In this tutorial, we will show you how to set up your Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection on your system by using a wireless DD-WRT router.
Before establishing a connection, you must make sure that you have got a working internet connection, a router that supports PPTP, and a VPN account. A VPN connection does not work on an ISP modem. In order to make your VPN connection work, you need to connect another router with your modem.
