Don’t worry if you can’t set up PureVPN on your device directly. You can now do it by setting up the VPN on the router first. If you are using a D-Link DIR-809 router, here’s how you can configure PureVPN on it using the PPTP protocol.

1 To start set up VPN on the D-Link router you first have to connect to it. For that, you have to put in your browser the following address: http://192.168.0.1 (If this doesn’t work, please consult your router’s manual to find what is the Default Gateway Address). Enter your router’s password and click ‘Log In’ Once logged in, select the ‘Internet’ option from the left-side menu.

2 Then select the “Manual Internet Connection Setup” option.

3 Under the ‘Internet Connection Type’ set the Internet Connection to “PPTP(Username/Password)” from the drop-down menu.

4 Now enter the following information.

  • Address Mode: Dynamic IP
  • PPTP Server Address: (Enter the IP address of the VPN server you want to connect to in this field. Click here on how to convert server address into IP address)
  • Username: (Enter the PureVPN username. purevpn0sxxx)
  • Password: (Enter the PureVPN password)
  • Verify Password: (Enter the PureVPN password)
  • Reconnect Mode: AlwaysOn
  • Primary DNS Server: 8.8.8
  • Secondary DNS Server: 8.4.4
  • MTU: 1460
  • Once you have entered all the information, click on the “Save Settings” button to activate the VPN connection.

5 PureVPN is successfully connected now on your D-Link DIR-809 router.
