I am fairly new at this. I had the WRV54G and had a miserable time with it, and after reading the forums, I returned it. I now have a second WRT54G for testing. I have been reading about the third party software but do not know which one to use. I have loaded a couple of them, but do not know how to configure the VPN part. Maybe I am trying to do something that is not even possible. What I want to do is be able to configure a remote unit away from my office to get my data at my office at home. Can anyone give me an idea of which one of the third party softwares may be best for my needs. I will then look towards that forum for support. OR if anyone has a manual to assist set up VPN with third party software.. please let me know.
