I'd like to bypass the IP filters for Xbox Live so I can download American games to my American Xbox 360 (I'm US Air Force stationed in Okinawa).
I found a company that offered an L2TP VPN service but I had the following conversation with their rep via email:
No, Your router can not config as a vpn client.
PPTP and L2TP is your "Internet Connection Type", Yes, you can set your vpn account information in your router, but you can not connect to our vpn server on the router, because the router without an exist internet connection.

Also, my router's firmware can be viewed online at the router's site, if that helps. http://www.support.dlink.com/emulators/dgl4500/login.htm

Can I use your service to connect via my router? I have attached a picture of my router's L2TP settings page.
If I'm understanding this guy right, he's saying that the option on my router (pictured below) only configures local internet and that entering any other information here would give me no internet because my local internet would be bound to an address out in the ether. But if that's the case, then how would this option do anyone any good at all?
Or am I missing the point entirely? If I'm not missing the point, does anyone know of any companies that sell VPN proxy servers that might work with this router option?
