Dual VPN client on one router


I was wondering if it is possible to have two wireguard client running at the same time on the same router?
Here is what I would like to do :
My phone would be connected to one Wireguard client to have an IP in one country and my computer would be connected to an other Wireguard client to have an IP in a different country.

It seems like it is possible to have one OpenVPN client and one Wireguard client at the same time (not two Wireguard apparently?) but it is not possible to filter devices with MAC adresses in this case. It is only possible with one VPN client running at a time.

I don’t really know how all this works but is it a real technical limitation or just a function that is not implemented?

Thanks a lot for your answers !

The easiest thing to do would be to put your VPN provider’s conf into the WG app on your phone & leave it as a connected device but not using the WG Client of the GL device/router. (GUI → VPN → VPN Dashboard → VPN Client → Global Proxy → Based on the Client Device). It would default to blocking your phone from accessing any of your LAN-side computers however.

Technically speaking what you describe can be done: in reality there is no ‘server/master’ paradigm using WireGuard. It’s all peer to peer. I agree w/ GL that it’s far easier to grasp client/server though. I’m highly confident they wouldn’t support/assist setting up such a custom solution. You’d be better off directly asking on the OpenWrt forum. OpenWrt Linux is what GL builds their GUI upon.

Regardless you should make a backup of your GL device before diving deep into configuration files. You can always bail out with a backup. See

Thanks for your answer.

I’ll take a shot at asking on the OpenWrt forum :wink:

Have a nice day !
