i've tried different firmware version and even with the latest beta one, it's still there. The support reply that it is a faulty device so : RMA! I don't think that's the proper solution because a friend has the same problem. so i'd like you do a simple test and tell me if you have the same issue. In the VPN menu: enable the 4 options on top, in the "remote secure group" : select "ANY" (i know this is not secure, but that's not the point of this discussion ) Then enable the VPN : after a short time the connection drop: can't surf, can't msn. I must set this option to "subnet" for example so that i can have the connection back. Can you confirm? thanks.
