    Hi I hope someone can help me I’m not that familiar with this router wag54g
    When I vpn connect to a customer it connects fine and can then remote desktop but
    When we connect again to the same customer “same external ip†from another pc
    It wont allow a second connection on our old router we could connect 2 or 3 computers at the same time, anyone got an idea? I’m sure it was how we set it up

    This WAG54G (like most linksys routers) only allows "one" outgoing vpn connection at a time, so you've done nothing wrong. As a solution, I would suggest you configure the DHCP server on the WAG54G to distribute "one" ip address. Then, run a "straight thru" CAT5 cable from one of its LAN ports to the WAN port of your old router if you still have it.

    Your old router (if set for DHCP) will pull an ip address from the WAG54G that will put its WAN port on the same ip subnet as your WAG54G, thus allowing you access to the internet. From here, configure a LAN ip scheme on your old router that is "different" from your WAG54G's ip scheme so as not to have conflict.

    This configuration will allow you to still use the WAG54G as your gateway router while allowing you to have a separate subnet that should allow you to connect more than one vpn client, if your router is capable of allowing multiple vpn connections from one router. Hell, if you wanted to throw on a few more devices/computers, or create an internal test LAN, you can do that now that you have an extra subnet at your disposal.
