L2TP/IPSec DD-WRT

Rate this question

Question

Guest

I have noticed that the setup guide for the L2TP/IPSec for DD-WRT routers redirects to the openvpn guide. Is it possible to connect via L2TP/IPSec on DD-WRT routers? If so, what are the instructions to do so.

 

Unfortunately, I own a DD-WRT router that does not have support for OpenVPN due to having a small memory size. I can connect via PPTP, but I would prefer the slightly more secure L2TP/IPSec if possible.

 

Please let me know what settings to use.

Hey there - you can setup L2TP using the steps below:

 

1. Login to your DDWRT router's web interface.

2. Setup

3. Basic Setup

4. Wan Setup > Connection Type: L2TP

5. Username: Your VPN Username

6. Password: Your VPN Password.

7. Gateway: The L2TP server IPs can be found @ https://torguard.net/serverstatus.php

8. Connection strategy: Keep Alive: Redial Period 180 seconds

9. STP: Disable

10. Leave everything as it is.

11. Save and Apply Settings.

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Regards

I tried those settings, but it won't connect on US12.torguard following a router reboot . Should "Use DHCP" be selected as "yes" or "no"?

 

Also, does this method of connecting to the torguard servers provide any encryption? My limited understanding was that L2TP needed to be paired with IPsec to encrypt the connection and that DD-WRT has not implemented IPsec. If this is the case, it might be better for me to connect through OpenVPN?

Hello

 

You can use DHCP yes..

 

Your right, this method doesn't support IPSec so its pretty much "Masking" your IP, good for streaming if thats all you are doing.

 

OpenVPN is always recommended above most other protocols.
