The VyprVPN Router App runs on top of Tomato firmware, so the host router must be able to support Tomato by Shibby. The app works with two processor types, MIPS and ARM. It currently supports the following versions of Tomato by Shibby:
- MIPS: K26RT-N or K26RT-AC
- ARM: K26ARM
At this time we only support Tomato by Shibby. We do not support Advanced Tomato, Tomato USB or other versions of Tomato.
Note: Be advised that MultiWAN builds of Shibby Tomato do result in a loss of Per-Device VPN functionality where the "Bypass VPN" option causes the device to lose Internet connectivity. A bug has been filed directly with Shibby for the issue. That said, we still recommend using the latest version of Tomato for your router, rather than an older version.
We recommend the router have at least 64MB of RAM available. It should be flashed with a VPN version of Tomato by Shibby firmware.
We do not offer assistance with flashing routers. Take care in this process as it can be difficult to recover from a bad flash if the process is not followed properly or something goes wrong. Golden Frog assumes no liability for bricked routers.
If you install the VyprVPN Router App on a version of Tomato not listed above, it will not function correctly. We are looking at supporting other versions in the future.
Additionally, the VyprVPN Router App does not support PPPoE connections. If your ISP requires you setup PPPoE and authenticate with a username and password to connect to their service, the app will not function correctly. We are looking to add PPPoE support in the future as well.
In general, there are more variables at play when using our app on your router compared to using our desktop or mobile apps. Tomato by Shibby is an open-source firmware and has an ever-growing list of supported routers, many of which we have not tested. During development, we tested the following routers on vanilla Tomato installs: Linksys E3200, Asus RT-N66U, and the Netgear Nighthawk R7000.
While you are welcome to use any compatible router you wish, we cannot guarantee the functionality of the app on any router due to the open-source nature of the firmware, different local network configurations, and router settings customization outside of the installed app.
