How to Setup PPTP on your ASUS Router using PPTP

Note: This tutorial is only compatible with the following Asus routers: RT-N66U, RT-AC56U, RT-AC66U, RT-AC68U, RT-AC87U.

To use TorGuard VPN on an Asus router, we first recommend using OpenVPN on Asus. If that does not work well for you — for example, if your router hardware cannot deliver sufficient network speeds when using OpenVPN encryption — then you can follow the steps below to use PPTP instead

Go to the Asus router control panel on your browser. It should have the address by default (unless you changed it)

router ip

Log in with the username and password you set up for your router account. It should be User Name: admin and Password: admin by default (unless you changed it).
