    I was pleasantly surprised by how fast I was able to configure by router, so far its working great

    Hi jl, did you find a better way of doing this as I’m guessing by using this method that I cannot set up a tunnel?

  3. PureVPN Team says:

    We are sorry for the inconvenience. This is the standard method of configuring any VPN on router but we will try our best to optimize it in future if possible…

    Thanks for understanding!

    This is an awful way to setup the VPN service as it requires to modify the WAN configuration instead of just having a VPN service that can easily be activated/deactivated depending on the requirements.
