The VPN client seems to be broken, I m trying to set up my VPN service with ExpressVPN and the only way it seems to work is set to All devices and sticky DNS accept set and it's shooty at that as it doesn't seem to always work like that.

when i try to set a manual policy with exclusive dns accept and policy rules or strict doesn't matter with ip range "192.168.1.0/30"

I ve talked with expression it hasn't help i think its in the firmware. I ve even reverted to stock, setup vpn then upgrade to merlin and it didn't matter.

forever i just need to set this policy and it worked fine and its recently its broken

thanks

I've had no issues with Express VPN client setup in the router. Can try to test and recreate what you are doing when I get home tonight.

Try setting 192.168.0.1/24 to VPN and 192.168.1.1 to WAN.

First, please describe what is the intended goal.

Also post your current configuration.

192.168.1.0/30 makes little sense - it means you want to ONLY redirect 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.3, and leave the rest going through your ISP.

I want to make so ip address from 192.168.1.0 to 192.168.1.30 go though vpn and every ip address outside this though WAN, can someone give me a way to work it out?

thanks

That range that you want to use cannot be defined as a CIDR. You will need to define multiple CIDRs to cover that specific range.

192.168.1.0/27 through VPN (this will redirect 192.168.1.0 through 192.168.1.31)
192.168.1.1 through WAN (the router itself needs to be able to directly reach the Internet)
192.168.1.31 through WAN (to remove from the first CIDR).

Could you point me somewhere I can learn how you work this out? thanks

EDIT. nvm found some info and that the range is predetermined
