@gunnarssonsmari  I'm afraid you won't be able to setup the VPN on the TG589. To use Express VPN for all devices through the router, you need a router that provides L2TP VPN tunnel support. The Express VPN site lists some routers that have the required support https://www.expressvpn.com/vpn-software/vpn-router

Must admit my knowledge about this is minimal.

The Expressvpn website lists the routers which allow it to be set on and I can see the advantage of having a router that has it activated all the time but for some users who use it infrequently it may be just as easy to set it up on individual devices and activate it as necessary.

Even in the linux terminal it is easy enough to activate on a individual device.

How easy would that be?

BTW Much as I would like a VPN, the cost is too discouraging.
