Greetings,
Any advice how to set up wireless router/vpn Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH as a PPTP client on its WAN interface (not a VPN server).
Thanks

Simple, centralized multimedia control

Watch and learn to see how ATEN provided an easy and effective way for three jointly-owned pubs to control the 60 televisions located across their three venues utilizing the ATEN Control System, Modular Matrix Switch and HDBaseT extenders.

Once firmware dd-wrt is uploaded on router, then it can be used as PPTP client:

to summarize - default firmware allows limited pppoe and pptp to connect provider only, if you need more you need alternate firmware
