Getting frustrated with routers and their VPN compatibility… Over the years I’ve used Linksys, Dlink, and belkin routers. So far the only one that seems to work OK with VPNs is Dlink… Linksys has VPN passthrough, but it doesn’t work properly, known bug, its all over the internet and Linksys won’t fix it. I thought this time I’d try a Belkin 150N Enhanced wireless router. Using it either wired or wireless is of no use. The vpn connects, sure, but it either disconnects every three minutes or it just stops responding and forces XP to reconnect. Brutal when you’re trying to WORK with it… Why can’t they make a product that works, or at least fix the known bugs with these things. Again for belkin, VPN issues are all over the internet 🙁
So, I’ve attempted to contact support at Belkin as a last ditch effort. If they can’t help, I’m taking it back. Maybe I should shell out $200 and get an Airport from Apple. Surely they’ve put effort into QA on their products..
Here I go, to google all the routers and see what REAL USERS suggest…
