Internet Access through a VPN

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So my friend is out of town for a few weeks and he has internet from Comcast there, and he wants to play League of Legends. However, LoL is unplayable on Comcast, as explained by this picture that he found: http://i.imgur.com/hbpPihf.png
After reading that, i realized that that person was able to bypass the connection that Comcast uses by using a VPN. So I thought, what if i hosted a VPN for him in order to do the same thing? I use an old 32-bit HP laptop running Windows 8 as a server for random things like this. After spending countless hours of googling, I found out how to host a VPN server within windows by going to network adapters and making a new incoming connection, however i couldn't get it to actually share the internet connection. Eventually, I found this: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/8db49948-1962-408b-9996-4a9584b3500d/internet-access-through-vpn-server-need-help-please
Although thats exactly what i want to do, the computer that im using as a host doesnt have Windows Server, and therefore doesnt have the RRAS service used in that forum post?

So, how can i get my internet connection through the VPN?

a linux box would be much better to use as a VPN endpoint,

you may want to look into OpenVPN for windows though if you insit on keeping windows only
