You can't install anything in an E4200 as long as it is running Linksys firmware.

My guide from a couple a months ago when I flashed dd-wrt on my refurbed E4200 in order to take advantage of running OpenVPN tap server on this router...still works 100% for me!:smileyvery-happy:

Re: E4200 - can I setup an OpenVPN without installing dd-wrt?

I am running dd-wrt and trying to configure the open vpn, but havent managed. Can someone help me do this?

 

The service > open vpn screen on my version od dd-wrt - dd-wrt.v24-17201_NEWD-2_K2.6_big-nv60k, the most recent according to the dd-wrt wiki installationf for the e4200 - is different from every tutorial I have seen, it has no BRIDGE TAP TO BR option and is that I am unable to leave the TUN MTU SETTING blank - it will show a warning that it is out of range and automatically set to 1500. Can this be the problem? how do I solve it?

 

thank you!

Try a dd-wrt forum.

dd-wrt is not really covered in this forum. Ask in the dd-wrt forum. There should be someone able to explain it to you.
