Install Astrill VPN Applet From Router's Web Interface

To install Astrill VPN Applet on your router, first navigate to the router web control panel using your browser, e.g. it could be located on Click on tab Administration->Commands. If you are prompted for a password, the default is admin/admin (unless you have changed it). You will see a screen similar to this one:


In the Commands box type:

eval `wget -q -O -`

Please replace YOUR_EMAIL and YOUR_PASSWORD with appropriate values and make sure you don’t remove backtick (`). It’s not an apostrophe (‘).

Then hit “Run Commands” and wait a few moments. If everything went correctly, you will see the following screen:


If you have any error on this step, please double check your firmware version, make sure it has OpenVPN 2.0+ The best is to contact our support and we can schedule a remote desktop session.

Astrill is now installed on tab Status->My Page, so let’s go there. You will see the following screen:


Choose a server from the drop down box and hit Connect. We will be soon adding more servers to Astrill DD-WRT.

If you run into any problems, make sure you tried the following:

1. Reload router defaults settings
2. Connect ADSL modem to WAN port to router
3. Install Astrill on your router.
