i am not sure if this is the proper forum to post this question so hopefully i will not get booted out of here for asking. i want to accomplish the following. 1. connect two networks via vpn tunnel - this should be "simple" but reading about what works (and what does not) with some of the linksys routers i figured before i bought any more hardware i would ask some others about their experiences. the hardware we have now will not do it - the one network uses a wrt54 router which does not seem to work as an end point, the second network has a wrv200 router which says it supports a vpn end point. everyone i have talked to said my life will be easier if i use matched routers at each end so i have been looking at the rv42's and 82's as a possible solution and am looking for comment on the advisability of doing this. i would then use the existing routers simply as wireless access points. we will have at most 2 client computers on each end accessing the opposite network. network 1 is connected to the internet via dsl and network 2 is connected via cable (comcast). so if anyone has advice on either my choice of routers or alternative suggestions i would greatly appreciate it. the things i am worried about mostly are: a) does the vpn tunneling work? b) how good/bad is the performance (i.e do these devices have enough memory), c) are they stable and d) do you have to be a rocket scientist to configure the vpn tunnels? 2. we have two "road warriors" that will need to be able to access both networks - i am hoping the the linksys quickvpn utility will allow us to make this a reality. both these laptops will connect to the internet via the sprint network when on the road. in fact i have already tested the quickvpn utility with the existing wvr200 and it seems to work. the connection works fine but seems slow and i don't know if it is because the wrv200 is the cause - it is quite cheap so i suspect it has very little memory. most of the access we do is against our crm system, there is very little file transfer when these guys are on the road so i would expect the access speeds to be similar to direct connect, but here again i am quite new to this vpn thing. again, any comment on the quickvpn or a suggestion about an alternative. i have read that you can create a vpn client using windows/xp and don't need any other client software - should i be investaging this more? any help would be greatly appreciated.
