I have the same Module ip6t Rejects when I try to start VPN Fusion using Wireguard. It just sits "connecting" till I disable it. VPN Fusion with OPNvpn UDP works just fine. No errors detected with the import of the Wireguard Config file, except at the very bottom with Retries 25 ... Some Junk inserted after the 25. I just delete it and it appears to be fine with that. Have entered Wireguard config manually and still wont connect.
I will keep an eye on this thread as its early days yet.

So far so good as none of my pc's and wireless devices have experienced any issues with it.

I thought my RT-AX88U got hung. But it was my Netgear switch's adapter got burned and brought down the whole network. This firmware is still golden.

You made me think about my own 14 year old HP pro curve switch that my stuff is running on. When its time to replace it guess what company I'll be sticking with. :)

I decided to try this on my AX88U, and even signed up with HMA to test the integration.

When setting up a HMA profile under VPN Fusion, (there are only TCP profiles available - separate issue), it just sits at Initialising, please wait

A peek in the System Log tells the real story:

vpnclient5: Get CA failed

Anyone else using HMA with this firmware?

Another thing I will try is WireGuard support with TorGuard.
