Hi. I have two Linksys E900 routers. One is running DD-WRT (router 2) and StrongVPN openvpn code. The other is just a router (router 1). The issue I have is that I only get VPN connection if it is set up as follows: DSL into router 1, connection from router 1 to router 2 internet connection, Pc connected to router 2. my tv box then needs vpn connected to router 2. 
This works fine I get the tv I want. The problem I an having is that is I try to connect my pc to router one, bypassing the VPN router 2 then the tv box fails to connect to VPN and the tvbox cannot download or connect to a UK ip. Also, when I connect as above I cannot even get internet access on my pc. Sometimes i would like to access the interned not going through a VPN.

Do command "tracert" from your PC when connected to router 2, and then also do one when connected to router 1.


Report back here the output of both commands.


FYI: this will contain IP addresses that will tell us what ISP you have, ...

Decide if you want to post this information here.
