Model: TL-WR841N_EU
Hardware Version: V14
Firmware Version:

I bougth this router as a second router in order to filter all my home devices with my PureVPN subscribtion.

I followed this guide https://support.purevpn.com/how-to-setup-purevpn-manually-on-tp-link-router

and it seem the router is connected to the VPN.


But if i go on any website to verify my public IP, it's still the same, it wasn't hidden and changed.

Sorry to tell you that we cannot open the link mentioned; while for your information, the TL-WR841N cannot work as a VPN server, it supports VPN passthrough, including PPTP/L2TP/IPsec VPN passthrough.


And we have to say that we are not familiar with the 3rd party VPN, we can do some troubleshooting first but we cannot guarantee that we can fix it.

1. What is the current network topology?

2. What is the operation mode of the 841N?

3. How did you setup the pureVPN?

4. More details about the current issue will be better.


Good day.
