I am pretty new to VPN configs so please have patience. First time trying to setup NORDVPN on 386.3 trying to add a Canada region so I can watch other countries' netflix.
I have an ax88u and ax58u in a mesh network. The 88u is connected to a pihole which has been running and filtering successfully.

Ran through
and everything connects except theres no public IP address to display. Also, When I added my cellphone to the VPN Director and enable it, my ip is still my home address. So not sure if the VPN is even working correctly.

If you are running pihole then your DNS configuration needs to be disabled. Not relaxed

You didn't configure "Redirect Internet Traffic"...
