VPN Setup instructions

To start set up VPN on Tenda routers you first have to connect to it. For that you have to put in your browser the following address: http://tendawifi.com

If this doesn’t work, please consult your router’s manual to find what is the Default Gateway Address.

Also you have to set your network connection to obtain IP address automatically if you connect to your router via Ethernet.

Depending on the router model and firmare you are using, there are a few different interfaces. Find your interface from the menu below and follow its steps.

    Click on PPTP/L2TP Client.
