Question about D-Link Wireless Cable/DSL 802.11G Router 54 Mbps [ DI-524 Wireless ] (114680)
Hey Experts, I have a rather strange issue with my Router. I am unable to make a VPN connection to work via the D-Link wireless router. However if I connect my laptop to the internet directly it works absolutely fine. I use an F5 Networks VPN client to make a connection. It says
a) Detecting proxy settings
b) Gives me an option to connect to the Gateway in my city.
c) Then says "Checking Registry"
d) Then just dies (timesout) after 2 mins
However, if I connect to the internet directly, this works absolutely fine!. Can anyone please help?
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: Nortel Contivity VPN client?
Nortel Contivity will work with the your D-Link router, however its functionality depends on the authentication type (AH will not work), NAT compatibilty mode, and disabling keep alives on the server. Contact your Network Administrator to find out how your VPN is configured. Step 1 Verify that you are using the latest version of firmware on your router. Step 2 Login to the Web Management for your router by entering its IP address (192.168.0.1) in your web browser. The default username is admin, and the password is blank. Step 3 Click the Advanced Tab to access the Virtual Server Settings. There is a list of pre-defined Virtual Server Rules towards the bottom of the page. Find the IPSec Rule. Click the pen and paper icon to edit its settings. Enable the rule, enter the IP address of the computer attempting to connect to the VPN in the Private IP field, then Apply the changes. Step 4 Create a new Virtual Server entry. Name the Virtual Server, "NortelVPN". Enter the IP address of the computer attempting to connect to the VPN in the Private IP field. For the Protocol Type, select Both. Enter 9550 for both the Public and Private Ports. Set the Schedule to always, then Apply the settings. Step 5 Access the Tools Page, then click the Misc button. Disable IPSec Pass-through, then click Apply. If the VPN Server is properly configured to work with clients behind NAT routers you should be able to connect to the VPN.

Hi, I have not tried it myself with DLink but with LinkSys, yes it will work. It may take a little configuration tinkering but should work. However a few notes: 1. You should only have 1 DHCP server (both have this feature); 2. You can not have 2 identical IP address; 3. I suggest you make the 524 as the gateway and the 704 as a slave; 4. In effect you will connect 1 of the LAN port of the 524 to the WAN input of the 704; 5. You have to copy the WAN settings of the 704 to the WAN settings of the 524; 6. Or if you want to retain the 704 as the gateway, disable the identical features in the 524. I suggest you treat the 524 as a client of the 704. Hope this gives you some idea and work out for you as it did with my LinkSys. Goodluck and kind regards.

Hi, If I understand you right, what you want to do is to make the DI-524 as a repeater, i.e. receive from the "external wireless access point" and re-broadcast to your "small home wireless LAN". Unfortunately, no. D-Link made it a point not to enable repeater mode in the DI-524 model (firmware has no support for wireless distribution service). Other than your old DWL-900AP+, one other model they have that can do this is the DWL-G710 but only in WiFi and not in the Ethernet port. On some other brands of similar feature models, the original manufacturer's firmware may be replaced with an open source firmware with more features enabled. An example is the LinkSys' WRT54G and the replacement firmwares by Sveasoft and another named DD-WRT. Hope this be of some information to you. Post back should you require additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

firstly check to see if the wireless is set for wireless access based on MAC address filtering
also check to see if both the laptop and the wifi router are communicating on the same channel
