Thanks for reporting.

The OpenVPN Client setup guide which is a sticky in this forum has information about how to setup OpenVPN on the router and also has a paragraph about PIA.

Verify Server Certificate - enabled ...this is missing at your set up, also change to UDP4 so, it wont try UDP6...and disable all the IPv6 as, IPv6 and DNS6 are not very happy to use...tunnel must be 1400 even lower 1392 (default is 1400)

pull-filter ignore "dhcp-option DNS6"
pull-filter ignore "ifconfig-ipv6"
pull-filter ignore "route-ipv6"
block-ipv6

disable-dco

and although those setting will work, those are very base and low security....its very recommended to use at least 256 GSM encryption as a minimum...chchapoly set in x3 boxes works faster..and better...but you'd need to change hash to 256 and udp4 port is 1197, and add/change the other certificate (4k)

PIA web site their recommended settings are not updated, but there is a meaning on those at egc guide...

will check and update DCO if its working later... Cool
