Dlink DGL-4300 has connection issue with Windows 2003 RRAS/VPN.

Dlink DGL-4300 has connection issue with Windows 2003 RRAS/VPN.

1. Using Windows 2003 RRAS, allowing all PPTP connections.
2. Using AD in a Domain
3. Windows XP Pro client, already joined domain, uses Xp VPN Client
4. Connection works fine, no issues.
5. Upon disconnect, you cannot reconnect for 8-10 minutes.
6. Resetting the router before the above time (say immediately after a VPN disconnect) will allow you to reconnect instantly.
7. Ports are all setup correctly according to DLink Website.

This bug is reproduceable in two environments, both Windows 2003, XP Pro, DGL-4300, separate domains.

Have you tried updating the firmware:

Not certain that a "Wireless Gaming Router" is the ideal router for a VPN/Server environment, but no reason it shouldn't work.

Yes I did try the latest firmware 1.7, still the same problem. I agree, not an ideal unit for VPN but why everything else works makes this problem annoying at best.

Any chance you use any "trigger port range/protocols" that point to the server? If so I wonder if they could be "holding the door open". Perhaps try as a test disabling them if any. Normally just for a VPN these would not be enabled, you would only use the virtual server options..

Do they plan to resolve with a firmware update ?

That is what the top level tech said, and shortly afterward firmware 1.8 came out. Well it was just strange timing, the firmware does not address the issue or resolve anything VPN (doesn't claim to either). So perhaps in 3-6 months firmware 1.9 will fix the VPN issue i am having.

That is too bad. Actually I have noticed there are quite a few problems with VPN's and different models of D-Link. Maybe not a priority for them.
Good luck with it.
