    Ok, here I am in Japan AGAIN. While I was home, Iwas about to drop kick the WRV54G in to the middle of next week. Before I had a chance to exchange it, I was sent back here again. I was given a BEFVP41 to use while here. After a lot of research, I was finally able to establish a VPN connection between the BEFVP41 and my WRV54G routers. I did not use QuickVPN, because it is a piece of garbage. I set up both routers, and the connection has been stable for over a week! Not only that, but my WRV54G router hasn't crashed once since I have the VPN connection has been established. Normally it would crash at least once a day. So I am a happy person now.

    I have a question about a setting on the VPN setup on my WRV54G router. In the setup menu, it shows a VPN Gateway Enable Disable option. What is that setting for? My hope it is to allow me to use the router as a gateway to my Cox Cable internet. Can someone tell me how to route my internet surfing through my Cox Cable internet via the VPN connection?

    I believe it's for forcing all traffic down the tunnel instead of just packets for the remote LAN.

    Quick VPN is Working!

    Well Well Well, I finally got QuickVPN to work! All of the problems I have been having with it have been traced directly to WindowsXP Firewall. If I turned off Windows Firewall on my laptop, and QuickVPN quickly connected to my home router. I almost fell over from shock when I saw the icon turn gree. I could never get QuickVPN to work with Windows Firewall on, so I purchased a copy of Norton Firewall, and installed it. I turned off Windows firewall. When I tried QuickVPN using only Norton, Norton Firewall quickly configured itself and QuickVPN successfully connected to my WRV54G router back home. How wonderful! For those of you experiencing problems with QuickVPN, I suggest turning off Windows Firewall to see it that helps.
