How To Set Up OysterVPN With OpenVPN on a Netgear Router

Unfortunately, Netgear routers do not support setting up VPNs; you can only use the router as a VPN server to create your own private network. However, flashing custom firmware like DD-WRT and Tomato enables VPN support.

You’ll need a Netgear Router and an active OysterVPN subscription to start the setup process. If you don’t already have a subscription, click here to subscribe.

  1. First, check your router’s compatibility on DD-WRT and Tomato’s websites.
  2. Follow the tutorial for your router to flash the custom firmware.
