    Is there a wireless router that you folks recommend that will pass GRE packets and perform NAT-T properly?

    thanks in advance.

    Yes...as Doclarge told me.

    BEFVP41 router supports NAT-T and GRE.

    Ah but the BEFVP41 isn't wireless ;) Of course you could just add a WAP54G to it to achieve the same thing :)

    yep or a cheap WRT54G/GS with a 3rd party firmware for extra features.

    You can look at the dlink di824vup, but, that's not linksy (sorry)

    Toxic sent me a link from Tom's networking that shows how to create an ipsec policy with the ms vpn client that might work for a connection:


    Keep in mind, passing GRE is needed "if" you're going to be running a vpn server behind your router whereas NAT-T allows interpretation of private ip addresses (needed mostly for vpn from behind a router to another remote endpoint).

    If you're trying to run a vpn server, the WRV54G "is not" going to do it, period. Look for the dlink di824vup, get a BEFVP41 with a WAP54G, or find a pre version 5 WRT54G with third party firmware :)

    Will a BEFVP41 work in conjunction with the WRV54G? That way I don't have to get rid of the WRV54G which works well as a wireless access point.

    Yep you could still use the WRV54G as an AP, just connect it to the BEFVP41 via one of the LAN ports :)
