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

If you *really* mean PPTP Client, then the answer is "You can't do that". Most routers can act as PPTP server only.

Portable, direct connect server access

The ATEN CV211 connects a laptop directly to any server allowing you instant access to perform data maintenance and local operations, for quick troubleshooting, updating, service and repair.

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
