    I have 3 WRV54G routers at different satellite offices with the hopes of creating a VPN tunnel with a RT042 at the main office. 2 out of 3 connect solidly and are stable. The 3rd is problematic.

    I've check for variations in setup and have found none. However I did notice something weird on the problem child: it's router table looks funny.


    Shouldn't the second entry's "Destination Lan IP" be ?? I'm sure that the gateway entry is correct as that is the IP address I used to remotely connect to the router.

    I've done a soft-reset on the router remotely but the entry remains. I guess next step will be to have someone do a hard reset the router. I'd like to have the configuration saved but I'm concerned that this bogus entry will be saved with it -- so it's looks like I've got to carefully re-enter all the configuration data again.... oh well..

    Your thoughts are appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    The route itself is correct, because of the subnet mask it is saying anything you see headed for 68.104.236-239.x send it to the next hope Now how it got there is another story. I would guess you have a routing protocol turned on or that is a static route that has been input. As for you vpn woes, I believe you are talking about an RV042 which should handle the 3 tunnels with no worries. You already know that the 042 works as two other tunnels are connected but what about the 3rd wrv, has it ever worked as a vpn endpoint in the past? What does its log say? If you go wrv to wrv will it work that way?

    Hooray! I've established a tunnel between the 3rd satellite office's WRV54G and the RV042 in the main office. I also established a tunnel between two satellite offices (WRV54G to WRV54G). I believe I had a typo on the WAN IP. Let's see how long this baby stays up.

    I wish there was some way I could keep the tunnel up even when the ISP's DHCP lease expires. It seems this particular office sees their WAN IP change frequently. I have keep alive enabled on the tunnel configuration but it doesn't seem to be doing the trick.

    More than Stupid - completely NOVICE

    Hi All - The only way I can see to begin talking to you is through replying to someone else. Can someone please tell me how to start my own post? I cannot seem to be able to set up a successful encryption on my router. It says I have but I can never log on to it. I've re-configured the router about 10 times now and am pretty grumpy. Anyone have any solid information in terms of settings? I have a comcast broadband modem. Please help if you can... Thanks,

    Please Help

    I just purchased linksys SRX400 router and connected it on upstairs desktop for use with downstairs beautiful. Now I have a work laptop to connect with router and having strange problems. At first it hooks up great and after about 1/2 hour it freezes up and not only stops working with laptop but desktop located next to laptop disconnects from wireless router also. Work says router is defective but when I am just on desktop, all is fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated, before I have to return the router. Thanks Much
