Hello guys and Hello DD-wrt,

iam new to this and learned now a bit and was succesfully in flashing my Dir615 revision D with latest DDWRT software.

But now the Problem ist when iam going to Service and Vpn there is no OPEN VPN. Did i missed something or does openvpn not working with the dir615?

I want to use my vpn with this Router cuz i need an ipv4 or ipv6 for going online with nintendo switch or playstation. Iam living outside the City and just got LTE 4G Network here and no regular DSL. And Surfshark only works with open VPN in Router.

Could someone help me to get open vpn on this router working pls?

Almost no 4MB flash routers have OPENVPN, A few old Linksys WRT series I think do.
You need a router with at least 8MB flash and better CPU speed than your old D-Link has if you want OVPN working with decent speed.

Could you theoretically still get OpenVPN working on that DIR-615 rev D router? Hmmm, maybe. Perhaps by installing Entware (provided Entware even runs on Ralink chipsets, I'm just not sure). The challenging part is that you would need to install it on the JFFS partition (/jffs), assuming there's sufficient flash (iirc, Entware requires about 4-5MB for the core, plus the OpenVPN packages). If JFFS isn't possible, then either use external storage (e.g., a Windows share), or even under /tmp (the RAM drive, although the installation would NOT be persistent; it would need to be reinstalled and reconfigured w/ every boot!).

IOW, I can imagine this being possible, even though the firmware itself doesn't support it. It just has to be done through additional software.

All that said, I agree w/ bushant. That router is downright ancient (circa 2008) and woefully underpowered to support OpenVPN. Even if you could install OpenVPN on that router, it would be painful. You might get as little as 2-3Mbps over the VPN. Even modern day routers often struggle w/ VPNs, and why we advise that users who intend to support OpenVPN and want top performance get as powerful a router as possible.
