How to connect to the Internet via the L2TP and get the traffic encrypted between the router and wireless adapters.?

I would like to connect to a new provider which is using L2TP to connect the users to the Internet. I have the router which supported L2TP, among the other methods of connecting the router to the Internet. Can I install L2TP on the router and use it to connect the users to the Internet via Wi-Fi without having to create each VPN connection on the client computers? I know that the traffic will not be encrypted between the wireless adapters and the router in this case. Can I use the third party VPN connection on the client's computer to have the traffic encrypted between the adapters and the router. In other words:
1) I want that the users connect to the router, that get connected to the Internet via the L2TP (on the router side as login method with appropriate credentails given by provider) and the users would have the possibility to get the Internet or only view the TV channels via the VLC Player, that become accessible only when the VPN connection is up.
2) I'd like to have the traffic encrypted between adapters and a router
If the described above will not work, any other suggestions on how to achieve my goal will be taken into consideration.
TIA!

Very good resources, appreciated! But additionally I'd like to know if I could install L2TP just on the router, as a gate to the Internet without having to create and use VPN connections on the clients computers, and use the router directly. Did anyone do such the experiment and what was the result? It's highly needed!
" Did anyone do such the experiment and what was the result? "
The original question was answered.

The expanded or new question should be posted as a new question...
Thnx for additional information Michael, just found in Google that the router can connect to the Internet via L2TP with a breeze!
