How to setup VPN for just wired devices (not wifi ones) on R6400 router?

Hello, I have an R6400 router and use the wifi for my phones/desktop and the wired ethernet port exclusively for my Xbox. I am using Private Internet Access VPN for my desktop/phones and workes great. I would like to also use VPN for my xbox. 

 

My question is, is there a way to configure the router so it only uses VPN for the attached (wired) device? I don't want to globally set VPN for everything in the router since some shopping websites block known VPN addresses and I can easily switch it on/off from my PC browser. 

 

thanks

Hi @Joe509,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

1. This is not a supported feature on the R6400.

2. You may want to look into the XR500 since it supports HMA VPN but it does not have the option to limit to wired devices only.
