I have a Netgear WGT624 v2 router.  I upgraded about 9 month ago from a Netgear MR814v2.  Everything was working fine with the WGT624 including VPN in to work.  Suddenly my WGT624 stopped allowing me to VPN in to work - I get an 800 error. I connect to the VPN all the time when I am traveling. If I by pass my router and go direct off the high speed cable modem (Comcast Cable)  I can connect.  I had Netgear ship me a repalcement thinking it was a hardware issue.  The replacement WGT624 behaves the same.  I reset back to factory defaults, and upgraded to the latest firmware.  I tried port forwarding still no luck.  I plugged in the old slow MR814 v2 with facotry defaults - works fine - even VPN.

Ready to toss this WGT624 in trash and go by a Linksys......

Any thoughts?
