How to set up a VPN on a Asus Router

Before we start an active ZoogVPN subscription is required and your device must be connected to the Internet.

Asus Router OpenVPN Installation

OpenVPN is an open-source VPN protocol that makes use of virtual private network (VPN) techniques to establish safe site-to-site or point-to-point connections.

 

Step 1 – Log in to the control panel

First, you need to log in to the control panel of your Asus router. You can do that by typing 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of your browser. A window will pop up, asking you to enter your username and password. Unless you have changed your credentials, the default username is admin, and the default password is admin

Once you have logged in to the Control Panel, select VPN in the left sidebar menu. 

Step 2 – Open VNP Client

Click on the VPN Client tab at the top of the page.

Step 3 – Add profile

Click on the Add profile button at the bottom of the page.

 

Step 4 – Set up a connection

In the pop-up window, select the OpenVPN tab and fill in the fields:

Description: you can give the connection any name you like

Username: your ZoogVPN service username

Password: your ZoogVPN service password

Auto reconnection: yes

Step 5 – Download Configuration Files

Now you need to Download OpenVPN Configuration Files according to your VPN Plan. Unzip the archive file and save the folder.

Alternatively, you can download the server configuration you need separately via this link.

Step 6 – Import Configuration Files

Once you have downloaded the files, go back to the control panel of your router and click Choose File in the “Import .ovpn file” section

Navigate to the configuration file you have just downloaded and click Open.

Click Upload. You should see the message Complete! when the file has been uploaded successfully.

Leave the box next to “Import the CA file or edit the .ovpn file manually” unchecked and click OK.

In the VPN Client tab, you will see the created connection. Click Activate to connect your router to ZoogVPN.
