Rule to exclude IP from OpenVPN (nord) breaks WAN connecion

Remove the hash, this needs to be activated.

Gateway is pushed the router itself.
DNS is also pushed the router itself.
For that you need to add a tag. The dns option in the host config is irrelevant with what we want to do, you can leave it.

config host
        option name 'TV-CABLE'
        option dns '1'
        option mac '50:56:BF:A7:EF:46'
        option ip '192.168.1.100'
        option leasetime '1d'
        option tag 'novpn'

config tag 'novpn'
        option dhcp_option '6,8.8.8.8,8.8.4.4'

You can use different DNS than the Google ones I used there. Basically you need to add the tag option and then define that this tag will provide the custom DNS. I think you cannot add that in Luci, so careful how you'll edit, or use uci.
