Are there any wireless N routers in the SOHO category that support PPTP VPN as a server (not pass through) and DDNS? If so, which ones are the most reliable?

I have a SnapGear SG300 router that is acting up. It was acting as my VPN server, DHCP server, DNS etc. I have a separate N WAP. I would like to replace my SnapGear (which was a great router) and the WAP with one device.

You may be able to get an N router that works with DD-WRT. This alternate firmware can be configured with a PPTP server.

That would probably work but I am looking for the "shrink wrap" solution if possible. – Matt Spradley Nov 20 '09 at 16:45
Looking around, I'm not sure if one exists. You might be able to get a router with a PPTP server and another with wireless N to use just as an access point (turn off DHCP, connect to the LAN instead of WAN, and make sure to give it an appropriate address outside of your DHCP server.) – moshen Nov 23 '09 at 20:02
Just realized that it negates the "one device" aspect of your question. – moshen Nov 23 '09 at 20:03

@Matt - Take a look at the Cisco RV110W. It has an integrated PPTP server but comes with a limitation that I find pretty significant. You must make your internal address range 10.x.x.1. Check out this post I recently did.
