    VPN is up and ping is ok from both sides of tunnel but I do not see any computers from both sides in Network place. What is the problem. I activated sharing, did same work group and still can not find any computer by name by IP is good. Please help me find out what is the problem. Thank you.

    Normally when computers on either end of the tunnel can't see each other, it due to a software firewall on the computer that doesn't "trust" the private IP of the computer on the other end. You must set the software firewalls, XP's firewall, ZoneAlarm, etc. to trust the computers and devices on the other tunnel end.

    actually I tuned the firewall off on both end's computers...and still can't see network drives...

    You can ping the computers at the opposite tunnel end and not just the VPN end point router at that end? Just checking to make certain I understood you correctly.

    yes I can ping the computers at the opposite tunnel end and not just the VPN end point router at that end....can ping by IP address not by name of computer.

    I cant say much about the rvs as i dont use it but the wrv has issues with netbios. So you will not see the computers in network neighborhood but you can map to the machine and shares in question you ip.

    As far as i know the rvs is a great box. I know personally the wrv200 with .24 code is a great box. I run 2 ipsec vpn's continuously and occasionally connect a couple quickvpn clients to the wrv200. The setup you have should work great, the only thing is you are not going to beable to use netbios across the tunnel, however as stated you can connect to the far side machine via IP or RDP or whatever you like. The tunnel will pass the traffic just not the netbios correctly. For me the far side 192.168.100.100 so i connect via \\192.168.100.100\(sharename)

    I checked my RVS4000 and I founded that in Advanced setting it has NETBIOS Broadcasting but in WRV200 doesn't. So I'm gonna buy another RVS4000 for my all remote offices. What do you think guys I'm right?

    well if I could connect by this way that's ok but I don't it doesn't work for me.

    Check the DNS on your clients

    Are you using the Linksys QuickVPN utility? Several models of linksys routers that support the QuickVPN utility have an irritating property of downloading their own IP address to the TCP/IP settings on the network adapter over which the QuickVPN link is established. If you have a Microsoft AD domain running on your LAN, the DNS server should be your AD DC, not the Linksys router. There's lots of people having the same problem, including me. I have an RV016, other people with other WRT and RV models have posted identical compaints. Look around - you'll find lots of posts. The only answers at this point are workarounds until Linksys improves their OS.
