Today industries leading SOHO router vendors supply devices which support L2TP like D-Link Wireless Router, Belkin Wireless Router etc. In case if your DSL ISP provides L2TP connection, while configuring Internet connection in your router, you may prompt to enter a username and password. L2TP address mode can be of two types. They are:

1. Static
2. Dynamic

If your ISP provide you a static address mode, while configuring your router to connect your network, you should enter the L2TP IP address, L2TP gateway address, subnet mask, server IP etc along with username and password. If it is dynamic, you just need to enter username and password.
