    trying to connect to my WRV54G with dial-up connection.
    after many hours of trials, I got the right conf and finally saw "verifying network.." but alas immediatly followed with "Remote Gateway is not Responding".
    I'm using xp pro, no firewall, no other vpn software than QuickVPN.
    wget_error.txt says "0K 142.58 KB/s".
    Any idea is welcome ! thanks

    Try rebooting the wrv54 because there are times large downloads through the configuration off. Next, look for software that might be sharing the connection (443/500) that quickvpn needs.

    my linksys is behind a dsl router (Dlink 502-T); the dsl router has the public ip, and forward vpn ports to linksys. Could it be the reason of the problem ?
    Should I configure the dsl-router as a bridge and put my public ip address directly on the linksys ?

    From what I've read on this site, and my own experience, I would suggest trying just that. Don't forward the IPSec ports, just put your public IP directly on the Linksys.

    Since QuickVPN does a 443 connection to the router to get IPSec information, having the information being forwarded through the modem might be snafu'ing up something.

    Try setting the modem to "bridge" and then put your public IP on your router and see if it works.

    Hi,

    I have got the same issue.
    I do not have a fixed IP adress but it never changes because the leasetime is set for a long time by the ISP.
    But my Linksys RV082 is set to get an IP by using DHCP.

    When remote and trying to connect I get the error that the remote gateway is not responding.
    Ports are open, shut off firewalls to check but still the same error.
    No other apps are using these ports.

    Just a thought. When looking at the port page when logged in in the Linksys the gateway IP adress is not mentioned.
    Just wondering if someone can use the QuickVPN client when the gateway is on DHCP.

    Thanks in advance for any tip.

    Yep,

    I do it all the time. Have you checked the quickvpn guide to make sure your configuration isn't off?

    You haven't routed your whole IP traffic into a VPN connection that's not set up at the remote end have you ? It's some time since I've had Linksys firmware loaded but I remember there's a option to send all traffic over a VPN connection which on the webpage is worded very poorly and looks like your just enabling VPN functionality.

    The option Chris is referring to is "VPN Gateway", normally you would have this disabled and "VPN Tunnel" enabled.

    Wow,

    Thanks for all the replies.

    DocLarge, Well, the Quick VPN guide, I'm not sure where you are reffering to. I found something on the internet. I walked through and it seems everything is ok. IPSEC is running on my laptop. I have no other VPN software running.

    When looking at the summary the LAN Gateway shows dashes. Might this be the reason why I get the error Gateway not responding. The gateway IP address of my ISP is shown at the WAN port.

    Chris, Taz, I only want to use remote access by using QuickVPN.
    I have made a test account under the tab VPN Client Access.
    This should be all that I need to do isn't it? Install the client on my laptop and it should connect. I did not read any other settings to be required. So no tunnel or what so ever right?

    I tried setting up an PPTP and this works. I get an ip address and can access my ethernetdrive by mounting it.

    Any idea what to do next to get the quickvpn running?

    Below the LOG.

    Yep you just need to add an account, the settings under Security/VPN are for site to site VPN's or client to site when using a third party VPN client i.e. not QuickVPN.

    Hi!

    I had the same problem!

    Solution:
    Diasble the firewall on your XP machine,
    Disable DoS (Denial of Service) on your router,
    Install the latest QuickVPN client!

    Best wishes,

    Systemfarmer; Dude, you are 3+ years late on this thread! :)

    A majority of us have moved on from the WRV54G because the hardware on it was never enabled (via the firmware) to be the "beast" it could have been. Currently, if you're looking for something "matured," take a look at the RV220w...
