Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can You Put a VPN on your Wi-Fi Router?

    Yes, if your router is VPN compatible. Putting a VPN on your router will eliminate the need to set up a VPN on every device you own. They’ll be protected automatically upon connecting to the router.

  • What is a VPN router?

    A VPN router is one that has been modified to perform VPN operations itself. This allows every connected device to enjoy VPN protection straight from the source.

  • Do I Need a Special Router for VPN?

    Not all routers can be transformed into a VPN router, but there are plenty that can be. If the router model you have isn’t supported, you’ll have to invest in a VPN capable router.

  • How Do I Know If My Router is VPN Compatible?

    To find out if your router is VPN compatible, you can check the router’s manual or do a Google search. If you have an ISP modem (which is usually a combination of a modem and router), it’s very likely that you won’t be able to put a VPN on your router.

  • Is There a Router with Built-In VPN?

    Absolutely. For example, Flashrouters offers routers built-in with PureVPN. Simply plug it in, and connect your devices. Quite simple, isn’t it?

  • Will a VPN work with my ISP’s modem?

    If you are using a modem provided by your ISP, you cannot use it to set up a VPN. In this case, you will haveto connect a VPN-supported router to your modem and configure the VPN directly on that device instead.

  • Which protocol should you use to set up PureVPN on your router?

    If you want to set up PureVPN on your home Wi-Fi, make sure your router supports either one of these protocols: OpenVPN or PPTP.
