I’m having issues connecting to an OpenVPN server with the AR300M. Basically it connects but I cannot load certain websites (ie: all websites on google servers load but websites outside of that probably won’t load).
I know the VPN is working because i downloaded the open vpn client to my pc and it loads all the websites just fine. It’s just not working through the router.
I also have a NordVPN subscription and it does work perfectly on the router. So i cannot understand why i can’t get this openvpn that I have setup to work here.
The AR300M has correctly sent the packets to the VPN server.
Please check the list of VPN clients on the VPN page of ASUS.
If the AR300M is visible, a VPN tunnel has been established. You should check the configuration and VPN logs on your ASUS router to resolve the issue of the VPN server not forwarding packets from the AR300M to the Internet.
Otherwise, the VPN tunnel has not been established. Please check the AR300M logs.

While reading your posts I managed to understand that the problem might be coming from a DNS resolving issue, therefore I made this setting:
