This tutorial will show you how to set up ExpressVPN on your D-Link router using L2TP.

Important: L2TP does not offer any encryption and should only be used for anonymization or for changing locations.

The steps below were tested on D-Link DIR-842. Some D-Link models require IP addresses instead of server names for the L2TP manual configuration, while other models (e.g., DSL-225) may not support VPN clients.

If you are unable to follow the steps below because your device interface looks drastically different, contact the ExpressVPN Support Team for assistance.
