If the ISP modem has a built in router, it's best to bridge the modem. Having 2 routers on the same line can cause connection problems: Link>Double NAT (http://www.practicallynetworked.com/networking/fixing_double_nat.htm) and How NAT Works (http://computer.howstuffworks.com/nat.htm). Call the ISP and ask to see if the ISP modem can be bridged. To tell if the modem is bridged or not, look at the routers web page, Status/Device Info/Wan Section, if there is a 192.168.0.# address in the WAN IP address field, then the modem is not bridged. If the modem can't be bridged then see if the modem has a DMZ option and input the IP address the router gets from the modem and put that into the modems DMZ.

I too am in a similar predicament with my router https://imgur.com/IRmszNr (https://imgur.com/IRmszNr)
I've never set up my own VPN before, but the router said this would be relatively quick and painless to do. I tried to follow similar instructions here http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=13352.0 (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=13352.0), but the interface is different and I don't know what to put where he puts "192.168.0.101".

Many thanks to the community members on Dlink.

Let me look into this and see if I can get some additional information. I too am not an expert in VPNs and I presume there is additional applications that are needed to be able to access a VPN configuration. What I don't know.  ???

Looking at the manual, the setup on the router side should be as simple as flipping a switch to enable it and setting the username/password/PSK you would like to use.

The difficult part is going to either be
A) ISP issues (such as the bridging concern Mr. Nutz brought up, or the fact that some ISPs are unfriendly towards VPNs)

or they are going to be (and this is where my money is, generally)

B) Involving the setup and environment of the remote side.  The good news is that with an iPhone, there is plenty of documentation to throw at you.  I have a link to the Apple doc below.  In order to make this as simple as possible, you should test the VPN (at least initially) with wifi off, as I am fairly certain that no cellular provider is going to have any issues with VPNs.

Would you happen to know how to set this up on a Windows PC? Or even a Linux machine? I imagine it should be simple, but I have never set up my own VPN before so I may be missing some obvious steps.

In general L2TP over IPsec is far away from being easy because there are many influencing factors that might cause a failure in case of a configuration mismatch between VPN client and VPN server (your DIR-890L). For example:

So far, the only environment I can get it to work is from inside my home network (which is pretty trivial). I can VPN from inside my network to inside my network.

Can't VPN into my home network at work. This may be an outbound firewall issue though. The message is "Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (98.245.85.219) is not responding".


It is set to use a pre-shared key, but all the other settings (aside from username and password) were left as is when configured with Windows 7 Enterprise using Window's built-in VPN application.

Is the device source the IP address the router is getting from the ISP modem/service?
