VPN works through wired ethernet ports, but with wireless connection
VPN not working, why?. If I connect my laptop with ethernet cable to
Router, VPN works, if I use wireless connection, then not?. I reset
many times and same thing, I have cable modem on the backend?. Any
idea?. Thanks.

IIRC some of the original intel integrated wireless chipsets couldn't not
handle IPSEC and Wireless at the same time.

My AP supposedly has trouble doing VPN over WEP. Actually it initially
had trouble just doing WEP unless forced back to 2 mbps, until I got a
firmware upgrade.

To see if others with your mfr/model router have that problem, check the
hardware forum for your router brand at http://www.broadbandreports.com/
