Hi,
iv bought a Linksys wrt3200 to improve my wifi and sons gaming set up at home ,
so thought i may try out a VPN on it, done some reading and came across a lot of chat about DD-WRT,
do i need to install DD-wrt on this router to use a vpn . if i do ,how hard /complicated a job is it to install.
Youtube has a tutorial on it, but the guy clears his router by doing a 90 second reset procedure, then a lot of comments say not to do this,
so now im reluctant to try his method ,but cant seem to find any other clear method which is not questiuoned by someone else,
the web site itself (DD-WRT) doesnt explain too well for a novice like my self to follow ,with confidence that i wont destroy the router in the process..
Any info or help in finding a step by step on this would be apprciated. Or ,can i just run with the original Linksys set up.
Thanks.

not really you dont need to flash DD-WRT

in your router settings there should be a section for vpn settings
read up on openvpn

most vpn services use these configs
