Here's my situation: I have Comcast cable internet service at home. I have three computers (Macs, but it shouldn't matter); one using 802.11g, one using 802.11b, and one is located so it can just connect via ethernet. I also have a special "IPOffice" telephone which is supposed to allow me to work from home, if it can be connected to the office phone network through a VPN. At work, we have a Linux box running Freeswan, which is what we're supposed to tunnel to. One of my coworkers has made this work with an older Linksys router; I'm afraid I don't remember the actual model. At present, he is setting up a tunnel from his linksys box to the Freeswan server, and then simply running his entire home network through the VPN; he simply plugs the phone into his switch at home, it finds the phone network at work, and it works. The WRV54G looked like a suitable piece of hardware for me to do the same thing, plus it had the wireless capability, which I needed. But after several hours of messing around with it, with my coworker's help (he both set up his own VPN with the older box, and runs the Freeswan server at work), it simply refused to connect. It almost appears to be waiting for an incoming connection, which makes me fear that this box is intended as a VPN server, not as a client. Anybody have an insight? Should I return this box, and if so, can you recommend one that can do what I need? Thanks!
