Loosing access to the router after enabling the openvpn configuration

Hi all,

Am new to the forum but have been using openwrt for years now on different devices. Actually I won't buy a router unless it is supported by openwrt. Thanks a lot to the team for this great software.

Here's my issue:

Am trying to setup an openvpn (routed mode) connection to a remote server. But, as soon as I enable the configuration and start the openvpn service I can no longer ping and access the router via And I have to reset the router again and again.

I have been using softether client and it works great.

Here's the link to the guide am using to complete the setup

Thanks in advance for your support.

Add to the VPN client profile:


Check for possible routing collisions in the client log.
Change your LAN subnet if required.

Thank you very much vgaetera.

Changing the LAN subnet did the trick.

I am now connected through openvpn and everything is working fine except from stubby and adblock. I will create a new thread if needed.

Thanks again.
