Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router
I have new Netgear WGT624v3 wireless router, This router work good with internet with goo speed and coverage, but the biggest problem I face is I'm not able to connect to my office using VPN. I read in blogs that the configuring this router to VPN is bit tough, but this still can be done. Can anyone please help me in getting my router configured! This is first time I'm configuring a router and has now idea how to get this done. Thanks and appreciation for any help!
Uncheck the "disable SPI firewall" option in the wireless settings for the router.

SOURCE: Connecting VPN using Netgear 624
This is no small undertaking. You will first have to decide if you are going to use software or hardware vpn. Software vpn is free and only requires that you install it (the client) on whatever remote system you are using to connect to the 624. I can say that you want to have your internet connection point (DSL modem or Cable modem) set to "bridge" mode. This will pass through all traffic to the netgear directly. Some (like a speedstream 5200 DSL modem) allow this or they have a DMZ feature which will accomplish the same. Either way you want to ensure ALL ports and all traffic are getting to the netgear. Once that is done you simple create a string at both ends that match for your security phrase and an authentication that matches and you should be good. It's really a lot more than what could be provided here. (Several lengthy documents worth) but I can provide you with a useful link that will give you an a-z about VPN and has specific walkthroughs for Netgear users only. http://www.vpncasestudy.com/index.html Hope this helps a little.
