I'm new to OpenWRT and trying to setup a travel router using a RPi4b.
Image is installed and have done basic setup and gotten the internal wireless online and connected to my home wireless for package updates, but I haven't been able to get my USB wireless dongle to get installed. Looking at the documentation. The USB adapter is 2.4 GHz, and 5 GHz.

The Alfa is working great. I will stick with that for now.
Now I am just facing a problem with the VPN.
I am trying to follow along with NetworkChuck
everything besides my VPN works, I can connect to the network, but the wifi is not being rerouted to my VPN. I use hotspot shield, and I already tried with Nordvpn
