Router as an access point to share VPN connection possible?

I have an old router and I want to know how to configure it as an access point to share my VPN connection (pc VPN connection → access point → smartphone) to connect my smartphone, it is possible, thanks

    Check if your router can run one of the third-party firmwares available - DD-WRT, Tomato, or OpenWRT. You'll have to install whichever one you choose on your router first, and then you can come back here and follow the official instructions for DD-WRT or Tomato, or search the forum for how to do the same on OpenWRT. Happy hunting!

  • That is also what I'm like. But the way to find third party safety?
  • Unless the router supports WRT then answer is probably no.

    I believe you can set-up your pc to share the VPN with other devices but I would't recommend it.
