    I am able to use dial-up GPRS modem from my notebook to connect to my home router RV042. But the notebook IP address (using command line ipconfig) does not make any difference before and after the QuickVPN connection. That IP address seems to be provided by the GPRS ISP service.

    Shouldn't QuickVPN change my notebook IP address so that I can connect to my home network, which uses 192.168.1.x, etc?

    if your notebook IP changed to 192.168.1.x then you would not be connected to your GPRS connection would you? QuickVPN does not assign a secondary IP visually. it should however give you access to the LAN Subnet that the IP of the RV042 uses. have you tried pinging/mapping to a shared folder on a drive of a PC behind the RV042? note Netbios most likely will not work you should try using IP addresses.

    Toxic, Thanks a lot. I didn't know it worked this way. Even if my ip is still provided by GPRS service, I can still ping my home local network. Now the only problem is I have to type full IP address ( in order to VNC into my home computer. I cannot type computer name, probably because Netbios not work, but this is only minor.
