Can't connect to ASUS GUI when VPN active


New Around Here

I am setting up a VPN on my RT-AX68U with Merlin 386.4 firmware. When I activate my VPN, I lose connection to and can not connect unless I restart my router (disconnecting the VPN).

I've tried,, and my gateway address. I've also tried a different browser and a private window.

What am I doing wrong here?

Thanks for any help.

I'm assuming you're talking about the VPN client and not the server.

If you have the VPN DNS Configuration set to Exclusive then not being able to use is expected behaviour. However, you should still be able to reach the router's GUI via its IP address, e.g. or for the newer models.
