    Bought my spanky new WRT54G (v2) a few days ago. Internet access fine, wireless fine, but can't seem to be able to configure it for VPN.

    Without the router, I can connect to my work pc fine no problems, but with the router, it keeps failing, unable to connect. I'm using SecuRemote as the VPN software and Windows Remote Desktop as the viewer.

    Been tweaking with the settings since I got it but still no luck. Updated the firmware to v3.03.1 but still no luck. Spoken to my IT guys and they said secuRemote only works with Multi IPSEC. Looking through the literature for the WRT54G, it mentions IPSEC but doesn't say whether its multi or single. Is the WRT54G not compatible with Multi IPSec VPNs??

    Any help with getting it to work would be greatly appreaciated. I'm so out of ideas now :(

    I don't knwo anything about multi ipsec but you could try to forward the used ports to your pc so you don't have to rely on the vpn passthrough.

    Sorry I have no clue about those ports. But you could try and monitor the connection attempts or ask the admin about the ports.

    I have not had a problem using it with Checkpoint Secure Remote. Need to check the Security/VPN Tab and make sure that IPSEC Passthough is enabled. I have PPTP and L2TP Disabled.

    Good to hear that someone has it working.

    Which firmware are you using? and what other settings have you used?? Did you have to set the dmz, porting forward etc?? or left them as defaults??

    At last, got it to work!! thanks to the Linksys online chat help :)

    So for anyone with a similiar problem, to get the router to work with SecuRemote, just set the port forwarding for the client pc to 47,50,500,1723 and port trigger to 500. Simple when you know how :/

    I've gotten it to work with secureclient also, just make sure the vpn passthrough box has been checked. On a side note, has anyone been able to run the linux secure client on the wrt54g itself?

    Sorry about not replying sooner.

    Well I have used all of the offical released Firmware and right now am running Hyper-WRT 2.1.2g . I did not have a problem with any of them. It worked out of the box. IPSEC Passthrough is enabled PP2P and L2TP are disabled.

    Just forward 3389 tcp+udp to ur server. That is the port that RDP uses.
