VPN client for a Zyxel P-334W

I would like to access my network from the road. The P-334W has done a good job so far but it comes up short in the telecommuter department. Does anybody know of a VPN client that will work with this router. I have tried Cisco, Sonic, and XP's built in client with no success.
If anyone cares, the only "home" vpn router that has a vpn client I have found, is Netgear. The next one up in price is a PIX 501.

An excellent product for you.
BEFSX41 - The Linksys Instant Broadband EtherFast Cable/DSL Firewall Router with 4-Port Switch/VPN Endpoint is the perfect solution for connecting a small group of PCs to a high-speed broadband Internet connection or a 10/100 Ethernet backbone. The Router can be configured to limit internal users’ Internet access based on URLs and/or time periods—URL filtering and time filtering. For enhanced protection against intruders from the Internet, the Router features an advanced Stateful Packet Inspection firewall.

Use the hardware to create IPSec VPN tunnels, so you can securely connect to the corporate server from your home office—or any location when you’re on the road. The Router provides a dedicated port for DMZ hosting and acts as the only externally recognized Internet gateway on your local area network (LAN). With the performance and security features of the  hardware, your network will take advantage of the Internet while keeping its data secure.

This router is compatible with All window Operating systems. Windows 95, 98, 2000, XP, NT, and Me.
Affordable, easy to configure and generally a good product (at approx. USD 60). Never looked back...;-)

Oppsss...ignore wy earlier comment. BEFSX41, VPN endpoint only...cannot use for remote access via VPN to the home network. Supports site to site only. Same like your Zyxel P-334W.

After much checking...it's going nowhere. There not much you can do with your P-334W via using a VPN client approach.
If you have a static IP address, you may consider running a webserver and access you file via this method...;-)

I've answered my own question. The 334 can only act as a client. So, even though you might read that it can be a telecommuters solution for secure network access, thats only there marketing department talking.
