How do I connect my whole house to a VPN using WRT3200ACM?

Linksys WRT3200ACM open source VPN router

In its standard, “out of box” form, the Linksys WRT3200ACM router doesn’t support connecting to a VPN server. So, if you want to connect all the devices in your home to a VPN, you’ll have to install open source firmware on your router. Here’s how.

How to use WRT3200ACM with a VPN service

  1. Buy your Linksys WRT3200ACM router. Use our link to get the best deal at Amazon.
  2. Download dd-wrt.
  3. Follow the instructions for flashing your Linksys WRT3200 open-source router with dd-wrt.
  4. Buy your VPN. We recommend NordVPN and ExpressVPN.
  5. Setup your WRT3200ACM router for either ExpressVPN or NordVPN using OpenVPN. Use the instructions for Nord. You can also follow the directions for ExpressVPN.
  6. Finally, configure all your devices, including IoT, smartphones, Apple TV, etc, to use your router. All internet traffic from your home will now have VPN protection.
