Linksys WRV54G VPN connection from Dial-up client to DSL VPN server

I have a client trying to connect from a dial-up connection to the VPN server and it stops at the "Verifying network screen".  Is it possible to connect to the VPN via dial-up or do I need a DSL connection from the client?  The VPN server is Linksys WRV54G and I am running their built in Quick VPN utility

I don't know of any reason why it won't work from a dialup client... I'll try to test it out with my laptop with dialup modem and the Quick VPN client. I have a WRV54G also, and use the client successfully all the time. Just never had a need to try from a dial connection...  stay tuned....
Yes, it works from dialup....

Do you need any more assistance or information?
Can you close out this long-forgotten question?
Here's how:

Test to see if you can ping the WRV54G internal LAN address.  If you've enabled the VPN you should note the addresses internally change to a 10.X.X.1 address.  I've tried via dial up and had the same thing. It hung on verifying network HOWEVER, I was connected and could map to shared network resources via IP address.  You may just want to test using some PINGs on the network through a DOS prompt once it hangs on Verifying Network.

Linksys emailed me a Beta Firmware that supposedly fixed this issue.  It helped on different ISPs but not this particular one.
