Question about Linksys -Cisco Wireless-G VPN Broadband Router [ WRV54G ] (107013)

1 Answer

VPN connection issues

I switched to Time warner and could not use my VPN service to connect to my working computer since then. It always showed it's "Verifying username and password" and could not
pass it and log onto the VPN.
Any idea about the settings of the router or it's a time warner
service issue because all my log in infomation to the VPN has not been changed.

    1. What's the model number of the VPN router?

    2. Are you using the Linksys Quick VPN utility?

Check if you can enable "VPN pass-through" on your home router.
try diabling its security features (firewall) one at a time and try afterwards.
last option perhaps try upgrading to the 5.06 version of the vpn client.

Firewall ports need to be opened. Log into router and turn on DMZ to your computer. Find your IP address on your machine 192.168.X.X and put that into DMZ settings or open up appropriate ports for VPN

I have Time Warner Cable for internet and Vontage cable for my phone thru my internet. I'm trying to connect a Linksys router for my wireless laptop. I also have a Netgear switch connected to Time Warner...

If you purchased a Linksys wireless roter then you shoul not need the switch anymore-
Try going directly from your time warner modem into the Interner/WAN port on the router and then plug your desktop computer and the vontage phone system into 2 of the ports on the router. After everything is hooked up you will probably need to power cycle for it all to work correctly.
Please power cycle in this order:

Reboot modem - then Router- then Vontage phone system.

Hope this helps

Time Warner Cable won't identify Linksys WRV54G wireless router

If you can connect directly via your modem, then the line up to your house is fine. So no problem with your ISP.

Since you changed from cable to DSL, you might have to re-configure your router.
Open a web browser, type "" in the address bar and log on to the web based router configuration page. (The default values are "admin" for username and "admin" for password)
Go to "Setup", choose "Basic" and review the entries there. You want to see it configured for "PPPoE".

Some DSL-based ISPs use PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) to establish Internet connections. If you are connected to the Internet through a DSL line, check with your ISP to see if they use PPPoE.
If they do, you will have to enable PPPoE.
User Name and Password: enter the User Name and Password provided by your ISP.

Connect on Demand: Max Idle Time. You can configure the Router to cut the Internet connection after it has been inactive for a specified period of time (Max Idle Time). If your Internet connection has been terminated due to inactivity, Connect on Demand enables the router to automatically re-establish your connection as soon as you attempt to access the Internet again.
If you wish to activate Connect on Demand, click the radio button.

In the Max Idle Time field, enter the number of minutes you want to have elapsed before your Internet connection terminates.
Keep Alive Option: Redial Period. If you select this option, the router will periodically check your Internet connection. If you are disconnected, then the Router will automatically re-establish your connection. To use this option, click the radio button next to Keep Alive.
In the Redial Period field, you specify how often you want the Router to check the Internet connection. The default Redial Period is 30 seconds.
When you have finished making changes to the screen, click the Save Settings button to save the changes, or click the Cancel Changes button to undo your changes.

(This info is from the Linksys manual)
