Express VPN thru my R7000???

Ok so I am not the most tech savy guy, im not going to lie. However I am pretty good at following directions and achieiving the end result once I am on the correct path. Here is what I am looking for guidance on. I am stationed in korea, I have a house full of kids and a wife who rely on netflix to stay sane. Currently we use our express VPN thru computers and phones to watch online. However that limits the locations we can watch. Is it possible to run the VPN thru the router to where any device that connects to my router will be running thru my express VPN account.  EXAMPLE...So if 3 people are in 3 different rooms watching netflix on smart tvs. Ive searched around for about a month now and just feel lost. I hate to ask it, but I need HELP!!! my sanity is at stake here. Thanks in advance for any support you can provide.

Yep--pretty easy, actually.

I would recommend installing Tomato firmware (I just did this this past summer, actually, for much the same reason).


Once Tomato is installed, you can set it up pretty easily with most any VPN.

This is an issue near and

This is an issue near and dear to my heart, and I'm happy to say that not only is it possible, it's easy with either Tomato or DD-WRT. For the R7000, I ran both shibby's Tomato and Kong's DD-WRT with my VPN (Private Internet Access) for almost a year with no issues.

I even wrote up some instructions. The guidelines for your specific router and FW build may be different from this article, as it was written for the R6300, and each VPN will have its own setup guidelines.
