comment VPN (PPTP) connects successfully but unable to ping some devices in the LAN
Since the problem is that the VPN IP 192.168.1.253 I get is in a different subnet. I am thinking about whether it's possible to do some settings in the Cisco router so that when I request the web admin page, it will request on behalf of me, thereby the access points will see it's 192.168.1.1 rather than 192.168.1.253 who requests the page and since it's the same subnet, they should not complain.

I have also checked that both APs currently already have default gateway set to 192.168.1.1.

Method 1 is actually not possible because my working company don't have any workstation. It's a windows WORKGROUP rather than domain environment.

I still haven't done this test but one thing I can confirm is that, when the access points are put in AP mode (yes, they have router / AP mode), the [allow remote management] tick box in the web admin interface will not be available. It seems it's common for different brands of routers to make this option unavailable when in AP mode. So it seems method 3 is not possible.

But after the VPN packets reach the Cisco router, it will unpack the packets before they reach the APs. So the APs should not know these packets in fact do not originate from the local network. Not true?

What you mean is, when my home computer accesses the APs, they see the source IP as my home computer public IP rather than the 192.168.1.253 assigned by the Cisco router? I access these APs on regular basis.
