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.

    As a side note: Although you'd have to buy more equipment, hardware VPN is the way to go. It's much more secure and it's much easier to setup. Businesses that use VPN always have hardware at both ends. (Essentially you'd get another VPN router at the other end. They also make notebook based hardware VPN devices. I mention this because with software ANYONE can download the netgear client and use it. Also the software clients require a bit more setup. Either way it's cumbersome to some extent if this is your first router project. That link I gave you will have setup instructions that work well.

Applying QoS to WNDR3300


You may stop what you are doing right now. Nothing you do will work regarding QOS and your Avaya IP phone?

Is this a hardware VPN, or a VPN remote phone? (vpn client on the phone)

Depending on what system you are connected to, an IP Office or a communication manager, there might be settings to do, but none of them are qos.

QOS is inserted on the LAN, once the packets leave the LAN and hit the open internet, there is no QOS.

You might be able to change the compression algorithm the phone is using, which might help.

Cisco vpn will not work with verizon service now after we got a new modem through verizon


Verizon Home DSL service uses a special filter that prevents ALL incomming connection including web, email and VPN hosting from a home connection. Business internet does not limit this, and I don't believe FIOS blocks it. If you have verizon home, there's nothing you can do. If you're just trying to connect to a home machine, you can try something like gotomypc, or a free alternative like teamviewer.com or logmein.com.

If you don't have verizon home dsl, comment back with what service you do have, and we can try some other things.

No wireless


Hello Chantalallie

Is the laptop able to connect to the Internet wirelessly over other networks? (say at a coffee shop or Internet cafe, etc.)

(We want to pin down whether or not the issue is w/ your laptop or w/ the router.)

If the laptop is not functioning wirelessly at all now, make sure that the wireless radio button on your laptop has not been inadvertently placed in the OFF position. Where that button is located varies w/ ea. laptop. If you're not familiar w/ where it is, look closely along the sides and front of your laptop and above the keyboard (below the monitor).

Still on the assumption that your laptop's wireless radio is not working:
(A) Click on START
(B) Click on NETWORK CONNECTIONS
You should see a connection called "Wireless" or something similar.
(C) Check to see if that connection is DISABLED.
(D) If it is, right click on it and choose ENABLE

OK, now we'll await your answers before proceeding as doing so now would necessitate making assumptions regarding your equipment, operating system, etc. that may not be correct.


Thank you,
BJ

Cisco VPN Client won't connect


You'll want to enable the VPN transparency. In the router's administrative web interface, click the Security Tab, then the VPN Passthrough sub-tab. Cisco VPN's usually use IPSEC, so enable the IPSEC Pass-through and click "Save Settings". If this doesn't work enable the PPTP Pass-through as well and give that a shot.
