Hi All,

Kindly help me with this..my ISP has blocked the VoIP applications (& many other web sites/ports). Currently I am using a VPN service (Strong VPN) to route all of my traffic from the home to this VPN server (located in Europe etc) and this enables me to avoid any of the ISP's restrictions. I am using standard windows VPN client connection. I have few devices which don't support VPN & still require the ports/applications to be unblocked. Therefore I am planning to buy a router which supports VPN functionality. I have found Buffalo "WZR-G300NH2" being one of the best products for this purpose. I require the confirm from the "Gurus" here that this router will serve my purpose... Please confirm at the earliest,

regards,
Ali

I don’t see that specific model on the dd-wrt database, but sometimes the database is out of date too. As long as you know it’s supported, I see no reason it shouldn’t work if only because the dd-wrt VPN client doesn’t require all that much. In fact, you can configure any cheap router behind your existing router, WAN to LAN respectively, configure the VPN router’s WAN w/ PPTP (rather than the default DHCP), and then connect wired/wireless clients to the appropriate router, VPN or non-VPN, as you prefer. Simple.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply on the post..can you please recommend some cheap router with dd-wrt (VPN client functionality) .. Let me explain again what I want..
I have one wirless broadband router already connected at home, it has PPPoE configuration given by the ISP.. can I have another dd-wrt router connected behind this existing router and configure VPN PPTP or L2TP in it. Then at home, I will have two different access points; 1 existing and 2nd the dd-wrt (with VPN connectivity)..any device connected to the main existing router, traffic will go straight to the internet, and for the devices connected to this VPN router, all traffic will be routed through the VPN server (located in US); in this way, using VPN connectivity, i will be able to avoid the ISP restrictions. please help

Perhaps you can pm me also, or post here if rules allow it.

Thanks

Can I use a router to set up my own VPN server,from my home connection, I could access from over seas?
