    Seems like PureVPN will not work on Trendnet AC1900 routers. Tried for days with assi assist from PureVPN and they even helped me through Teamviewer… but they couldn’t get it working?
    was claimed that a passthrough must be granted though the cable modem but the same modem works fine with the old Trendnet router and the same setup (see below)? I like the router, it works great so the router stays. But I can’t get PureVPN on my whole house which is why I bought it in the first place. Too bad. I like their product and they were willing to help, just couldn’t pull it off.

    Hi Charlie,

    Thanks for reaching out. You might be using different version of Trendnet than the one above. Now, you can either join us on live chat for assistance OR you can send us screenshots of your Router’s Wan settings page at [email protected] and then we can send you set up guide back.

    Looking forward to hear from you!

    Hi, my trendnet router supports pptp but it isnt the same layout as described above. the server address has to be a IP number ONLY no letters. why is this and how do i set it up?

    Hello, I am trying to setup the WAN settings to use my VPN on a Trendnet TEW-828DRU. I followed the How-To above, but when I hit apply the server address goes blank, and I have no internet connection. All other settings save.

    Not sure what I am doing wrong.

    I removed the username and pw for the screenshot.. I did have them entered when I tried this
