Model: Archer AX20  
Hardware Version: V4
Firmware Version: 1.1.0 Build 20230725

According to several tutorials and articles, the AX20 router supports VPN Client, but when entering advanced settings there is no such functionality in the menu.

Is there any newer firmware or something?

 

Hardware: V4.6

Firmware: 1.1.0 Build 20230725 Rel. 55602(5553)

Sorry, my fault. You obviously have AX20 (US) HW v4.6 - details.

It's the same as the AX1800 that I posted earlier - it does have only a VPN Server implemented.

I believe the whole confusion comes from the fact that AX20 (US) HW v1.2 has USB port and VPN Client implemented - FW release notes.

You can see your exact router model on the device bottom sticker - details.

Your router model is AX1800 which doesn't have VPN Client implemented according to its specifications - details.

AX20 on the other hand is a different model, which already has the VPN Client implemented - details.

Thank you for the response, here it is

Picture

 

Looking at the links, I see that I have the router without a USB input.

 

But why does the model on the box say Archer AX20?

Confusion is a mild way of putting it.

 

Well I guess it's my fault because the buyer not only has to see models, but also the different versions of the same model (sarcasm)

 

Thanks a lot tp-link

Choosing a router model and its HW version sometimes is a little bit tricky and it's always best to ask for advise in the community before buying.

If your retailer has a return policy and you can claim it, AX55 is a good candidate for the feature you're after.

Of course, because buying a router is the same as buying a car (sarcasm obviously)

 

Anyway, thanks for the answers.
