Oh right, well that's clearly a bug. I'll try and recreate it.

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

In regards to your DNS leak you might want to consider Cloudflare (1.1.1.1) for your primary DNS-see why at the following link: https://www.cloudflare.com/learning/dns/what-is-1.1.1.1/. VPN providers will often provide there own DNS server but it usually has a negative impact on performance when installed on the internet setup page of your router. Just a suggestion for the interim.

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

Hi,

I have it setup and working but my problem is when I turn the vpn on I get double Nat on the Xbox. It’s only when the vpn is on. Not sure what is causing this?

Thanks for your help

Luke.

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

Hi Luke, that's down to the VPN, they may block ports that are required for an Open NAT. May be worth looking for a gaming VPN or asking them if they can unblock ports on servers your account uses.

Unfortunately here it is over a year later and I just bought a xr500. And it still has DNS leak!

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

That should be fixed in 3.0. Meanwhile you can change the DNS on the router to the VPN DNS or use a VPN Client if using for the PC.

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

I have a subscription to HideMyAss vpn and using that for my Hybrid VPN connection.  The only connections I have to Hybrid VPN is 2 PS4's.  When the VPN is on and says connected I can not access any games on the PS4.  When I turn the VPN off I have no issue connecting to games.  Please help !!!

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

Does it occur on all games you're playing? Are you using the Geo-Filter at the same time?

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

Has anyone got IPVanish VPN to work with the XR500?

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

Are you using the IPVanish OpenVPN configuration files?

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

Hello, I need big help trying to figure out setting up my vpn with the xr500 I spent 5 hours last night trying to get it to work and I’m completely lost. I am not a networking guy at all. I tried my best but you all got me confused as hell with this download the config file and all that. Lol. I need help. I am going to provide a screenshot of the instructions I think I’m supposed to use and my current situation.

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

@Cryp1ic you're using the VPN service feature rather than the Hybrid VPN feature. What is your reason for trying to use a VPN? Then I can point you in the right direction.

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

Hi,

I'm trying to connect a hidemyass VPN and in your instructions it says to toggle disable then add sign in details for hidemyass, then says to enable before connecting. That option isn't possible for me, can you help please?

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

You're using the VPN service which is the wrong feature. Click Hybrid VPN on the left hand menu of the interface - not in Settings, then you can continue with the instructions.

Hi, yes that is what I was doing. I've sorted it now.

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

Do you know if this feature will be coming to the XR1000. Only VPN option i see is under the advanced settings and that would apply to the whole network. 

 

I would like to only apply it to specific devices.

Re: Hybrid VPN Setup Guide

The VPN in Settings is a VPN service so you can connect to the router from somewhere else. Don't have an estimate for Hybrid VPN, that's up to NG.
