i have a RT-AX88U running merlin and i want to create a VPN client so al devices(wifi or direct connected) will start runnnig through this vpn instead of the regular wan.
The reason is i want to hide the real IP/country i am in

i am testing with proton free and made a wireguard configuration file which i uploaded to the router
everything seems enabled but still when i try ip.me it still shows me the real ip address and country.
i am obviously doing something wrong but need some pointers
how can i see the router is using the vpn to communicate outside instead of the regular wan ip?

EDIT:i added a plain rule and it seems to work now. is this the correct weay to do things

If one hasn't done so already, one may want to see ProtonVPN's setup guides for Asus routers if one is having trouble .

Check also under VPN Client that the box for Redirect internet traffic is set to "VPN Director".
