The following is required for VPNShazam VPN to work with a DD-WRT router:
- Buy a secure VPNShazam VPN connection package
- An internet connection
- DD-WRT compatible router running v3
Before following this guide, you will need to install DD-WRT on your router. To do this, you will need to go to DD-WRT’s router database and search for your router’s model number to see if your router is compatible or find a beta build for your router. This guide uses KONG’s beta build of DD-WRT v3.0-r31520M on a Netgear R7000.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Certain beta builds may not work with OpenVPN. Please read the feedback in the build forum before installing a beta build. Also note, regardless of what model router you have or version of DD-WRT you are installing, there is a chance of bricking your router (i.e. rendering the router completely useless) if the process of putting DD-WRT on the router does not complete properly. Please thoroughly read and follow the related documentation regarding the updating procedure for you router, to minimize the risk of bricking your router.
