I'm trying to install Nord VPN onto my router. Nord told me that the AC1200 router needs to be flashed beforehand and directed me to this website to get the firmware.

I am new to this so I haven't really got a clue what I'm doing! I found the firmware I needed (https://dd-wrt.com/support/router-database/?model=RT-AC56U%20(AC1200)_-) and downloaded it. Logged into the router and tried to load the firmware but it kept saying incorrect file type.

Could anyone give me detailed instructions please?

Welcome to the forum.

You are posting in the wrong forum and I am pretty certain that is the wrong file.

See the forum guidelines:

AC1200 only says something about the combined speed.
You have to be more specifc, you need the exact router type!
