Instructions.


Open a web browser, and navigate to the home screen of your DD-WRT router (192.168.1.1 by default)


1) Under SETUP/BASIC SETUP go to the bottom of the screen and in the 'time settings' box, ensure that NTP CLIENT is enabled, and set to the correct time zone.


2) Navigate to  SERVICES / VPN,  and enter the config as shown in Fig 1 below. For this example, we have chosen the USA Server. You can enter any server from the list below depending on what Services you wish to use.



Servername  Use for
usa.vanishedvpn.com
Unblocking US content (Netflix, Hulu, Starz, Vudu, Sling TV, NBC etc)
sport.vanishedvpn.com 
EPL, F1, Cricket, Sling TV
uk.vanishedvpn.com
Unblocking UK content (BBC iPlayer, ITV.com, NOW TV, Sky GO, Channel 4 etc)
 aus.vanishedvpn.com Secure browsing, Access to Aus channels while travelling outside Australia (Foxtel Go, Plus 7, 9 Now, Ten Play)
p2p.vanishedvpn.com
P2P & Bit Torrent - These servers are based in a location where the laws on Bit Torrent are liberal. Bit Torrent is disabled on all other servers.



3) In the username & password fields, you should enter the username (your email address) and password which were sent to you by email when you registered (copy and paste as they are case sensitive).

If you don't see a username and password field on this screen, then go to these instructions (which cover earlier versions of DD-WRT).

Click 'Apply settings'


5) Under Administration / Management , click the reboot router button

 

6) When the interface returns, you can check if the VPN is running by navigating to STATUS / OPENVPN


You should see 'CONNECTED : SUCCESS' in the 'state' box at the top of the screen. You may need to refresh this page if the connection is being established.


If you don't see anything on the status screen, navigate back to SERVICES / VPN  and click on the apply settings button at the bottom of the page. Go back to the SERVICES / VPN page and check the status again. If you still don't see 'CONNECTED : SUCCESS' in the 'state' box at the top of the screen, its time to double check that your config is correct, and try again.

 

7) Once you are successfully connected to the VPN, any device that you configure to use the IP address of this router as its 'router' or 'gateway' will be using the OpenVPN tunnel, and you should be able to access content from unblocked sites (i.e. US Netflix in the example above). To determine the IP address of your DD-WRT router navigate to STATUS / LAN and you will see the address under 'IP Address'. In the example below the router IP address is 192.168.1.200
