I have an hx2750 and can connect to my home network with no problems.
At work, we have a wireless network which we use a CISCO VPN client to access when using a laptop. The SSID shows up on my IPAQ and in WiFi settings I am told that I am "connected". However, I cannot get any internet explorer pages to show when I try and access the internet. I guess that I need to set up a VPN connection some how?
Secondly - if a network shows up as connected, should I be able to simply go to Internet Explorer and browse or do I need to set up other things? I am thinking about wireless hot spots and the like here.
It is difficult to set these things up when you have nobody else to discuss with in the office!
Can anyone point me to a dummys guide to Wifi setup?

Re: sort out my VPN issue
On my 4350, if I go Settings -- Connections -- Tasks, there's a task "Set up a new VPN connection," which will walk me through network IDs and authentication. I worry that that isn't there in WM2003SE, but have a look.
As to your second question, one serious flaw to the current communications software is that there's no way to save multiple settings sets. So when you're home or go to a public hotspot you'll likely have to empty out all your office settings, then re-input them when you're back in the office.

are you running the Cisco VPN client from home, where this Belkin is your gateway and connecting to say your work? If so, have a look in the settings of the Belkin to see if you can enable VPN Pass-through.
Try disabling some of the firewall functions on the belkin to isolate the issue and turn the rest back on.
If for some reason this model doesn't work even after the above, try changing the VPN client's connection settings,there are only two to choose from... (click modify on your connection entry, go to the Transport tab > then choose from: IPSec over TCP and IPSec over UDP (port 10000)
there is a ver 5.06 of the client out by now, it is even win7 compatible, perhaps try upgrading to that version.
yes, there have been issues reported with early 5.0x and he was correct to test an older stable version. The VPN tunnels work the same way with either version, therefore I would rule out your modem to be an issue.
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.
