Hi - Archer C7 1750 is my primary router.

Archer 1200 is my secondary router connected to TV only.

I wish to enable PPTP or L2TP VPN on the secondary router. so, that only TV connects to secondary router and all other go directly through primary router.

 

can I do it?

 

I tried connecting secondary router to the LAN of the primary router, changed the subnet of secondary router and added PPTP details on the secondary router. Although on the secondary router screen it says connected when I windows 10 PC to my secondary router, but it does not seem that desktop is connected to VPN server, as displayed in iplocation.

 

would you know what is wrong?

 

alternatively, can I enable PPTP on primary router and only restric VPN through access tp only one IP address, i.e., when other desktops access this router they are not routed through VPN connection.

 

thanks

Interesting question. You think there would be a way as you could have a PC, tablet. or phone with a VPN installed the device and only that device would have VPN. If you could install VPN on the TV, it would work however I do not know of one that does. Could you get a device that can stream the content, run VPN, and project to the TV such as a tablet, PC or a roku type device?

@ArcherC8 

 

I found the issue. It seems the Archer A5 1200 router does not support PPTP VPN. Everytime I connect, it display VPN sever IP and DNS as 0.0.0.0. However, when I replaced with C7 1750, the PPTP connection displayed the VPN servers IP and DNS and successfully connected to the VPN via passthrough through my primary router.

 

Has anyone successfully  installed VPN on TP link A5 1200? can I flash the firmware with openwrt or dd-wrt?
