I work at a small company and we need to install a reliable VPN for as little money as possible (and still be reliable, of course!) We currently have a Linksys 4-port hub/router/VPN whose reliability has been dubious at best (some people could connect, others couldn't, lines would frequently drop, etc.) We were using QuickVPN as the remote client.

The performance described above occurred while we had a T1, but we've moved and are now behind a Netopia 3300 series DSL router in bridge mode. Now we cannot establish a VPN link at all.


The Linksys is the DHCP host for the internal systems (10.x.x.x network.) We can't use the netopia as the DHCP host because its ports need to remain on the public net for a system that has a public IP.

The remote clients all have dynamically assigned IPs through their ISPs (static is not an option.)

Can anyone suggest a replacement for the Linksys that will give us a good VPN solution for remote workers? We don't need any office-to-office connections so it's a pretty simple configuration.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

The linksys should be fine. I would check your configuration on the linksys for the possible problems.
