2wire 1701HG Gateway Router VPN Setup

I'm attempting to set up a VPN, either as my end as the server, or my friend's end as the server. He's running a Linksys WRT54GS router, I've a dreaded 2wire 1701HG. We tried everything we could think of: disabling firewalls, running in PPTP or IP Sec, made sure the usernames and pass's were correct; we even got a ping to go one way (but not the other somehow, we think Charter is blocking it). The 2wire allows the ping to go through, but something on his end doesn't allow the ping to go the other way. The VPN won't connect going either direction. We both have LAN's on each of our routers, and both have internet connectivity. The ports forwarded include the 1723, etc, whatever we read online as VPN-specific. Is there something we're missing?

Go to http://gateway.2wire.net and click on the firewall icon. Click on firewall settings and, if prompted, enter your system password to reach the advanced settings page. select the computer that will function as the VPN server. In the left column, select PPTP server. click on Add, then done. or try changing the IP scheme to the 172.16.0.0/255.255.0.0 or 10.0.0.0/255.255.0.0 schemes by accessing gateway.2wire.net, go to home network icon, then advanced settings. but if you manually configure or disable dhcp, be sure to write down the subnet mask & IP assigned to the 2wire then click on save. if all else fails, run it on DMZPlus mode, however this solution will allow all inbound traffic to the computer. if it still doesn't work on DMZPlus mode, the VPN is either using the same IP scheme, is using IPSec 50 or 51, or will not work with the 2Wire gateway.

The router's PPTP passthrough and IPSec settings assume that you're connecting to an external VPN server on the public side of the network, but it sounds like you're hosting your VPN server inside your local network. If this is the case, you may just want to have your windows VPN box in a DMZ, or get a router that you can exert more control over. Be wary, if you're doing this at a residential location, your internet provider will probably block or "shape" this type of incoming traffic to your local network.

check first if you computer communicate with router, from router it can communicate with hub (internet provider) and check if your ip range act as router or a bridge.

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.

Vpn site to site


you need to create an IPSec tunnel between the router and windows server 2003 (run secpol.msc). From the dlink router, you need to set the IP address of the VoIP gateway as part of the LAN that is included on the VPN tunnel. Since it is the server 2003 that has a static IP, you need to initiate the connection from the Dlink router.

I have a two wire router trying to hook up to run my laptop


You need to run from the DSL modem into the ethernet port at the very top of the 1701hg. Use your other 4 ports below to send one the computer and one to your vonage. You will no longer need to "jump" though your vontage unit. Other than connecting the power cables, you are all hooked up.

2Wire 1701hg gateway- Broadband Access problem


hi! have you used this other identical 2wire modem before? if this other 2wire modem (is it the same 1701hg?) well you may need to configure the settings first. also 1000 series modems usually have 3 lights on it; power, broadband link, and local network. if these 3 lights are on, you may need to access the modem's user interface. assuming that all lights are green, on your computer directly attached to the 2wire, open up any browser, type in gateway.2wire.net. it will give you the network at a glance page. click on run system setup wizard, type in the system password. on the ppp authentication page, please check if it has your username & password (this is the one that you set up on your internet acct w/ your ISP), the next screen will establish a connection. (please tell me if you've got any error messages...)

Wireless router


I have a friend that works at 2 wire. I've bought a couple of their products. And I'm a computer geek. Unless I miss my guess it shouldn't matter what is plugged into it, be it laptop or desktop. It may be locked down to the MAC address on the NIC, but I doubt it. Anyway you'd just browse to it's embedded webpage and change the setting. The IP address is the same as the gateway address on the laptop plugged into it.

I think I bought that model for my dad but I can't remember the exact model number on it. Anyway the one I bought, and set up for my Dad, I had several different computers hooked up to it and never had a problem.
