    I really need some help. After countless hours of tinkering, reading, and chating with Links Support I'm about to give up connecting a Vista Machine using QuickVPN.

    Here is my setup:
    1. Laptop running Vista Business - Loaded (fresh install) QuickVPN 1.2.6
    Running OneCare with Firewall off (tried with firewall on and no luck either).

    2. WRV200 - firmware - no special modification other than adding VPN Clients.

    Problem: The QuickVPN hangs on Verifying Network.

    The setup works like a charm on Windows XP. What do I need to do to make it work on Vista??? :eek:

    Your help is much appreciated.

    Join the club. Supposedly the beta 1.0.37 and the newer VPN software 1.2.8 were supposed to fix the issue, but I'm still having no luck.

    I actually have it working with my desktop with QuickVPN 1.2.8 and the beta firmware in the router on Vista! However, it will not work on the laptop with the same set up and almost identical software. There has to be something small making it hang, just a matter of time to figure it out. I am going to dig into the system that connects and compare it tonight, if i find something I will post it.

    Yup...I'm running it on my laptop which when XP was installed worked just fine and dandy. The laptop I have is an Inspiron 6000 with an Intel wireless card (not the crappy Dell Broadcom card). I'm using the Windows wireless software not the Intel software.

    I think there is problem with Wireless LAN adapters on Vista ... probably QuickVPN cannot detect WLAN adapters, I have posted some more info in other thread
    But I got no reply so far :(

    Can you check whether you can connect via Ethernet (wired) LAN?

    could you try assigning a Static IP address on your Wireless PC.

    I can for sure confirm the wireless will NOT work with the VPN software and the wired connection does. I am using a static IP for mine. With that said, it appears this is still an issue with Vista, but with a twist now as it only does wired connections. Weird... Something else to report back to the Linksys tech support on this issue.

    Anything new on this that someone could provide answers to? Does anyone know if Linksys/Cisco is looking into this issue? This is getting very frustrating that this seems to go unanswered. Is Linksys ignoring us so we are forced to buy the $800+ model of the Cisco equivalent? :)

    If you're interested in the cisco version, look for the Cisco 871w for about $760 (from NewEgg).
