Did you update sertificate on the router side? What error did you get during connection?

Steps to solve the problem:

1. Go to http://www.routerlogin.net/openvpn_crt_check.htm and click update button to update sertificate on the router side. Also try to reboot the router.

2. Download new config files for all clients (iOS, Android, Windows).

3. Update key files (sertificate files - ca.crt, client.crt and client.key) from downloaded configs on all you clients.

4. Connect to OpenVPN.

Please go to log in you iOS OpenVPN client and write here what kind of error you get while connecting. Also try to update sertificate again on the router side and on clients, sometimes update will be only 2-3 times.

Seams that sertificate is no updated or you have dynamic IP address.

Interesting information. Appears like yet another point solution applied to one model only, here the R7000. We ask for years for an option to generate new OpenVPN private key and certificate (e.g. for the case that a device was lost - especially because all OpenVPN clients make use of the same certificates)  in a documented, standardized way. @ChristineT - one more point on the list of mess: There is zero standardisation, changes and updates are not properly deployed to other router models.

Didn't have time to test, but wired that changelog doesn't mention VPN fix
For now, only one person, the same, claims it is fixed on all active threads. So, anymore feedback as i wont bother with a reconfig if VPN mobile internet acceess is still broken

Netgear's consumer BU release notes are commonly incomplete and done carelessly. There had been updates with release notes not even mentioning the change of the OpenVPN certificate form MD5 to SHA256 signature requiring a re-download of the config (!!!), or see the ubiquitous "Fixes security issues." without listing the relevant CVE or the Netgear PSV, @ChristineT pls.

After upgrading the firmware to V1.0.9.42_10.2.44, I can confirm that the original problem (vpn connects but no routing to internet) has not been fixed.

Re: R7000 OpenVPN iOS - Updated VPN no routing to internet - firmware V1.0.9.34_10.2.36

FW V1.0.9.42: OpenVPN internet access from mobile devices still broken

- Update FW

- factory default

- setup VPN and generate new certs from ROUTER_ADDRESS://openvpn_crt_check.htm

- check the new certs are changed from old ones, properly setup mobile devices with new certs

- OpenVPN still broken like 1.0.9.34: connects to VPN server but no internet access from mobile devices

- restore FW 1.0.9.32, keeping new certs and not changing anything in OpenVPN clients: everything is back to normal

 

Netgear: please fix the VPN access as promised

PS: willing to test and debug beta if needed

I can confirm the Beta FW v1.0.9.40_10.2.41 fixes the VPN issue

However, I didn't receive any info if it is a debugging firmware, if there is debug code and if it can be used as stable.

So, for now, reverted back to R7000-V1.0.9.32_10.2.34 FW.

 

Any feedback from the devs when will we have a final stable FW with the VPN working, as it is an aknowlged defect ?

Same problem after updating firmware to V1.0.9.42_10.2.44.  I figured that would have the fix but no dice.  Very frustrating.

 

Also, just to clarify what I'm observing, it is NOT that there is no internet connectivity after connecting to the VPN, it is just that DNS does not resolve so the only way to reach a server is by typing in the IP address.

Same problem here, cannot access internet, only can access internal network.

After downgrade version from 1.0.9.34 to 1.0.9.32, it been normal again.
