Uncheck the "disable SPI firewall" option in the wireless settings for the router.

SOURCE: Connecting VPN using Netgear 624

This is no small undertaking. You will first have to decide if you are going to use software or hardware vpn. Software vpn is free and only requires that you install it (the client) on whatever remote system you are using to connect to the 624. I can say that you want to have your internet connection point (DSL modem or Cable modem) set to "bridge" mode. This will pass through all traffic to the netgear directly. Some (like a speedstream 5200 DSL modem) allow this or they have a DMZ feature which will accomplish the same. Either way you want to ensure ALL ports and all traffic are getting to the netgear. Once that is done you simple create a string at both ends that match for your security phrase and an authentication that matches and you should be good. It's really a lot more than what could be provided here. (Several lengthy documents worth) but I can provide you with a useful link that will give you an a-z about VPN and has specific walkthroughs for Netgear users only. http://www.vpncasestudy.com/index.html Hope this helps a little.

It seems that your Internet download is fine but the issue is with the uploading. Try to switch of the router for few min. Remove all the cables out and press the Power button for 10 to 15 sec and replug the cables
Check the internet connection.

Wireless speed


The answer to this is yes and no.

Wireless speeds are not up to gigabit on any router that I know of. You may be able to have a wired Gigabit connection on a wireless router, but not wireless. But this would not speed up your Internet browsing (wireless or not).

A new router would probably improve your Internet browsing speed, but perhaps not for the reason you may think.

1, Your line speed has probably increased since you purchased your current router and a new router would probably deal with it better.
2, You may be able to put a new wireless card in your PC that would allow you to use G or some of the other faster wireless connection methods.

Ultimately your Internet browsing speed is governed by the line speed, the contention in your area, the general speed of the Internet. Changing your router will just help make your internal network traffic more efficient.

Here is a Good Guide from Microsoft that I would follow BEFORE spending any money.

http://tech.msn.com/howto/articlepcw.aspx?cp-documentid=6555722

Basically what it says is 1, ensure you have a clean connection to the Internet, 2, update all your firmware so that every thing is as good as it can be.

Read the article, do what it says and then consider if you need to upgrade the router. At the end of the day your Internet speed will never be better than the speed that you have paid for. If you pay for 2Mb and http://www.speedtest.net says you are getting 1.9Mb then you are doing well and the best you can improve things is by .1Mb. Maybe you need to get a faster connection.

If you pay for 2Mb and you are only getting 1Mb (and you have done all the recomendations) Maybe you need a new router.

Hope this helps

It's not the same. Your Netgear router version is V1. I did not find any downloadable upgrades either - I have the same router. My connection problem turned out to be between my DSL modem (AT&T), router and PC. What I needed to do was, under "Basic Settings," click no where it asks if your service requires login, then at the bottom of the tab, click the option to acquire the MAC address directly from the wired (desktop) computer. ("this computer" on the tab) Once I had done that, the router enable the modem correctly and I could use the desktop and the wireless access for my laptop. Frustrating, because if you have AT&T as your service provider, Netgear's instructions tell you to do the exact opposite.

Can't connect


First if your computer has an ethernet port attempt to connect through the router to the internet with a wire. If that works the next question is did you buy this device new or used? If used we can work to assure we know the configuration of the device. Second what is the manufacturer and model of your computer? Third, if the wireless adapter is not built into the computer what do you know about the make and model of the wireless adapter? Armed with the above information we should be able to resolve the issue.

Thanks
