    Hello everyone,

    I have 2 WVR54G and I'm trying to setup a VPN tunnel between the 2. QuickVPN works but I have linux machines too and I didn't find any QuickVPN version for linux.

    So here is my problem:

    I setup both sites with all the right configs (I know it works because if I set them side by side on the same network with 2 different IPs, I can create the tunnel). Then when I click on Connect. Both machines get stuck at Resolving hostname and can't get pass that point.

    Even more, I loose all ability to go over the internet, the only way to bring the WRV54G back is to Resotre the factory settings.

    Does any one have an idea of what is wrong?

    Thanks,
    Alex

    PS: My Firmware is 2.37.1

    Finally found the answer...

    Hello everyone,

    After investigation much more I discovered that this setting works:

    I have 2 different ISPs that are not related in anyway other than provinding Internet Access ;o)

    Both router have Static addresses and firmware 2.37.1

    Router1:

    Hostname: vpn1
    Domain: linksys
    MTU: Auto

    LocalIP: 10.1.1.1
    Subnet: 255.255.255.0

    VPN:

    Passthrough:
    Ipsect: enable
    PPTP: enable
    L2PT: enable

    VPN Tunnel: Enable
    VPN Gateway: Disable

    Local Secure Group 10.1.1.1
    Mask: 255.255.255.0

    Remote secore groupe 192.168.1.1
    Mask: 255.255.255.0

    Remote secure gateway: 24.x.x.x

    Encryption: DES
    Authentication MD5

    Same config for router 2 but inverted:

    Hostname: vpn2
    Domain: linksys
    MTU: Auto

    LocalIP: 192.168.1.1
    Subnet: 255.255.255.0

    VPN:

    Passthrough:
    Ipsect: enable
    PPTP: enable
    L2PT: enable

    VPN Tunnel: Enable
    VPN Gateway: Disable

    Local Secure Group 192.168.1.1
    Mask: 255.255.255.0

    Remote secore groupe 10.1.1.1
    Mask: 255.255.255.0

    Remote secure gateway: 205.x.x.x

    Encryption: DES
    Authentication MD5


    It is really tricky but works make sure you don't put Tunnel and Gateway on at the same time...
    Thanks,
    Alex
