Hi Liam, 

finally i got acces on my router page Duma OS; then i went to the Hybrid VPN and i found that netgear only accept two provvider (Hidemyass or PureVPN).

Now i would like to ask you if Hybrid VPN DumaOS, can accept other provvider like the one already i bought it ( Surfshark VPN ) .

 

Thank you for help

You need to obtain the OpenVPN configuration files from Surfshark, you can then enter those in the advanced setup of HybridVPN and it will work.
