that is just gliffy for that picture.
Who said anything about openvpn?? If you have dd-wrt on your netgear then set it up as a vpn client and setup policy based routing..
What vpn connection are you using - how do you expect it to work if your router does not support it? I would pick a vpn provider that supports what client you want to use.
Personally I would just a get a lowend vps and run whatever I wanted on it for $15 a year or so
As to "I don't have a way of connecting by computer via ethernet to the router"
No clue to what your thinking your issue with not having wire is? It was a simple picture trying to show how it could be setup with different networks? And not have to use policy routing. You could be wired or wireless in any setup as a client.
As to dd-wrt setup for openvpn?? What version of firmware did you install - click click you can setup client
Also where are you looking that info is on other pages, outdated? Are you not on the wiki?
I'm glad you found this thread, I was really hoping you did, because I've seen you are crazy smart with this stuff. I'm the complete opposite. I did look at that wiki, but I can't make sense of it in anyway. I simply don't understand it.
As for the wifi/ethernet comment, I was just throwing that out there, because I didn't know if it mattered or not. So I should be looking for a VPN solution that uses PPTP? Or should I be trying to get OpenVPN installed. The reason that came up, is that the couple I have spoken to, including the VPN service I purchased, said I needed OpenVPN to connect via the router.
Appreciate any help you can give, I'm a little out of my element here.

That's the problem, It's Version 24 Beta 2 installed on the router, but it didn't come with openVPN. If I had openVPN, I wouldn't have an issue, but the steps to get it installed aren't exactly noob friendly.

I will check it tonight when I get home and get back to you. Thanks for looking into it.
So I went to the router database, and this was the only software available, can I just throw a generic firmware on there can I?

I've just installed DD-WRT from the link provided. It's still the same version I was running earlier when I posted the screenshot above, but the OpenVPN option is now available.
I've been told PPTP is not as good, and that OpenVPN with the way to go. I don't learn anything I just taking the easy option.
