    Hi, Group,

    I need to set the Default Gateway on a VPN endpoint router to an address on the LAN side of the router.

    1) Does anyone know if this is possible using any model of LinkSys VPN endpoint router?

    2) Does anyone know if this is possible using any other brand of VPN endpoint router?


    BEFSX41's: VPN across a wireless intranet - then to internet

    Linking 2 BEFVP41 v2

    Would appreciate any comments/suggestions/help.

    I managed to find a solution, but I'm not sure it'll work for you. It solved my needs anyway.

    I have an Alcatel SpeedTouch Pro modem with 4 lan connections, and that is how I finally made it all work together. Linksys tells me that the BEFVP41 only works if it has an internet connection (which is rubbish, but anyway).

    What I did was to connect both BEFVP41 WAN ports to my Alcatel modem. I then connected the LAN ports to my different LAN subnets. That's it... it all works just great.

    Here's the setup:


    If I remember correctly, you wanted your wireless clients to connect via the VPN... well this would work, but you'd need to make your wireless clients come in on the WAN side. The VPN tunnel will then make them look like they are coming in on the LAN side. Additionally, this would seperate your local traffic from you internet traffic.

    Hope this helps.
