    Normally i connect to Internet with ethernet-cable from my network card and my machine gets a dynamic IP and then i set up a PPTP-connection with Windows' own VPN-wizard (i enter username, password, as host and untick "Require data encryption"). And every time i boot my computer, i have to manually sign in.

    Now i would like to get my WRT54G to sign up for me (and to keep that connection alive) and to share that connection to my pc and laptop (pc connected with cable, laptop with wlan). How should i do it?

    I've already tried to play around with settings and tried couple different 3rd party firmwares (currently DD-WRT in use). So far i've managed to use PPTP with my laptop through my WRT by signing in as usual.

    Hope i explained clearly. Already tried the search. Thanks in advance.

    have you tried PPoE? I'm willing to bet that's what your ISP is using. Just use the username and pass in there and see what happens
