This article explains how to configure WEP/WPA-PSK/Access list on NETGEAR Wireless router (also applicable to access points). Note:
You can configure WEP or WPA. But you cannot enable both at the same time.
You can configure Access list and also enable WEP or WPA for additional security.
After you enable wireless security features on the router (or access point), you must configure your wireless clients (wireless computers) with matching settings. Your wireless clients will not be able to connect unless you configure matching settings.
Its recommended you enable these wireless security settings from a computer wired to the router (or access point).
Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
Open an Internet explorer and type the router IP address which would be either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 (by default, refer to your product documentation ti determine the default IP address.) in the address bar and press Enter. The Login window will be prompting for a Username and Password. The default Username is admin and the default Password is password
Click Wireless Settings under Setup menu.
Under Security Options, Select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
Select Authentication type as Automatic and Encryption Strength as 64-bit (or 128-bit) - You must later configure your wireless computers with the same setting.
Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength) and Apply the settings. Please note down these values - You must later configure your wireless computers with the same setting.
Well the VPN connection would have to be setup on your PC at home or where ever you are... VPN will pass-through if your router allows that... Also the VPN connection would have to be accepted by the remote server or computer that you are trying to VPN into
That 3Com really doesn't have a wahy of setting up a VPN.
As per the 3Com site it:
Support of VPN termination/initiation and passthrough allows secure connection to central office and/or secure access from remote workers. So it will allow 3rd party VPN setups to pass through, but it doesn't have the ability to create one.
You might want to look into something like a Netgear Firewall http://www.netgear.com/Products/VPNandSSL/WiredVPNFirewallRouters/FVS114.aspx
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.
Hope this helps a little.
