Unable to connect VPN using CiscoLinksys WRT54G2 router

Unanswered Question
Jun 13th, 2010

There is some problem with this firmware on the router that blocks all VPN connection regardless of all the settings that Cisco / Linksys has recommended. Linksys used to be a very dependable router and I bought the new one after retiring an old linksys.

Lot of forums state a problem with a router. Here is exactly what happens. Hook up a computer directly to cable modem, VPN connects and works. Hook up a computer with WRT54G2 in between VPN does not work.

I am surprised why Cisco has not provided a fix for this yet?

Are you using a PPTP VPN connection?  If so, some routers require you to enable a PPTP passthrough.  Its usually on the Admin tab.
