PPTP can NOT be used concurrently with PPPoE or Static IP if you want to use DD-WRT flashed router as your main router. We recommend you to use DD-WRT flashed router as the second one.

We presume the following configurations:

  • You have already tested PPTP VPN on your PC/Mac to ensure that your network configuration and ISP allows PPTP connections.
  • You have already flashed your router with DD-WRT firmware v24.Builds newer than 15962 may have pptp client broken so be sure to upgrade or downgrade to a working one.Build 14896 have been used while preparing this tutorial.
  • You have already hard reset(30/30/30 method) or restore the factory defaults via administration menu.
  • Your DD-WRT router is connected to your first router via wifi or ethernet.
  • When you connect to DD-WRT router via wi-fi or ethernet  from your PC/MAC ,you can access internet.
  • Your DD-WRT router local IP address is 192.168.1.1
  • Your first router has different LAN subnet for ex. 192.168.0.1

 

Step:1 Connect to the dd-wrt router using either an Ethernet cable, or by joining the wireless network ‘dd-wrt’. Open a web browser, and load the following address: http://192.168.1.1 Note, set your network connection to obtain IP address automatically if you connect to your router via Ethernet.

Check your dd-wrt firmware.Minimum software version for VPN setup is v24.Builds newer than 15962 may have pptp client broken so be sure to upgrade or downgrade to a working one.Build 14896 have been used while preparing this tutorial.
