How can I set up VPN connection using an LAN instead of dial up on WINXP2

I want to set up a VPN connection on windows xp client . I need to connect to the internet first using my LAN, but all I get is my old broadband dial up set up on the drop down list, which IS now disconnected. How can I get the system to show my LAN connection on this list.
Please help

See if the following detailed instructions help. Note, at lease one section will you to ignore the on screen display and skip to next set up screen.

Thanks for this, I have followed the instructions and also configured the router with  pptp and ipsec . The status shows no clients connected. Any more ideas?

No need to configure IPSec on the router. You are using a PPTP VPN. You need to forward PPTP, port 1723, traffic to the XP VPN server , and also check "enable PPTP pass-through" For details regarding configuring the port 1723 forwarding see:

What make and model is your modem and router, perhaps I can be more specific.

I can never find a whole lot of information on those units but...
Have a look at the following regarding the port forwarding for your unit with port 1723.

As for GRE or PPTP pass through if still not working try lowering the security level under security/firewall to medium or low. It shows that in high, PPTP is blocked. See if that makes a difference.

I did all that and it still does not work.

Sorry, no other suggestions. In doing some reading it seems there are a lot of people having problems creating a VPN through Voyager 200 series units. Might be worth a call to them.
