NEED HELP WITH Error! GL-inet AX-1800 ERROR! PARAMETER ALREADY EXISTS.
Researched the subject of routers with Wireguard VPNs for two weeks. Was super happy to find a router that bragged about doing exactly what I needed. So, I bought three (3) GL-inet AX-1800 routers because I and my clients REALLY REALLY NEED:
- Mullvad VPN – because they are awesome
- installed on the router – because that’s how you do it for whole house VPN
- using Wireguard – because it’s fast, and OpenVPN is not
This should not be such a tall order, but apparently GL-inet can’t figure it out.
Now, I find out the product IS NOT AS ADVERTISED. It is DEFECTIVE.
So, I get everything in place, ready to go, plug in the CORRECT info, follow the instructions to the letter, click the button and all I get is:
“Error! Parameter already exists.”
WTF?? Yes, upgraded firmware. No, I do not have multiple keys or profiles on my Mullvad account; there are NONE. Apparently, following the GL-inet instructions creates one, but then, always, the stupid message, “Error! Parameter already exists.” What parameter? What exists that is f***ing up the process? Error message offers no explanation, no suggested fix from manufacturer. Yes, rebooted, etc., etc., the PRODUCT IS DEFECTIVE.
VPN is sometimes, finally, accidentally set up, but never exceeds 1MB down, and you only get about a tenth of the supposedly available Mullvad servers to connect to.
Now, I have three useless routers that can’t perform as promised. ANY SOLUTIONS?
Please, no “work-arounds.” I am a CISSP with 35 years experience. I know when it’s a configuration error, or if a product is defective. This product does not work as advertised, and is therefore, defective. In the professional world, we do not have time to wrestle with products, trying to force them into doing what they claim to be capable of. If they fail, you have to move on to something that works as advertised.
But, I don’t claim to be perfect! Anyone (HELLO GL-INET!!) know the answer?? Is there a fix???
