Hello,

 

I am using OpenVPN, and have used sites such as https://www.iplocation.net/find-ip-address and http://ip4.me and http://ip6.me/ to confirm a new IP address upon VPN connection. Looking on the gateway though, the IP address remains unchanged evn after a logoff and cache clear. What's going on?

Are you expecting the router to show the VPN assigned IP? That's not how it works. The VPN is a layer on top of your router connection. It doesn't replace it.
