OK sorry this is long, but I have to admit I must join the party of those having trouble with QuickVPN. I've read many posts from contributors, especially the ever-helpful DocLarge, and I'm sure I've followed the instructions 'to-the-letter', but I just can't get QuickVPN to work. I don't doubt for a minute those who get it working straight away, I'm just envious of you! Here's what I can do:- I've setup a VPN Client account on the WRV54G. On a remote PC running QuickVPN can get to the "Verifying Network...." pop-up window point. If I look at the status page back on the WRV54G it now shows the client as 'Online'. If I run 'ipconfig /all' on the remote PC I get the router's IP address added to the DNS list (e.g. 10.x.x.x). If I try to ping the WRV's IP address, or any of the other PCs on our network, I just get 3 or 4 lines of 'Negotiating IP Security'. So I guess QuickVPN is connecting and getting the tunnel working, but I can get no further. After about 15secs of 'Verifying Network', the window "...remote gateway is not responding..." appears which then disconnects me when OK is clicked. I've read much here about disabling firewalls, removing other VPN software etc, so here's the list of what I have... Work network:- Linksys ADSL2MUE modem, configured as 'bridged mode only'. Linksys WRV54G (V2.38) connected to ADSL2MUE using their standard internet ports. WRV is acting as our DHCP server for our peer-to-peer network - LAN ports of WRV to other PCs and hubs/switches. MTU is set to AUTO. All PCs on our network have user login names so we can share directories etc. This works perfectly within our building, so does our internet connection & wireless. WRV Security Firewall page: Firewall Protection enabled, block anon WAN requests enabled, other settings disabled. WRV Security VPN page: IPSec & PPTP passthrough enabled, others disabled. WRV Status page lists our WAN IP, gateway & DNS servers correctly so the ADSL2MUE is happily working in 'modem-only' mode. When the first VPN Client was setup to test the connection, the WRV wanted to change our IP addresses to 10.x.x.x etc, so I let it. This also means that the LAN address of my remote PC at 192.x.x.x is not going to cause a conflict WHEN I get connected. Remote Client:- BEFW11S4V4 cable router on Motorola SB5100 cable modem. IPSec passthrough enabled. Windows XP Pro - firewall disabled. NIS2004 installed but security is OFF. IPSec service is running. No additional VPN client software installed or running. No communications software installed, except Skype which is shutdown. Also tried on a separate PC running Windows 2000 and a 3rd PC from another location with ADSL connection and no router. Get identical problem, so I assume there's something wrong with my WRV54G setup, or the network it's attached to? Am I missing a trick somewhere? I'm expecting QuickVPN to make a connection, then allow me to enter the IP address and share name of a directory on my work PC. Do I have to set or use DNS in any way? I've not come across anything to that effect but am having to start clutching at straws now. Any advise would be appreciated, likewise I'll respond to any questions for more info. Thanks in advance.
