VPN Passthru unstable

    I have the following setup :

    Internet -> WRT54G -> VPN HARDWARE BOX (router with VPN enabled port 1)-> Office PC

    The VPN box is connected using LAN, not wlan.

    The VPN box is a CLIENT, used to connect to my company network.

    I have enabled VPN Passthru in the WiFi box settings, and it DOES work.....I do have problems keeping my connection though.

    After maby a couple of hours (varies greatly) I loose the connection to the VPN connected network...that sucks.

    Does anyone have any experience with this issue?

    WRT54GS - VPN unstable

    When trying to use Cisco VPN software to connect to a Cisco hardware box everything works fairly OK until we are serveral to connect to the same VPN concentrator. When multiple persons connect to the same VPN concentrator, average time the connection stays stable drops under 3 min.

    There is no difference in behaviour when connecting thru the wireless or the wired interfaces.

    When two persons use the software but connect to different VPN concentrators, the stability is quite OK.

    Up to now, I have no clue about the cause.
    Even upgrading to the latstest available firmware did not solve the problem.
