Cisco vpn disconnection through sonicwall firewall

This may sounds obvious but have you forwarded the correct ports through sonicwall for your VPN?
If you have, do you have any QoS running, it could be worth checking that VPN has priority over VoIP etc.
Do you get disconnects all the time or is it only during busy periods? You may be overloading your server, perhaps it's time for more RAM.

I go to and it says that my computer ip has been detected as a proxy/VPN. How do I change this? How do I fix it?

Go to Windows Firewall (Start -> Control Panel) and see if VPN has been enabled, if so try disabling it.

I tried to install NetExtender client from SSL-VPN website to Windows XP (x64) with IE8 but getting "Failed to install NetExtender, the installation has been rolled back!" message. I already...

In Windows your security settings need to be set to accommodating this installation you can find the security settings for IE8 by going to tools then internet options set your security to low from your question it reads that you have done this already my research bring me to this option please read below.
Article Applies To:
SonicWALL SMB SSL-VPN Appliances and Software: SMB SSL-VPN 2000, SMB SSL-VPN 4000, NetExtender
Firmware/Software Version: 2.5 or higher

Problem Definition:
When installing NetExtender on any supported Windows operating system, the error "Failed to install NetExtender, the installation has been rolled back" may be observed, especially when the operating system is installed on a drive other than the default. This issue is resolved by upgrading the SSL VPN 2000 or 4000 appliance to firmware version 2.5 or higher and making another installation attempt.
Resolution or Workaround:
For each of the following possible causes of this behavior, an explanation, workaround, or solution is provided:
  • User does not have administrative privileges. With 2.5.x.x firmware and above, administrative privileges are required for initial installation only, previous versions require administrative privileges for each update.
  • Browser security settings. Add https://IP-or-DomainName to trusted sites, and set trusted sites security level to LOW.
  • Popup blocker. Disable all third party popup blockers.
  • Anti-virus or anti-spyware. Temporarily disable all third party anti-virus or anti-spyware solutions.

I have a Surfboard SBG900 router and cannot connect to VPN

The issue you have is not due to enabling WPA. It is due to enabling Firewall protection. Either turnoff firewall or use custom option to enable required ports.

Vpn error. 800

Resolutions: 1) if you have firewall, open TCP Port 1723, IP Protocol 47 (GRE). 2) make sure you can reach the VPN server by using ping. Sometimes, poor connection can cause this issue too. 3) You may need to updated firmware on a router or firewall if other OS (win9x/nt/me/w2k) works except XP. 4) The VPN server may not be able to get IP from DHCP for the VPN client. So, you may want to re-configure VPN host networking settings. For XP pro VPN host, go to the Properties of the VPN>Network, check Specify TCP/IP address and Allow calling computer to specify its own IP address, and uncheck Assign TCP/IP addresses automatically using DHCP. 5) Make sure no other secure software blocks your access, for example, if you use Norton secure software, you may need to add the remote client's IP so that the client can access. 6) If your VPN running on a Windows RRAS with NAT enabled, you may want to check the NAT settings. 7) If you can establish the VPN from the desktop at home but not from the laptop. Make sure no security software like Microsoft OneCare software that blocks the GRE.
