Question about Belkin Wireless Cable/DSL Gateway Router

1 Answer

I can't connect through the VPN and Internet at the same time

I have a Belkin Router N for Cable and it works fine on both laptops to connect to internet, but on 1 laptop I have a VPN connection to my work server. I have to de-activate the security policy on this before I can connect to the internet and then re-activate it to connect to work which means I can no longer get on the internet at the same time.
Before I got the router I could do both no problem.
The other laptop and other wireless items can still connect to the internet at all times.
Help !

Firewall ports need to be opened. Log into router and turn on DMZ to your computer. Find your IP address on your machine 192.168.X.X and put that into DMZ settings or open up appropriate ports for VPN

Trying to set up a vpn server on windows XP using

Did you already forward port 1723? I guess you have done that. To isolate it, try to bypass the router and setup or establish the VPN session there. If it doesn't work, maybe your ISP doesn't allow port 1723 or it's just the modem.

Belkin F5D9230-4 won't allow a connection to M Exchange server

Login to your Belkin router and check to see if there is a firmware update available for your specific model. If so, download and install it as this may resolve the problem without doing anything else. (Be sure to save your configuration first)

The specifications for a F5D9230 state that it supports VPN passthrough so you shouldn't need to configure anything in the router itself. It may be necessary to open a few incoming ports but only as a last resort.

Would you also reply to this post and specify...
  1. What OS are you running on your pc?
  2. What VPN client are you using on your pc?
  3. Ask the administrator of the Exchange server if they're using PPTP or L2TP for VPN connections.
Another option would be to use OWA (Outlook Web Access) to access your email if it has been installed on the Exchange server.

Look at the number of users you have enabled in the router. If you only have 3 and you are using 4 computers, you could be getting the kind of behavior you are describing based on how many computers you have connected at the time.
