Question about Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Router
I have been using this for quite some time without any problems and all of sudden I cannot get any internet connection. My internet server Cox says it is my router. When I disconnect my router entirely and hooked up internet cable directly from my desktop CPU to my modem it works fine. The reason I was using a router was to wire my internet cable via the router for my laptop at the same time being connected with my desktop.

If that is the case you may forward ports on the router for VPN connection, try to open 47, 500 and 1723 all TCP and UDP protocol.
Here's what you need to do, check the IP address of the computer where you have the VPN software,
click start> run> type cmd> hit okay
on the black screen put in ipconfig and check the IP address there,
> when you get the IP address then we can enable port forwarding on the router
> open IE on the working computer on the address bar, type 192.168.1.1
> nothing for username and password is admin in lower case
> then click on the applications and gaming tab on the router,
> and from there, example of how to field that in is like this,
> for aaplication name - VPN1
> for port it is 47 to 47
> for protocol it is BOTH
> for IP address ex. 192.168.1.XX - 192.168.1.100
> then check enable, do the same thing for the rest of the port.
> save the settings and try it again after.
> if it is still nothing, you may connect the computer that has the VPN connection directly to the modem and check if you will be able to connect via VPN
i'll wait for your response, thank you and have a nice day!
