I think I can provide some info of your first question.
Let’s say the download speed under PureVPN since you mentioned, the total speed should around 12-15 Mbps, if there are 2 devices, it will be lower.
Actually the AR750 is not the best choice for use OpenVPN, the GL-B1300 can get 22-26Mbps
I had the same issue with support however after searching for answers came across this article on purevpn and the guys there solved my issue by forwarding my request to the concerned department. Finally my issue has been resolved and now I can setup purevpn on my router.
Hi, noob here.
I had DD-WRT for many years, but recently bricked the last one, so I bought a GL-AR7505 with OpenVpn pre-installed.
I could not connect it to Pure VPN at all, as was getting tons of errors in the .ovpn files they supply. (Actually they don’t supply Open WRT ones, but I took the DD-WRT ones and the UNIX ( sorry Linux - showing my age there), ripped the commands, certs and keys from them and cobbled together a config file that works pretty sweetly. Available here : https://support.purevpn.com/openvpn-files. I unzipped the LINUX package, and took the London TCP opvn file. ukl2-ovpn-tcp,opvn. I then deleted everything apart from the certs and the pkeys. Make sure to delete all the commands AFTER the tag,
I then added some commands to the top of the file immediately before the tag.
So that it looks like this: client dev tun remote ukl2-ovpn-tcp.pointtoserver.com resolv-retry infinite nobind persist-key persist-tun port 80 proto tcp auth-user-pass comp-lzo key-direction 1 remote-cert-tls server cipher AES-256-CBC verb 3
I saved it and it connects like a charm for iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 etc …
You only need to change the server to ukg2, ukm2 etc. to connect to the different UK based servers.
Not tried US or other ones yet, but for UK it’s fine.
I had contacted PureVPN support, but they were useless, first telling me to use a Chrome plugin, and then a different server, before closing my ticket without fixing it.
Hopefully anyone with PureVPN and OpenVPN over Open WRT / Luci can use this config too.
