    Does anyone know if it is possible for me to setup a site-to-site VPN connection using two WRT54G routers?

    Through all my searching on the web, I keep seeing WRV54G... but what about the WRT? will it work?

    Anyone have any links on how to set something like this up? ANY help at all is appreciated. I don't know where to start...

    Check out the sveasoft forum. The WRT54G is the basic device needed to use alchemey or talisman.

    Truthfully, you'd be better of getting a "real" vpn endpoint router such as the Linksys WRV54G (50 PPTP/50 IPSEC VPN Tunnels), Linksys BEFVP41 (50 PPTP VPN Tunnels), Linksys WAG54G (5 PPTP VPN Tunnels) or a Linksys BEFSX41 (2 PPTP VPN Tunnels).

    I started out messing with sveasoft firmware but in the end, I realized although you "could" get a wrt to run with the flashed firmware, the unit isn't made for the additional overhead running vpns bring.

    Still, if you're not expecting to have a lot of clients, you can do it.

    I'm just looking at having 1 computer connecting to my network... thats why I was wondering if I could...

    Dont really need the 50 tunnels at all, so I was going to see if I could use what I had on site... :)

    Thanks... I'll look into the other firmware.
