Hi, is it possible to set up a VPN connection on my Talktalk router. If so can you direct me to the information I will need to do this. I have 2 smart TVs and I would like the benefits of the VPN on them as well as other devices.

Thanks for that. I have installed the VPN on several devices and all seems good but I wanted the same privacy on my 2 smart TVs and thought the simplest way would be to add it to the router. I don’t really want to purchase a VPN enabled or compatible router. Thanks

Hi Debbie, I was hoping to set up the VPN on the router itself so that all traffic passed through. I have successfully added it to devices like phone but I wanted it to cover TVs. Do you think that’s possible. I can get a VPN enabled router and some will accept the app but I wanted to know if and how I would add it to my Talktalk router.

Hi @Kerpolican TalkTalk's routers do not have VPN client or server software. They allow VPN pass through but the devices need would need to run the appropriate VPN client and you would need to use a paid for/free VPN service. The alternative solution would be to use a 3rd party router which provides VPN support or use a Raspberry pi on your network to provide a VPN to devices connecting to the internet through it.
