    I have a netgear Nighthawk R8500 Router and there i can not find this menu point. I have only the menu point VPN Service. But here i can not see how i can define the purevpn service.

        It seems that I have run into a similar issue. The instructions provided must be for an earlier version of the netgear genie.
