    I am helping a friend setup a new WRV200. He has a static IP address (68.253.XXX.XXX) setup in the router. The router is setup on the range for internal access. 2 users have been created under the Linksys Quick Connect setup. Both users can connect using the Linksys Quick Client without issue. Upon connection I can ping the router at, but I can not ping his main XP box- (set as static on the box, and DHCP is set to start at 101). IPSec has set everything to pass though. The Options on the router for Tunneling is set to subnet at and Everything else is set to Any.

    What do I need to set to allow, set or change for his home computers to connect. By the way, his home network is set to 192.168.1.x (router as 1 and home pc as 100). Static routes would be fine, but obviously as he travels his local address ranges may be different- ie different hotels use different local ranges. If there is more information I can provide feel free to ask.

    Thanks so much!

    Right now you are on two different networks, if what you state is correct the XP machine should not work at all, can you please clarify this is the case and we can move on from there. Also the ipsec tunnel section of your router setup has no say so in what the quickvpn portion is doing. Ipsec passthrough is for vpn's originating from the inside out. Let me know about the IP's and im sure we can get this fixed.

    Sorry little confused... here are the IP's as they stand now...

    -Work Internet Address (programmed manually into router as its external address): 68.253.XXX.XXX (didn't want to post the real address out here for security reasons)
    -Work XP Box: (addresses set on 192.168.0.X subnet)
    -Home Router: DHCP address from RoadRunner
    -Home XP Box: (Addresses set on 192.168.1.X subnet)

    I use the Quick VPN client and it connects just fine after about a minute. I can then ping the remote (work) router without issue. I can NOT ping the Work XP box though, i get a request timed out.

    When setting up the router, I was told that the routers IP address range had to be different then 192.168.1.X due to IP address conflicts, is this not correct?

    Yes the lan's on either side of the connection need to be on different networks. It sounds like the setup is correct, i would at this time lean toward a firewall on the xp machine that is blocking the ping requests.

    other than the ping, are u able to access that PC with \\ from the 0.x network (and vice versa)?

    Unfortunately I don't have access to the 1.100 side since I am sitting at the 0.100 side. I will check on the firewall aspect as well as check the pinging from the 0.100 side this week.

    have you asked the guy to disable his windows firewall or accept ICMP packets? my guess is the problem will lay with the workstaion and not the router.
