Just bought a new wireless router (WRT54G v6) to replace my old one who just died after 4 years of loyal services (WRT54G v1) but VPN does not go through even though all the VPN passthrough options are enabled.
I'm using a VPN connection created through the Network connection wizard of Windows XP. This same connection worked fine with my previous router (WRT54G v1) but not with the new one (WRT54G v6). What can I possibly try to check or do.
I also upgraded to the latest firmware 1.00.9 to no avail.
Also, if it can help, when I connect my cable modem directly in my computer the VPN goes through. Through the router, nothing, wired and wireless connections the same.
Are you using a VPN Client software? If so, try to forward the regular VPN ports for it... 47, 50-51, 500 and 1723. On some instances the port can be defined by your network administrator, you should contact them if there are more/different firewall ports you would need to open. Then enter them into your linksys router page under Applications and Gaming. You should be able to use the software afterwards.

I'm not using any specific VPN client, just the Windows XP VPN connection created through the New Network Connection Wizard. This same connection worked fine on my former WRT54G v1 and also directly connected to cable modem, so problem resides in the router.
