Important! By setting up a L2TP VPN connection on a DD-WRT router your IP will be changed but your traffic will NOT be encrypted. That happens because the connection does not use IPSec.
In order to setup L2TP VPN on your DD-WRT router you have to flash your router with DD-WRT firmware and set router local IP address as 192.168.1.1. Also please check if you can connect to Internet via Wi-Ffi from this router. We also recommend to check VPN on your PC/Mac to ensure that your network configuration and ISP allow L2TP/IPsec connections.
Important: L2TP can NOT be used concurrently with PPPoE or Static IP if you use DD-WRT flashed router as main router. We recommend you to use DD-WRT flashed router as the second one.
Connect to your router. For that you have to put in your browser the following address: http://192.168.1.1.
Also you have to set your network connection to obtain IP address automatically if you connect to your router via Ethernet.
Configure your DD-WRT router to share your regular internet connection.
After the reboot VPN is set up. You can check the connection going to “Status” tab and select “WAN” from there. Login status should be “Connected”. If it says “Disconnected” click on “Connect” button and wait for about 1 minute. After that the connection should be established. You can check if you are connected to a VPN server by going to Whats My IP and see if your IP is changed.
