    I see from this string that you all might be able to help me.

    I have just purchased the WRV54G. I am on a home cable connection going from:

    Internet >>> Modem >>>> WRV54G >>>>> switch >>>> 4 computers

    I am trying to set up this VPN, and it's NOT what I expected to say the least.

    I have turned on:
    IPSEC - Enabled
    PPTP - Enabled
    L2TP - Enabled
    Tunnel Entry: Tunnel 1(home)
    VPN Tunnel - Enabled
    VPN Gateway - Enabled

    Local Secure Group: ~ 245 (my router is
    Remote Secure Group - ANy
    Remote Secure Gateway - Any


    Key Method: Any
    PFS: Disabled
    Key: Key

    I can not get anything to work. I am getting the "Verifying Network" error that seems to be a theme here on this site.

    I'm surprised I had to download the Linksys VPN client. For work, I use the Widows VPN netwokr connection application, and I have never had problems. I'd like to keep using Windows app instead of the Linksys client, but I'll do whatever it takes to get this done.

    I'd like to connect "from the road" Hotels, internet cafe, work (i am behind a Linix firewall at work)

    I see from this site that there have been responses to similar problems, but I can't seem to find a listing exactly like my issue. Can anyone give some advice?

    What are the chances I get this thing to work?

    Try to execute the following command from the command promt. The first line will turn off firewall and the second and third will set IPSEC policy agent in the right mode for QuickVPN. Then run quickVPN and login. Please let us know if this fixes your problem.

    C:> netsh firewall set opmode mode=DISABLE
    C:> sc stop PolicyAgent
    C:> sc config PolicyAgent start= demand

    just to give my two cents worth, there's nothing you need to do from a command prompt (based on my successes). You're making the same error a few of us did when trying the vpn function for the first time. There's someone else in one of the other forums who's at the same point you are. Take a look at the thread below and see if this helps you get some bearings...


    Configuring the vpn tunnels under the "Security--->VPN" tab has no bearing or affect on quickvpn functionality. Quickvpn works in and of itself (it's a self reliant vpn application).

    Try the information out in the link and tell report your findings...

    I am having the same problem. If i plug in my computer into my cable modem directly, quickvpn works fine. however when i use any router, or go to any network that uses a router, it wont connect.

    any tips???
