Friends and neighbors, does the EA7300 support IPSec VPN? I have that router designated my main router with a slightly older VPN firewall cascading under it which does support IPSec VPN. Though all devices work, the older router displayed a failed ping test when I tried it with the Linksys router's address. Also, the Linksys address does not show in a URL. Thanks to anyone who knows a method of hooking these things up.

The Linksys EA7300 allows VPN tunnels using Internet Protocol Security (IPSec), Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) or Point-To-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) as passthrough.

Coleen_R, thank you for your reply, just in time for a new development. Overnight I left my browsers open; and then lost connection. I may have to go through setup again. With Linksys EA7300 as my main router, should that be directly connected into the modem? When I connected before my last post, I had Netgear FVS114 connected to the modem and the Linksys connected to it, intending to use the Netgear as an access point. We may have here a double NAT. I am in a public library now; and at home this is the way it is still connected.

Coleen _R, after going through setup again, to both restore connection and to place the main router behind the modem, I found that I cannot setup the secondary router that I planned to use as an access point, the Netgear FVS114. In fact, even with my computer directly connected to that router, I cannot pull up a setup page. Additionally, my Roku 2 will not stream since it cannot connect through this new network. On Roku 2 my available networks show padlock symbols. However, I still have an E1000 that I stopped using when I acquired the EA7300. Would that make a good access point? I am concerned that I have too many devices connected to my main router.
