I've searched, and browsed, and banged my head on my desk, until I pass out from the lack of blood. Soooo... I'm hoping I can get some help here? (Because Linksys is CLUELESS!!) The problem I am having is connecting. Of course! I'm getting the "green" connection on the taskbar. However... Its getting stuck at "Verifying Network..." and then after a few minutes, I get the "remote gateway is not responding" error. However... When I do an ipconfig/all; I can see that my "DNS Suffix Search List" has changed, as well as my "IP Address", "Subnet Mask", "Default Gateway" and my "DNS Servers". However, I cannot ping the new Default Gateway, and I still have my work network access. I know that the router is fine, because I CAN remotely manage it. I've got the QuickVPN software in the exceptions list for the windows firewall. And there are no network firewalls, and/or ACL port blocking. I'd "like" to use the LinksysQuick VPN if possible. But... There is stipulations. The Cisco VPN software HAS to be loaded on my laptop, so I can get into work from home. But... I'd like to get to home from work. =] If another VPN software would work better, and let me connect, I'd really have no reason NOT to use it... =] Aiight... Nitty gritty... Here is my configuration of my router. WRV54G: --firmware 2.39.2 Setup: Basic Setup --MTU: auto --DHCP: Enabled (only 155 addresses available however) Setup: DDNS --DynDNS.org setup Setup: Advanced Routing --Operating Mode: Gateway --RIP: Disabled Security: Firewall --FW Protection: enabled --Filter Proxy: disabled --Filter Cookies: disabled --Filter Java Applets: disabled --Filter ActiveX: disabled --Filter Multicast: enabled --Block Anonymous Internet Requests: disabled (web site/ftp hosting) Security: VPN --IPSec Passthrough: enabled --PPTP Passthrough: enabled --L2TP Passthrough: disabled --VPN Tunnel: enabled --Tunnel Name: home LocalSecure Group: Subnet --IP Address: 0.0.0.0 --Mask: 255.255.255.255 (should that be changed to 24-bit?) --Remote Secure Group: any --Remote Secure Gateway: Any --Encryption: 3DES --Authentication: MD5 --Key Exchange Method: Auto(IKE) --PFS: Enabled --Key Lifetime: 3600 Applications & Gaming: Port Range Forwarding --ports forwarded: 21, 3389, 16370 - 16380, 2001 Administration: management --Remote Management: enabled --Port: Other (random port I choose) --SNMP: disabled --UPNP: disabled Anything else needed info wise, I'll be HAPPY to supply it (for the most part) to get this to work... TIA!!!!!
