Probably a little late for you, but I use AirVPN perfectly well through Asus WRT Merlin, so it certainly is possible - I have been struggling with a more recent OVPN file I created but an old one I have used for years is fine. There's a possibility that there's an incompatibility that's been accidentally added to the config generator. Either put in a support request, or check your router's logs.

Mine throws this up when I try one of the newer configs, whereas TunnelBlick on my Mac is fine with it:

Jun 30 20:51:37 ovpn-client1[7810]: /bin/ip -6 addr add fde6:7a:7d20:1e28::10b5/64 dev tun11
Jun 30 20:51:37 ovpn-client1[7810]: Linux ip -6 addr add failed: external program exited with error status: 2

And a quick search brings this up - You (like I) probably have IPv6 disabled, enable it and it'll probably work. Explains why my really old config works fine as it's before they started adding IPv6 to their configs.

AND, after a quick test, it works fine. I went for the IPv6 Passthrough option. No idea if that's right or wrong, but it works.
