    subj. what if use 2 pptp connections through "owned" routers? these firmwares can do their functions w/o any logs (turned off) I know many routers which don`t work properly (to store logs)

    I think it is the best PRIVACY and TOTAL anonymity. Cause routers has many users inside / connections and they don`t know about their router functioned as VPN server. 2 hops / 2 different countries (vpn over vpn)

    what do you think?

    sorry for my english I`m from Ukraine.:argh: AntiMaidanProject

    This would be a pretty good setup, although I think openvpn is usually a better option than pptp.

    Using dd-wrt also has the benefit of a having a good firewall.

    I'm not sure what OP is proposing.

    First, as root_my_face notes, PPTP is insecure, and it's best to use OpenVPN or some flavor of IPSec.

    It is possible to use consumer routers as VPN clients or servers. Open-source firmware (DD-Wrt, OpenWrt, etc) include OpenVPN, and setup is not hard. While most setup guides focus on OpenVPN clients, configuration for servers is not very different. Here are some resources:
