I have just purchased this. I use it to connect to a hotel via Ethernet. Then I have a second VPN router connecting to the 750s LAN. The LAN is working as my laptop gets internet access but the router doesn’t. The VPN uses PPTP. The 750 came with firmware 3.010 Installed, I’m not very tech so please be gentle with me. Anyone any ideas…
Why do you have two routers when one suffices?
What is the second “VPN router”? Another 750S or something else?
PPTP is obsolete and I am not sure it’s supported by GL anymore.
It’s a separate router. Supplied by liberty Sheild. My old mt300n worked perfectly with the router. GLi says pptp is still supported. I want a separate router so I choose what connects to the vpn. I’m wondering if the firmware is the problem as I’ve noticed it’s a Beta?..what’s the last stable release and how do I install it?
Firmware details here:
Latest testing firmware (at least for the 750S) has policy routing which might solve your problems (using just the GL router on it’s own).
Step 1: Install ipk
# opkg update && opkg install kmod-nf-nathelper-extra
Step 2: Change Somthing
# echo "net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_helper = 1" >> /etc/sysctl.d/local.conf # vi /etc/firewall.user
Add this lines to the file /etc/firewall.user :
iptables -t raw -A OUTPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 1723 -j CT --helper pptp
Finally, please reboot the router.
