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

Hi, Unfortunatly there is no solution with your current set up, you will need a medium grade router like a draytek 2820, that can establish the vpn from itself rather than from the computer, this way the vpn is established from the router, and when your archos connects to the router it will also have access to the vpn.

You will need to talk to the IT lead at your job to see if he has given you proper allowances to access the VPN server.
You also may want to check the errors or prompts screens that the the PC is giving this will tell you what the next step is.
Please provide more information as to you issue your issue is not complete as to what you are experiencing for your VPN connection.
2. check the VPN configuration in your PC also there may be a firewall issue here that is not allowing you to connect.

Printing with Dlink DI-624S and VPN connection


I am guessing this VPN is something work related and not a VPN you setup yourself?? If that is the case your company's VPN access will not allow you to pass from there network back to yours which is why you are unable to print to your local home printer when connected to VPN. You might could run it by your IT staff and see if they will allow connection and help you set it up. If not then simply email the docs to yourself and then print them out after you are finished using VPN connection.

Hope this Helps

Cannot connect to SonicWall VPN


My guess is that dhcp is using the same private network scheme. Try changing your home network scheme to something different than your office.
For example:
Office = 192.168.1.x
home = 192.168.2.x

DI 524 Router Not able to connect to office VPN on Wireless


I have the same model router at home, just checked the settings, you should be able to pass through the router with a normal vpn connection.

If you use a special VPN client, like a CheckPoint Secure VPN client, the router might block it. Also you might want to ask your office's sys admin if you are not blocked by the firewall or something similar. Your office's sys admin will prolly solve your problem since he knows your work network's configuration and setup and how to connect to it.
