    I setup a wrv54g at the main location of a DR. office and then used the Linksys QuickVPN connect to it from the remote office. When I connect using the QuickVPN from home it seems fast enough but I am only looking at the configuration page of the wrv54g. When the remote office connects thier connection is really slow. After they connect via the quick vpn the are using client software to run application on the server in the main office. Would a point to point be better solution? Should I get another wrv54g? When I first coneect useing quickvpn yesterday I download some large files to run the setup of the application they are using. Is there a transmission limit of some kind?

    What's the speed of their internet connection? Depending on the that, plus the size of the applications their using to include information they may be passing, the combination of the three may be chewing their bandwith.

    According to speed test they are around 440kbps upload and download. The processor consumption is at 1% but the screen freezes on open programs but you can open new prograns like IE and be fine as I am writing this post. I have another office that is using site to site using the same programs (ISDN Connection) and they are not experiencing the same performance issues. I tried to lower the MTU size it was at 1400 and I reduced it to 1390 because another post on this site said to go in increments of 10 and Linksys suport said to try increments of 50 and go as low as 1100. Will changing the MTU help?

    I notice this too, but I've seen a small amount of lag on any vpn connection I've made. As usual, this is to be expected when running vpn. Once everthing synchronizes, operations smooth out. Keep in min that your isp connection (bandwith) plays a part in this also. Performance may not be "that" noticeable between 1mb down/288kb up and 2mb down/288kb up as opposed to 4mb down/288kbps up...

    Still, adjusting MTU may help.
