Setting up the WireGuard VPN Client on your Deco app is a straightforward process. Please follow the steps below to get started.

1. Open the Deco app and log in to your TP-Link account.

2. Tap More at the bottom bar, then tap Advanced.

3. Select VPN Client and enable the VPN Client feature.

4. Add a new VPN server and choose WireGuard VPN.

5. Import the WireGuard configuration by scanning the server's QR code or importing the server's configuration file, then click Save. The parameters are automatically filled in; do not change them unless necessary.

6. If import the server’s configuration file, We currently support some basic parameters of the WireGuard configuration file as Pic 1. If the configuration file you use includes an IPv6 address, MTU, or many more (for example, Pic 2), please edit the file and delete those parameters, then save the file.

7. A message similar to the following will appear if the connection is successful.

8. In the client permissions options, select All Clients; all clients can connect to this VPN. Select Client List; please add clients who are allowed to use the VPN to the Client list.

Note: It is NOT suggested that the same configuration file be used on multiple VPN Clients simultaneously. This is a precautionary measure to ensure the security and stability of your VPN connections. You could import the configuration file into your mobile phones and router, but you are not allowed to connect to the VPN server simultaneously based on WireGuard protocols.
