This guide will show you how to use the Smart Location feature and change VPN server locations on the ExpressVPN app for the Asus, Linksys, and Netgear routers.
Note: Before proceeding with this tutorial, make sure you have set up the ExpressVPN app on your router.
Connect with Smart Location
By default, you will be automatically connected to the location that provides the optimal experience for you, with a function called Smart Location. The Smart Location algorithm selects this location based on key metrics such as download speed, latency, and distance.
Once the app says “Connected,” your devices will be secured by a VPN.
Connect to a different VPN server location
Note: To know which server location is best for your needs, read the ultimate guide to choosing a VPN server location.
To select a different VPN server location, click the location picker.
To connect to a server location, click the name of the location.
The list of VPN locations features two tabs: Recommended and All locations.
The Recommended tab shows you ExpressVPN’s top picks for you.
The All locations tab lists the VPN server locations by region. You can expand and collapse the lists by clicking the “>” icon on the right.
You can also use the search bar to search for a location to connect to.
