then we are afraid we do not offer this feature on Router yet. This is only available in our apps.

    Feel free to contact us if you have further questions!

  9. eli says:

  10. chris says:

    greg, were they able to solve your problem? i do have the same issue.

  11. PureVPN Team says:


    I am sorry for the inconvenience. I would suggest you to send us your Router’s Wan settings page screenshots at [email protected] so, we can evaluate your Router’s settings and give you specific instructions. Thanks for understanding!

    • LMJ says:

      Yeah done that 3 times…..and they just sent me back to the online configuration instructions again and again and again!

        We are very sorry that it is taking more time to solve your query than usual, I have personally asked Senior Tech Executive to help you get connected as soon as possible, you have been replied on ticket pls have a look.

        Thanks for being patient!

        • LMJ says:

          Yes and unfortunately it appears that you “do not share IP ranges of our servers with customers as per our policy”…meaning that I will be unable to configure the router.

    Hi Clay,

    I am sorry for the inconvenience. It seems that this issue is related to your IS, so I suggest you should contact your ISP. Meanwhile you can try to connect your computer / laptop via same router and go to command prompt , run command ipconfig and press enter there you will find gateway, enter the same gateway in browser and then check.

    Let me know if I can help you with anything else!

  13. Clay says:

    I am trying to access my DLink router from a wireless connection via my macbook air (no ethernet port). When I try the three admin urls (, 0.1, and http://dlinkrouter/) the request times out and does not load the router. I had previously accessed the router via this route while configuring a different VPN service about 6 months ago. Any idea why I can’t connect? Alternate options?

  14. Nick Mărculescu says:

    Hallo, this procedure is applying to

    WRT1200AC Wireless AC1200 Dual-Band and Wi-Fi Wireless Router with
    Gigabit and USB 3.0 Ports and eSATA?
    Thank you in advance

    I am sorry for the inconvenience. Can you kindly share the error with us so, we can assist you in better way.

  16. PureVPN Team says:

    Sure, join us on live chat, we will be more than happy to assist you!

  17. PureVPN Team says:


    Thanks for reaching out to us. If you are using your router as ISP modem then you cannot configure PureVPN on your ISP modem/router you have to attach additional router to configure PureVPN on it with PPTP connection type.

    Feel free to contact us if you have further question!
