This is an issue thats bugged me for a couple years. I have a Netgear FWG114P Router here at home, and I never got it working with my company VPN. I could always connect to the VPN, and then after about two minutes, I'd get dropped. The tech guy at work and I tried everything.
We had the same issues with my wife's company VPN.
The only suggestion that worked was to pack up the Netgear Router and then buy a Linksys one. The Linksys router has worked just fine out of the box and both our VPN connections work great.
Now I'd like to extend my wireless network to a distant corner of our house, so I'd like to bring the Netgear out of retirement.
Anyway, anyone else have issues with VPNs and Netgear Routers? Any possible solutions I could try?
