Model: Archer AX55  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.2.3

I have setup OpenVPN server on AX55 router to connect remote phones. It works perfectly fine, but it seems that only 10 phones can be connected to this router simultaneously through OpenVPN. The phones have no other option other than OpenVPN. Is there a way to connect more than 10 phones on this router through OpenVPN? Or is there any other router that can support more than 10 OpenVPN clients?

Hi, Archer AX55 or other TP-Link routers with OpenVPN Server function support 10 VPN clients at most, if you need to connect more VPN clients, it is recommended to use WireGuard VPN Server which supports 16 VPN clients.

  @Sunshine Can you use two virtual servers simultaneously? Both OpenVPN and WireGuard? I mean, when eventually TP-Link starts supporting it on more than one router model. Because presently, I have zero options supporting WireGuard when it comes to buying TP-Link routers.

  @Sunshine Oh yes. That was what I was referring to too. Sadly, I've bought the AX6000 model a month or so before I saw this thread. Is there any news on other wire-guard model support timeline?

 

Thanks for a fast response.

Hi, we don't receive information about when AX6000 will support the WireGuard VPN, it is recommended to pay attention to any new firmware update on the router Web GUI or TP-Link official website, and we will also update the thread once there is any new model supporting it.
