Nord VPN (or any other VPN) Nighthawk(R) X4S R7800

 I have 2 years left on a 3 year Nord VPN subscription, I just bought the Nighthawk(R) X4S R7800 because it said it has VPN support. now I find it is limited to only Open VPN. is there going to be an option to use other VPN's or do I just need to return and buy a different VPN router?

Return it and get an ASUS that has excellent VPN support. At the pace NETGEAR is moving with adding important features, I won't hold my breath for them to add more VPN providers

Routing: NETGEAR R7800 - Voxel Firmware 1.0.2.84SF
Switching: 2x NETGEAR 8-ports (GS108v4) / 1x NETGEAR 16-ports (JGS516v2)
Desktop: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X - Server: Intel Core i7-7700K - NAS: Intel Pentium G4400 - Cruncher: Intel Core i5-7400

Well, OpenVPN is the most advanced and widely used protocol nowadays. IKEv2 is not yet implemented for used on most of the ortodox routers. Same for NordVPN, Express and other biggest providers - they are recommending OpenVPN as the most secure and reliable one. Everyone is waiting for WireGuard imlementations tho.

Search - NETGEAR Communities – R7800 Nord VPN

 

A few solutions there.

 

What do they say at Nord VPN?

This any use?

 

What is VPN Client and how do I set it up on my R7800 Nighthawk X4S Smart WiFi Router? | Answer | NE...

 

This stuff is alien territory to me.
