    In order to get my 2860 to work I had to do just a few additions to the above:
    1, Go into WAN -> General Setup and disable all the WANS except the one dialing out.
    2, In the LAN-LAN VPN setup you also need to set ROUTE to NAT.

    I have tried to set up a draytek 2830 modem router but, like the below comment, although it shows a valid connection on the lan to lan vpn page of the router I cant load any pages. The occasional google search result page but nothing heavier than that. Any thoughts?

    Tried this configuration and whilst it looks like there is a VPN connection established, as soon as I try and route any traffic over the VPN nothing happens. Not sure if it’s a DNS issue or a IP config issue, but I have exactly the same config as the screenshots above.

    I have a Virgin Media Hub in Modem Mode, if that helps?
