VPN Settings on my Netgear Router HELP


VPN Settings on my Netgear Router HELP

I cannot find my specific router listed to start a topic for my model. 
If this is the wrong forum, please let me know where they offer support for my model router.
My Router: NETGEAR ProSafe™ Gigabit 8 Port VPN Firewall FVS318N
DETAILS URL: https://www.netgear.com/business/products/security/FVS318N.aspx#tab-techspecs


Anyway... I am trying to configure mine to work with Www.PrivateInternetAccess.Com (PIA) and put my entire LAN on their VPN.

PIA support gave me the below as possible sollutions but, I am unsure what to do.
It would be much easier if I had PIA's details and simply input them but "Nooooo!"  LOL

Would there be any Gurus on here that would know the info needed so I can make this work? Maybe even remote to me via Teamviewer if that would be easier for you. 

--Paste from PIA--
Hello Leda sorry for the unacceptable delay. Almost any router with VPN capability could work with our service. However, we only offer ready VPN setup guides for routers using specific router firmware. Here is a list of routers compatible with each of the currently supported firmware types:

DD-WRT -- http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices

Tomato -- http://tomatousb.org/doc:build-types

Pfsense -- https://www.freebsd.org/relnotes/CURRENT/hardware/suppo...

The directions for router based VPN setups for these firmware can be found on this page: https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/pages/client-supp...

In all likelihood, you will need to install ("flash") such custom router firmware onto your router. Please be aware that router flashing falls outside our support scope, and doing so would be at your own discretion and liability.

It may be possible to configure VPN use on stock or other firmware, provided it has VPN configuration options, but we would not have a ready guide for its use. You could try to find help with such a setup on the PIA forum:



Thank you in Advance!

Hi LedaOhio9,


Welcome to our community!


The FVS318N only supports IPSec, SSL, L2TP and PPTP for VPN. I'm not that really familiar with the privateinternetaccess, my apologies. May I know what protocol do they use so that we can connect the firewall to it? May I also know what do you wanted to achieve here.
