  1. Are you trying to do this at home or in work? Whatever the case, your network connection/provider might not allow you to connect to VPNs if you're trying to do so on wireless. Have you checked Shrew Soft's instructions to see if you have to take any special steps?
  2. Doing this from home and have been connected wirelessly on my old laptop (Win XP Pro) already. Wireless connection problems only started when I got the new laptop with Windows 7. Tech guys at work recommended Shrew Soft as Cisco don't have a VPN client for Win 7 64 bit. As I said, if I connect via ethernet it works fine but wireless bombs out when trying to negotiate 'tunnel'!.

    Thanks
  3. I have the same problem, with a wire it works fine, never had problems connecting with the 32bits version of windows 7 now with the 64 bits it doesn't work anymore with my wireless adapter
  4. Hi all, i am having the same issue over Win7 32 or 64 bits .. the problem is when try to connect via wireless (without vpn connected) never resolve DNS.

    When connect via VP it works fine but still the issue when try to connect to any wireless network...
  5. I figured out the easy fix for this. In your network adapters under Network network and sharing center. You need to disable the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter. Once you do that you will be able to connect wireless and still connect via ethernet.
  6. In my case that wasn't the whole answer (v 2.1.7), I had to set the value for "NAT Traversel" to "Force-rfc" (rightclick -> properties -> client). After disabling the miniport adapter and setting this value, wireless and ethernet is working fine.

    This worked for me. I didn't need to change the NAT Traversal settings. Thank you!

    Worked for me as well with no need to tamper with NAT Traversal. V. 2.1.7.
    Setting NAT Traversal - this was probably specific to certain VPN settings on server-side.
  10. Thanks, worked for me too. :bounce:
  11. Worked for me as well. Win7 Home Premium 64bit. Just disabled the Miniport and smooth sailing.
