@k00lrunningz 

 

As confirmed by jimas, are you requiring a VPN server or client setting on the Archer A7?

 

The Archer A7 v5 doesn't support VPN client settings, it only offers a VPN server (OpenVPN and PPTP).  However, it will operate by default as VPN passthrough using IPSec, PPTP, or L2TP.  All you have to do is have the client software installed on the client devices and the VPN be based in one of the 3 mentioned protocols.  

 

We cannot provide more suggestions on the third-party software like ipvanish, sorry about that.

TP-Link home products currently don't support the VPN client settings, they only work as VPN servers (OpenVPN and PPTP). 


We do receive some other customer feedback that they wish we will support VPN client on the home routers, we have feedback all these requests to the related department, they will take this into serious consideration and will evaluate if we can add the support for it.

 

You may also check the business routers, they do support the VPN client setting, such as ER605:

That is one of the WAN connection types provided by the Internet Server Providers mostly in Russian, it is not commonly used for connecting to a normal VPN server, which could be encrypted. You can refer to this guide to know more about the settings:
