    Just to answer my own question, I did buy one of these routers and installed the applet and all works great .

    Thanks for reaching out. If your Router offers either PPTP or OpenVPN then PureVPN should work fine.

    Hope this answers your query, let us know if you need further assistance!

    Hi Nick,

    Thanks for reaching out to us. This procedure also applies to Linksys WRT 1200AC if firmware is DD-WRT.
    If you are facing any difficulty, you can simply send screenshots of your router’s Wan setting page to [email protected] and we will send you step by step guide.

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