A friend recommended this site and said I could get the answers I needed! Hope someone out there is able to help as you all look extremely knowledgable. My client recently purchased the WRV54g (firmware v2.36) to allow remote users to access a machine functioning as the fileserver and also to have a wireless network established. She currently has cable for internet service and this would be the only router on the network! I tried following the instructions set forth by Linksys within the user manual but I was not sucessful. Perhaps I did something wrong! My main focus is to set this up quickly and easily I became a little confused with establishing the IP Security Policy within Windows XP as well as the VPN configuration settings within the router itself. Do I need to do any type of "port forwarding" to the machine acting as the file server? How would the remote users access the machine? And, do I need to setup user accounts on the file server that match the user accounts within the VPN for file sharing and security purposes? Sorry to seem dumb here, but is there a easier way to setup this device such as a software utility or a document that pretty much outlines the setup a little more detailed? Just looking for someone who has prior experience setthing this up in the same or similar environment. I have not yet contacted Linksys and have heard bad things contacting them. Any help on this would be great!!
