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 http://192.168.1.1. 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 - http://www.astrill.com/ddwrt/install/YOUR_EMAIL/YOUR_PASSWORD`

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:

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.
