OpenVPN and NordVPN Drops Connection


I am using a MT300N-v2 to connect to a UK NordVPN server from the US. I am finding that the connection will drop after random periods of time and not re-connect. This then requires a power down reboot of the 300N and all is good until the next disconnect.

I have seen posts of adding the following lines to the vpn file from Nord -

keepalive 10 60
auth-retry interact

and deleting -

ping 15
ping-restart 0

These changes doesn’t help.

  • Anyone have this connection working solid?


Using an AR300M and have run Nord on it with no problems lately (but I don’t use US servers).
