VPN Settings HOWTO for Billion BiPAC 7402VGO Router 
This post contains instructions on how to configure your Billion BiPAC 7402VGO ADSL modem/router to use a VPN connection with StrongVPN (www.strongvpn.com)

Assumed: Your internet connection is already established using your router. You have a StrongVPN account. You know how to access the administration interface of the 7402VGO router.

1. Access your router's administration interface via web browser of your choice.
2. Go to: Configuration -> VPN -> PPTP, click on the Create hyperlink.
3. Ensure Remote Access is selected and click the Next button.
4. Fill out the details of the form:
Connection Name: StrongVPN
Type: Ensure Dial out is selected
Server IP Address (or domain name): Server Address from StrongVPN Account
Setup Instructions email
Username: Username from email
Password: Password from email
Active as default route: Check Enable
Leave all other settings as-is. Click the Apply button.
5. To enable the VPN connection:
Go to: Configuration -> VPN -> PPTP and select Enable for the 'StrongVPN'
connection. Click the Apply button.
6. To disable the VPN connection:
Go to: Configuration -> VPN -> PPTP and select Disable for the 'StrongVPN'
connection. Click the Apply button.
7. To check the connection status:
Go to: Status -> PPTP Status and the details of the 'StrongVPN' connection
should be in the table if the connection is enabled. It will show details of
what is working and what is not. My status, when all is ok, shows:
dialout, enable = green tick, active = green tick, tunnel connected = green
tick, call connected = green tick, encryption = encryption enabled mppe
128bits stateful mode

Troubleshooting:
The only problem I can imagine you should encounter is if your connection is active but your computers are still not using the VPN. You can tell if this is happening if your computers are seen online using your local ISP's IP address instead of the remote VPN server's IP. If this is the case, you need ensure you enabled 'Active as default route' when you set up the connection details.
