This tutorial will show you how to use the PPTP Protocol to connect your D-Link Router to OysterVPN. You’ll need a D-Link Router and an active OysterVPN subscription to begin the setup process. If you dont currently have a subscription, click here to do so.
To access your router’s Web Configuration Panel, open a web browser and type 192.168.0.1 into the address box. It will prompt you for the Username and Password for your router.
After you’ve entered that information, click “Login.”
The router’s username should be admin without a password by default or admin with both a username and a password. Otherwise, you can find this information on the back of your router or in its ‘User Manual.
Select “Internet” from the “Settings” menu.
Fill in the following details:
My Internet Connection is: PPTP
PPTP Server IP Address: Your desired PPTP VPN server location address. In this case, enter the UK server address. Please click here to visit OysterVPN Complete PPTP server list.
Enter your OysterVPN “Username” and “Password.”
Reconnect Mode: On-demand
Scroll down and fill in the following details:
Address Mode: Dynamic IP
Primary DNS Server: 188.8.131.52
Secondary DNS Server: 184.108.40.206
To connect to VPN, click the “Save” button.
You will be connected in a few moments.
The router may reboot on some D-Link models. If this happens, re-login to the router and go to “Status” before clicking the “Connect” button.
Return to the D-Link management page and select “Disengage” to disconnect from the VPN.
Go to the Internet and select Settings if you want to use the Internet without a VPN connection.
Select Dynamic IP (DHCP) next to “My Internet Connection” and Save settings.
That’s it! You’ve completed the installation and configuration of OysterVPN on D-Link Router using PPTP protocol.
