I just recently purchased a Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router to set up a wireless network at home. The problem I'm having is that I also have a Cisco 501 Pix Firewall which I need to VPN into my work domain. I'd like to set up my network so that I can run a cable from my cable modem to the router, then a cable from the router to the VPN box. Then I want to connect my VPN box to my work computer. I do not want the wireless network to have to run behind the VPN box because it's way too slow.
I've been able to get one to work at a time, but never both. If I want to use the VPN box, I have to run a cable from the cable modem to the VPN box first, then from the VPN box to the router, but then I can't get the wireless network to work. If I want to use the wireless network, I have to run a cable from the cable modem to the router first, then from the router to the VPN box, but then I can't get the VPN to work.
I can't work without the VPN!
Any suggestions? Maybe I'm just missing a step in the configuration??
