Does the Open VPN server have an address on your home network? If not, there is a big part of your problem.

What type of router do you have? One approach would be to have the internal address on openVPN match the home network. But then you need a way for the external network to use a different subnet. But that would usually require a business class router.

I have ASUS RT-N65U with ability to add routes (see screenshot), the router have IP
What should I change in my server|client or maybe router configs?
I know this will not sound like fun, but for all the hassle, I would just as soon load OpenWRT on the router and load Open VPN that way. That way, all could possibly run on your router. Otherwise, you can at least use OpenWRT to define multiple LANs, then assign the external interface of the server to that, and the internal one to your existing subnet. That would fix your issue.

As I understand, my router's chipset is Ralink and it's not supporter by Openwrt and DD-WRT, all I found is     So is it so necessarily to change router, or maybe I could do with included features like port switching and static routing?
Sorry, lost track of this one. Actually, your router is supported in OpenWRT, but not DD-WRT:

But something that I would probably look at doing is to set up your OpenVPN server as a bridge, in which case, you don't have to deal with its NAT features and you have all on the same LAN.

Excuse me, but my router isn't Asus RT-N56U but ASUS RT-N65U and it supports only native ASUS firmware. But I recently found that this router has an openvpn feature, that works now fine for me. I suggest this topic is closed
