Hello Everyone,

 

Some customers are interested in the VPN Client feature on the TP-Link router, we currently have some models support it. We will list them here and update the list.

For those not in the list, we don't know whether or when they will support VPN Client in the future, so we will not answer if you ask. You can keep an eye on the official website, or on the router web GUI/Tether app for any new updates.

 

Before requiring the VPN Client feature on a router, we hope our customers have a better understanding how to use it, or if it is actually the function you required. 

 

Below is the setup guide for reference:

How Do I Use VPN Client to Access a Remote VPN Server

 

Models support VPN Client already:

Archer AX20(EU)_V1_210318 and later versions

Archer AX20(US)_V1_210318 and later versions

Archer AX20(EU)_V2_210325 and later versions

Archer AX20(US)_V1.2_210304 and later versions

Archer AX1800(US)_V1.2_210304 and later versions

Archer AX21(US)_V1.2_210304 and later versions

Archer AX90(EU)_V1_210312 and later versions

Archer AX90(US)_V1_210312 and later versions

Note: Please check the device label to verify the country code and hardware version of your device first, and choose the correct file to download and install.

 

Kindly inform us to update this thread if you find one that supports VPN Client but not listed, thank you.

Can we confirm who is the OpenVPN provider in this network?

 

If you failed to set up the VPN Client on the AX20, please check the solutions we provided in the below thread:

It starts to look promising regarding a vpn client.smiley

 

Hopefully my Ax11000 will get support for a vpn client as well.

Hi, this is an important feature for cellular routers. Currently the openVPN server is not working as expected because the cellular operator is assigning a private ip address to the router but the dynamic dns resolves the public address used to access the web.

@marcobrick yes exactly... Also most of the consumer broadband connections doesn't give public ip.. they provide a private ip.

Thank you both for sharing your opinion on the VPN Client feature on the TP-Link cellular routers, we do hear some feedback that the cellular operator is assigning a private IP address to the router, and we find a customer sharing his experience and solution here, you can check if it helps:

Hello

good day

I would like to know if these published models work to configure VPN by OPENVPN protocols and configure the files that ExpressVPN provided me, which is my VPN directly from the router and not have to use the VPN application in Windows or on my Smartphone.

What is the difference between vnp client and l2tp, pptp connection? If i had known there are only specific routers with VPN client, i would have bought one of these.

Do you mean L2TP/PPTP connection on the router WAN as below?

 

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:
https://www.tp-link.com/support/faq/2344/

 

You can use the newly adopted VPN Client feature to connect to some commonly known VPN servers, such as ExpressVPN or NordVPN.

Ok, it is about encryption. I think my archer c6 will never have such true vpn feature. It is probaly only for premium products like AX.
