How to Configure WiFi Router for VPN Connection

Traditional computer networks use routers and wired connections to link the computers in a group. A Virtual Private Network (VPN) uses the Internet to connect the same group of computers. If you use a VPN in conjunction with your Wi-Fi wireless internet router, it can give you the same benefits of a wired network connection without the restrictions of being tethered to a central router. With a VPN connection, your network is as flexible and portable as your wireless Internet connection.
