Ag241 Router

[ Edited ]
I am trying to set up a vpn tunnel on my AG241 router but not having too much luck. I am not on a static ip, i sort of get the feeling that as long as i know the current external ip address i should be able to get through to my xp machine with the shares on it.
When i check the vpn log it seems to show a connection, but that is as far as it goes.
As a precaution i have turned the firewall off, and told the router to accept a connection from any ip address.
Still no luck
Any help out there.Smiley Sad

Re: Ag241 Router

Hi i'm having about the same problem,


This is due to the fact that this modem doesn't route the GRE packets ( protocol47) i could extrapelate that from my server. ( a Windows 2003 )

I also posted a message because of this.


I tried it also with another dsl modem inwich i can seperatly forward this protocol, and then everything works like a charm. ( yes VPN passthrough was enabled in the AG241 and port 1723 is forwarded to a my server with a static IP )

I can see the connection comming in also the handshake ( username password checking ) is correct, but due to the lack of GRE packets the connection is terminated.

Is there any solution to this, or should I buy another brand?

i have tow ag241 routers. and yep, ive seen similar problem.  i find when i repower the ag241 it often fails to connect to adsl a lot of times too. after repowering i have to do a firmware reboot via the web gui which sometimes helps.

and if u think thats bad...wait til ur LAN ports blow up! its a KNOWN problem EXCEPT to linksys support staff Smiley Happy seems to be a design defect. if u plug ethernet devices such as other switches etc into the ag241 the port can fail. the light on the port wont even come on!! i could never work out what was happening. thought i was just old age (3years old) til one day i repowered a ethernet hub (not switch) which was daisy chained into the ag241. promply blew up another one of the 4 ports!!! oh well, i have ONE working port left  on one unit and two on the other Smiley Happy
