I am using Verizon FiOS PPPoE on the RV180w and the PPTP does not work.

Has anyone found a solution to this.

I am using an RV180w, with firmware 1.0.3.10.

Up until recently I was able to create a VPN connection from my internal windows 7 dsktops, through the RV10w to remote Windows servers on the Internet.  In the past week it suddenly stopped working.  I have changed NOTHING but the symptoms seem identical to what is described here.

I am using Verizon FiOS PPPoE on the RV180w and the PPTP does not work.

If I use the Verizon ActionTec router, the VPN works fine.

I have factory reset the RV180w multiple times.

Any help woul be greatly appreciated!!

Sounds like something changed on verizon's side if everything was working before.  Do you have vpn passthrough enabled on the rv180?  I'm assuming you're using the built-in windows pptp vpn client.

I had major issues using VPN passthrough with PPTP on the RV180W through a PPPoE internet connection. In the end I gave up - I think there are some PPTP servers that the RV180 just has trouble with.  I had no problems with 3 other routers straight out the box. Unfortunately I lost access to the VPN server before Cisco could fix.

See thread:

Its interesting that it used to work and now doesn't - maybe Verizon or the VPN server have had configuration changes?  Or maybe your antivirus has created a different profile for the different router - would be worth temporarily disabling any firewal/antivirus?

It would be good to try a different non-Verizon router if you can get your hands on one to see if Verizon network changes now require special features/settings on the router.
