PostPosted: Wed Jun 21, 2006 8:47 pm    Post subject: WRTP54G Having VPN connection problems Reply with quote Back to top

I am having connection problems via Nortel VPN into work. It can take several dozens tries to get connected (it does eventually connect). I have a WRTP54G with firmware 1.00.62. Once connected I can stay connected for days (util I reboot the PC).

I saw an thread back in 2005 that mentioned a couple of things to try and putting the work PC in the DMZ solved my problem, however that defeats the purpose of a router/firewall. Like others mentioned if I put another router in front of the Vonage router and have the PC on it VPN works fine, but that seems to cause some problems with Vonage.

What I have done for now is to connect the Vonage router directly to the cable modem, then I took my old router (a linksys BEFSR41) and connected it to the Vonage router. Set up the old router with a static IP and entered that static IP into the DMZ of the Vonage router. And the work PC is connected to the old router and is now firewall connected.
It works fine, just kludgy. Anyone have a better solution?

Thanks

I too am having problems connecting to my work VPN while using the WRTP54G (firmware 1.00.62). IPSEC passthrough is enabled. I also found that I could connect without issue if my laptop was set as the DMZ system.

Looking into it further, I did some packet tracing using DMZ and without to see what was going on. From the trace I see:

Outgoing TCP connection
ICMP ping and reply
ISAKMP (UDP port 500) messages going back and forth
An ESP (protocol 50) packet from my computer to the VPN server

From then on, if I'm not using DMZ I see repeating ESP packets from my computer to the VPN server w/o a response (this is where the vpn software hangs up). If I am using DMZ, I see two ESP packets from the VPN server and the connection succeeds.

So from this, it appears that the WRTP54G is blocking incoming ESP packets unless you are in the DMZ. This contradicts the manual which claims ESP (protocol 50) should function w/ IPSEC passthrough enabled. Hopefully this can be resolved w/ a firmware update (I'd be pretty tweaked if not, as I've never had this much trouble using a number of different wireless routers before)

My PPTP VPN suddenly stopped working on my Linksys WRTP54G at Firmware 1.00.52 . I finally chose to reset to factory defaults, and kept everything open. Now both my MS PPTP and Cisco IPSEC VPN clients work, but my wireless access point ID is showing linksys instead of the hosname I chose for it. Consequently, the firmware has now magically updated itself to 1.00.62, so I know that rev works...at least before I secure it with a MAC filter and change the NAT'd IP to a 10.* network.

Has anyone contacted Vonage about this problem? I am running 1.00.62 as well on my WRTP54G and cannot (or rarely) VPN in unless setting my system to DMZ. All the ipsec* passthroughs are enabled as well...
