Use a VPN Tunnel on Your Windows Computer
After you set up the router to use VPN and install the OpenVPN application on your computer, you can open
a VPN tunnel from your computer to your router over the Internet.
For the VPN tunnel to work, the local LAN IP address of the remote router must use a different LAN IP
scheme from that of the local LAN where your VPN client computer is connected. If both networks use the
same LAN IP scheme, when the VPN tunnel is established, you cannot access your home router or your
home network with the OpenVPN software.
The default LAN IP address scheme for the router is 192.x.x.x.The most common IP schemes are 192.x.x.x,
172.x.x.x, and 10.x.x.x. If you experience a conflict, change the IP scheme either for your home network or
for the network with the client VPN computer. For information about changing these settings, see Change
the LAN TCP/IP Settings on page 50.
