Question about D-Link DI-804HV - 4-Port Broadband VPN Router DI-804HV - 4-Port Broadband VPN Router [ DI-804HV ] (109528)
I have a DI-804HV,and I would like to setup a PPTP VPN connection so I can connect to the DI-804HV using the Windows PPTP client. Right now for the testing purpose I have a network cable connected from my DI-804HV to my computer directly.
I have followed the following HOWTO: http://tiny.cc/fKFKq
when I try to connect to the DI-804HV I get a "Verifying username and password" after which it disconnects.
I have tried from many different computers, and I have even restored the DI-804HV to its factory defaults few times. But always the same.
Any ideas, on what could be wrong?

Step 1: Log into the web based configuration of the router by typing in the IP address of the router (default: 192.168.0.1) in your web browser. By default the username is admin and there is no password. Step 2: Click the VPN button on the left column, select the checkbox to Enable the VPN, and then in the box next to Max. number of tunnels, enter the maximum numbers of VPN tunnels that you would like to have connected. Step 3: In the space provided, enter the Tunnel Name for ID number 1, select IKE, and then click More. Step 4: In the Local Subnet and Local Netmask fields enter the network identifier for DI-804HV´s LAN and the corresponding subnet mask. Step 5: In the Remote Subnet and Remote Netmask fields enter the network identifier for the DI-804V´s LAN and the corresponding subnet mask. Step 6: In the Remote Gateway field enter the WAN IP address of the remote DI-804V and in the Preshared Key field, enter a key which must be exactly the same as the Preshared Key that is configured on the DI-804V. Step 7: Click Apply and then click on Select IKE Proposal... Step 8: Enter a name for proposal ID number 1 and select Group 2 from the DH Group drop-down menu. Step 9: Select 3DES as the Encryption Algorithm and SHA-1 as the Authentication Algorithm. Step 10: Enter a Lifetime value of 28800 and then select Sec. as the unit for the lifetime value. Step 11: Select 1 out of the Proposal ID drop-down menu and click Add To, which will add the proposal that was just configured to the IKE Proposal Index. Click Apply and then click Back. Step 12: Click on Select IPSec Proposal... Step 13: Enter a name for proposal ID number 1 and select None from the DH Group drop-down menu. Step 14: Select ESP as the Encapsulation Protocol. Step 15: Select 3DES as the Encryption Algorithm and MD5 as the Authentication Algorithm. Step 16: Enter a Lifetime value of 3600 and then select Sec. as the unit for the lifetime value. Step 17: Select 1 out of the Proposal ID dropdown menu and click Add To, which will add the proposal that was just configured to the IPSec Proposal Index. Click Apply and then click Restart. Configuring the DI-804V: Step 1: Access the router?s web configuration by entering the router?s IP address in your web browser. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1. Login using your password. The default username is admin and the password is blank. Help Accessing Web Management Step 2: Click on Basic Setup and then select Device IP Settings on the left. Step 3: Change the LAN IP address so that it is on a different subnet than the LAN of the DI-804HV (ie 192.168.1.1). Step 4: Click Next until you reach the Save & Restart screen. Click Save & Restart and then click Basic Setup once the unit has rebooted. Step 3: Click on VPN Settings. Step 4: Name your VPN connection and click ADD. Step 5: In Remote IP Network and Remote IP Netmask fields enter the network identifier and corresponding subnet mask of the DI-804HV´s LAN. Step 6: In the Remote Gateway IP field enter the WAN IP address of the DI-804HV and make sure that the Network Interface is set to WAN Ethernet. Step 7: Verify that Secure Association is set to IKE and that Perfect Forward Secure is Disabled. Step 8: Verify the Encryption Protocol is set to 3DES and enter in your Preshared Key. The Preshared Key needs to be identical to the one configured on the DI-804HV Step 9: Leave the Key Life and IKE Life Time values at their default levels and click SAVE. Step 10: Click Next and then click on Save & Restart Establishing a connection: Step 1: Open a command prompt (Start > Run and type CMD) and from a computer on the internal LAN of the DI-804HV, ping the IP address of a computer that is on the internal LAN of the DI-804V, or vice versa. Step 2: Once you begin to receive replies, the VPN connection has been established. Step 3: To view the Status of the VPN on the DI-804V, click on Device Status. Step 4: From the Device Status screen click on VPN Status. Step 5: When the VPN has been established, the Status will be Active.

The "Virtual Server" setting is designed to give the general public access to a network resrouce (web/ftp/media server) on your internal network. If your the VPN concentrator is external to your network (meaning you'll have to use the internet to connect to it), then you won't need to define a virtual server on the DI-624.
You'll just need to enable the IPSEC and PPTP VPN Passthrough which it sounds like you've already done this. I've run into some ISP's that block VPN connections out of their network. If you have the ability, try to directly connect your laptop into your cable/DSL modem in place of your router and see if you can make a VPN connection, if not contact your ISP, if you can then verify you enabled the VPN passthroughs because your router is blocking them.
GIve it a shot and let us know your results.

First set up an static IP address on your computer with a range 192.168.3.x, once you connect to the DI go to >> LAN Settings and change there the DI IP to be in your range of 192.168.2.x.
If you use win XP here is a link how to set up a static IP with your computer:
