    I have a wrt54gs with a DSL modem. I have need to connect to my corporate office via VPN. When I connect via the VPN *all* my IP traffic goes through the VPN and my office router which is dragging my download transfer speed way down. My corporate office is on a DSL line with a max 384Kb upload, so all of my download traffic is limited to this bandwidth constraint. I have wrt 0.3 beta frimware and need to figure out a way to get only traffic for 1 ip address to go out over the VPN and the rest in and out directly through my ISP. Any thoughts?

    There should be an option in your VPN client software to control whether internt traffic is routed through the VPN connection or sent directly to the net. Look in your VPN client software for default gateway & internet traffic options.

    Good luck.

    I'm using the WIn XP Pro VPN client, and I don't see any options to route specific traffic. What would seem to make sense is the ability to route IP traffic for a specific IP address or range of addresses to the VPN tunnel and let all the rest go through the VPN. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Try using SSH Sentinel, it can definitely do this ;)

    Open up your vpn client and click on the properties; next click on the networking tab; then highlight "tcp/ip" anc click on properties; click on advanced. You should see a block with a check mark in it saying to "use default gateway on remote network." If you uncheck this, you should be good.

    I finally got off my azz and configured a microsoft vpn server (I'm too lazy to do multi-homing so I'm forwarding ports 1723 through my router) and happened to read about this problem in a few posts.
