Hi -

I had 2 WRV200 vpn routers setup and working fine between 2 offices.  Our main office took a lightning strike and amongst other issues, fried the WRV200 at that site.  I was not able to locate/purchase another WRV200, so I upgraded to the WRVS4400N gigabit router.

I have successfully configured the new WRVS4400N to connect the VPN tunnel to the WRV200.  Unfortunately, the vpn connection will not stay up more than a few days at most.  when the connection drops, I must log into the WRV200 and tell it to restart the connection.  I can't do it from the WRVS4400N side.

I think I have seen some posts regarding this issue, but I haven't see a resolution other than setup a ping request from one computer to another across the tunnel.  This seems a bit awkward and I hadn't had to do that with the older WRV200.

does anyone have a solution?  I've checked for firmware updates and it appears that I have the latest.
