    forum member @Mharv had similar problems with purevpn and DSL-AC88U and could not get it to work

    best to send feedback form and see if ASUS have suitable beta firmware with fix ?

    I think my issue is regardless the VPN provider.

    In ‘Import .ovpn file’,  when I click ‘choose file’ and select a OVPN file from the provider nothing happens.

    I have sent feedback to Asus.  Not holding my breath to receive a response.

    I am running express VPN via my Netgear XR500 so may swap them over for the DSL-AC88U and see if I have the same issues

    Who’s your VPN with ?

    I am testing PrivateVPN to see if they are any good.

    Have you tried any other VPN Providers and if so did they work ?

    That is good news with regards that both do not work, was that with OPENVPN/L2TP ?

    Once I understand which Protocol you had issues with I will drop ASUS an email and try to dig a little deeper, can you screen dump your VPN settings so I can show them also, (hide account details) ;-)

    It’s using the OpenVPN method and the following guide:

    Process is correct so should work, I assume you are also using the modem inbuilt into DSL-AC88U ?

    Yes I am using the modem on the DSL-AC88U with wireless turned off.  I have Google Mesh handling the Wi-Fi.

    I will chat with ASUS and see if they are able to advise ;-)

    As an update, I tried to load my ExpressVPN settings upon my DSL-AC88U and can confirm that I could mot establish a VPN, my ExpressVPN settings work on both my RT-AC86U (running ASUSWRT-Merlin) and my Netgear XR500

    Looking at Logs it shows the following –

    Oct  6 12:21:10 DSL-AC88U daemon.err openvpn[7528]: Options error: Unrecognized option or missing parameter(s) in /data/openvpn/client/client.ovpn:5: remote (2.3.2)

    SO will chat with ASUS and see what they say

    @dodgydrains I spoke with ASUS and they acknowledge there are VPN issues with the DSL-AC88U.

    I also asked if fix would be introduced in next firmware release and at the moment, it is unknown as work is ongoing
