I am having a difficult time setting up an archer c9 Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r43055 std (05/05/20), for use with mullvad.
I have FTTH, an ONT, HG6244C, DHCP is disabled, wifi turned off,
the archer has DHCP server enabled, lan IP 192.168.1.3
set to hand out 50 addresses
WAN ip set as static 192.168.1.2
I have used the mullvad website to setup the router,
about 1/3 down on that page, it makes reference to:
nsCertType verification, check the box, this does not appear. What are the errors that would be associated with this feature missing?
The openvpn log indicates a connection is made to mullvad, but checking am.i.mullvad, big red screen, not connected.
Also in the logs, this error:
WARNING: No server certificate verification method has been enabled. See http://openvpn.net/howto.html#mitm for more info.
I have read the website referenced, but its unclear to me, where to place the remote-cert-tls or ns-cert-type, does this go into one of the config boxes,or someplace else.
Last issue, on a clean install, reset to default setting, log in, with WAN cable connected to the ONT, results in no internet, if I replug the cable from the ONT, into a LAN interface, internet works, what needs configuring to have the WAN interface to work as advertised?

Please consider upgrading to 43516 or 43652 as IPv6 had issues prior to 43516. Since I don't know if you have a v1, v2, v3, or v4, I can't link you to the correct directory. Also, your WAN IP and LAN IP cannot be in the same subnet in gateway mode (which is what you probably should be in). You will not have internet access with your WAN connected to the ONT.
well, after many hours, mullvad is back up, and checking today, seems like its working.
not quite sure about mullvad after this fiasco,for a vpn service to be down for that many hours, and no notice, other than on the server page, seems kinda flakey.
maybe I'll give IVPN a try, anybody use them, and whats your thoughts.
Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r39715 std (05/03/19)
With this firmware and ivpn setup of wireguard works, blazing fast.
According to the setup page, this is there setup version, I tried with 43652, both vpn and wireguard, no internet connectivity.
Thanks for the help and suggestions
