GL-AXT1800 VPN completely disappeared after upgrade to 4.2.0

Dear Community,

I just updated my AXT1800 from 4.1.0 to 4.2.0. After reboot all VPN related menu items are gone. There is no Wireguard, no OpenVPN, no VPN Dashboard. But I really need it…

When I downgrade to 4.1.0 everything is back again. So what can I do?

Thank you.

I just read the other thread and it seems that I have a Chinese version as well. But why I have VPN options in 4.1.0 and not in 4.2.0 anymore?

Is there a way to change the router to a global version to keep the VPN menu?


That’s kind of weird. Please use command to know AXT1800 region:

uci show

Thanks for clarification. But I don’t live in China. I just bought this product from China. Is there a way I can change the country?

Hi Nimaa,

any way to contact you directly?

thanks it already solved

The statement refers to the China version, not where you live.

You can order products in China from all over the world (e.g., AliExpress).
