    I've set up the latest version (prefinal 5 or whatever), and set up a PPTP VPN server. I try to connect to the VPN and it connects successfully, but I am unable to browse the web with it. It will resolve any domain name, but pinging doesn't work. Any ideas where I can look to fix this?

    Try disabling the encryption client-side and then try reconnecting. when VPNing into a network where the wrt is the server I've noticed 100% cpu usage whenever I've connected in the past w/encryption but with it disabled it's around 50%.

    That didn't work. If you or anyone else is willing to try to tackle the problem, I will pay $200 if you can get it to work. I can provide remote access, as well as VNC access if necessary.

    The cpu on wrt54g is too slow to handle vpn-connections using encryption. So there is no way to fix this problem.

    first of all, what OS do you install on the server behind this wrt? and what's the OS on the other side?

    XP on both sides. Actually at the moment the client is XP and there is no server set up on it. I am just trying to VPN in and access the internet through it. I only need one client connected at once - two at most.
