Not supported routers

Before we begin, we highly recommend downloading Surfshark apps to ensure the best performance and security, as well as the hassle-free setup. At the moment, we have apps for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS, Chrome, Firefox, Fire TV, Apple TV (& other smart TVs), Xbox, Playstation. If your device doesn’t support VPN apps, you can probably set up our Smart DNS on it to unlock the content.

 

You will not be able to use these routers with Surfshark using its native firmware:

  • Arris
  • Belkin
  • Cisco
  • D-Link
  • Fritz Box
  • Huawei
  • Linksys (except Tomato supported routers from this list)
  • Netgear
  • TP-Link
  • TRENDnet
  • Tenda
  • TotoLink
  • Ubee
  • Most ISP provided routers

Usually, these routers do not support OpenVPN protocol by default. However, you should be able to set it up with custom DD-WRT firmware and let the sharks protect your home network. You can find a list of DD-WRT friendly D-Link, Netgear, TP-Link routers HERE and everything you need to know about this firmware HERE.

 

If you do have DD-WRT installed on your router, please refer to our article on setting it up.

 

If your router supports a VPN client, setup is pretty easy. HERE you can find our setup guides for most of the routers. 

Please note that Surfshark is not to be held responsible for any damage done to the router or void of warranty that could be caused by flashing your router.
