Thank you for the reply. I am not very familar with VPN setups. How would I set it up using PPTP?
Also I downloaded Greenbow and set up a connection following this guide:
The VPN summary page in my RV042 shows that I am connected, however I am unable to connect to anything inside of that network. Any ideas on that?

Here’s a link on how to set-up the PPTP VPN in the Linksys router:
For Greenbow set up, there are discussions here in the forum that might help. Try this link:
Hope these helps.

I have a similar issue but maybe some more information.
I have three customers with RV042's installed. Two behind Netopia Modems with AT&T fixed IP address, and 1 on Verizon DSL with dynamic IP address (doesn't change very often but have to call if can't get on to network).
I have several computers that access the VPN running different operation systems (Notebook W2K, desktop XP, desktop Vista and notebook W7). Each VPN is setup with a different subnet 192.168.2.x, 192.168.3.x and 192.168.4.x so that I can access them from my office (Home office 192.168.1.x) or from each other as it is important that the subnets are not the same. All interfaces work except the Windows 7. I too have 188.8.131.52 installed on the computer with Windows 7 because I couldn't make previous versions work. With Windows 7 and QuickVPN I can make the connection as shown in the previous post but get the same Failed to pin the LAN IP of the remote VPN Router.
Because the Netopia with AT&T have 5 fixed web IP addresses and has a wireless connection I connected my wireless connection to one of the 4 extra IP addresses. When I ran QuickVPN I again got the same message. I then connected the wired network interface to the local network. This connection was assigned the address 192.168.2.26 by the DHCP server. When I ran QuickVPN again I got a connection and the standard connection box. Based on network traffic it looks like the VPN is connected via the web but the ping was done on the local network satisfying QuickVPN software.
As I am not a network person this makes me think that something in Windows 7 is blocking the ping response when going across the Web. I have looked to try to determine the difference between the firewall configuration of Vista and Windows 7 and have not been able to discover what the problem is. I assume that a default in Windows 7 is different than in Vista or something set during the install of QuickVPN is different in Windows 7 than in Vista that Cisco may of may not address in the future as the RV042 seems to obsoleted by Cisco.
I hope this adds some information to you network people that you can just say "Oh, set the public option on something or turn this on or something else simple".
I am testing Windows 7 so I don't have to have so many different OS. My industrial software appears to work perfectly with the XP mode in Windows 7 including the USB to RS-232 adapter to connect to older devices, as the USB port was not availlable in previous versions of virtual PC. Plus Windows 7 makes these programs available from the start menu in Windows 7 so you don't even have to fireup Virtual PC to run them (must run in background but makes it easer for ME!!
