Hi all, I am currently running a Netgear Nighthawk X4S Modem/Router as my connection point in the house but have a Netgear R7000 Router which I have just loaded up with DD-WRT and would somehow like to have it integrated into the network so I can access it for VPN purposes over wi-fi occasionally.

 

What would be the best way to set this up, if indeed it can actually be done.

 

Cheers.

If you're wanting to access your home network remotely via VPN then your X4S supports this out of the box. Look at the instructions on setting up OpenVPN.

Is this what you're trying to achieve?

I think OP wants to use a VPN service to access geo-locked content, not to remotely access the home network.

*Ahem* I do believe that is a by-product of the setup.

I see...what exactly are you trying to achieve then?

 

Is it something that cannot be done with a purely DNS-based service?

 

Are you wanting only certain devices or applications traverse your VPN?
