Example Router Config – Asus
For router config, we recommend FlashRouters who provide either support or pre-configured routers which will work with our VPNs.
Please follow below steps to configure VanishedVPN PPTP on your Asus router.
Before you start, please make sure of the following:
- You have already tested PPTP VPN on your PC/Mac to ensure that your network configuration and ISP allows PPTP connections.
- VPN can’t be setup on the device that acts as your ISP modem. You need to have an additional router connected to your modem.
- Make sure you have network setup as shown in the image below.
This image shows that how your network setup will look like:
Step 1: First you will need to login to your Asus router’s control panel. To do so, type http://192.168.1.1/ in your browser and login. You can find this information on the sticker on the back of your router.
Step 2: In the left-side menu, click on “WAN” under “Advance Settings”.
Under “Internet Connection” tab change “WAN Connection Type” to “PPTP” from the drop down menu.
Apply the following settings:
a. Enable WAN: Yes
b. Enable NAT: Yes
c. Enable UPnP: Yes
d. Get the WAN IP automatically: Yes
Under “WAN DNS Setting”, set “Connect to DNS server automatically” to “No” and insert the following servers: 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199
Step 3: Under “Account Settings”, enter your VPN Username and Password provided by VanishedVPN. Check the email “Message from Vanished VPN” for your login details.
Insert your desired VanishedVPN server address in “VPN Server”. For a list of all servers, see VanishedVPN – Setup Guide.
Step 4: Click “Apply”. You Are Done!
You can check if you are connected to a VPN server by going to www.whatismyip.com and see if your IP is changed.
