    Hi Guys!

    I didn't find any solution for my problem in the whole internet :-(
    May be one of you can help me...

    I'm connected to my local ISP via WiFi.
    WRT is set to Client Mode and Internet Connection type to DHCP.
    I can connect internet using a VPN dial-up connection on my Windows workstation.

    But I would like to setup my WRT manage the PPTP connection like this:

    ISP <-> WiFi <-> PPtP <-> WRT <-> MyLAN

    So I changed the Internet Connection type to PPTP, and entered all required data...
    I tried out all settings a lot of firmwares (Alchemy, Talisman, DD-WRT) but I always get a Connection Failed message :cry:

    Any hints?

    Unfortunately you are going to need 2 wireless routers to do this. 1 to act as a client for the wifi and another to host your internal wifi. In DD-WRT you would go to the wireless settings and change it from AP mode to client and then enter the appropriate information into the wireless security page.

    The WRT is set to Client mode and I also get a TCP/IP connection to my ISP's internal network. The only one think fails is to istablish a PPTP tunnel form WRT to the ISP!
    As I wrote, PPTP form my Windows trough the WRT works.

    PS: I do not need an internal WiFi, just CAT5...
