I have 2 networks.  A home one with a laptop wireless and a PC hard wired and then an office with 1 wireles laptop and 4 wired PC's.  Both networks use a TRENDNET WIRELESS ROUTER TEW 435BRM

I have a PC in the office that have installed extra hard drives and with use of a few cameras and a PCI DRV card turned it into a CCTV PC.  I want to view the cameras remotely over the internet and found out that to do this I need to use a VPN as the logmein.com software is not compatible and the Software that came with my DVR cards require ideally a VPN setup.

So I bought a NETGEAR ProSafe VPN Firewall FVS318 some time ago and decided that I can put it to use.

So I have my phone line cable plugged into my Trendnet router, then a Cat5 cable going from one of the Trendnet ethernet ports into the INTERNET port on the vpn, then I have a cat5 cable going from the local1 ethernet port in the VPN into the back of my computer.

Then I have typed 192.168.0.1 into the browser and entered my ISP's username and password.

When I click TEST, the internet connect does not work CAN SOMEONE HELP PLEASE.

Just one last thing, I dont have the "blue ethernet cable that came with the VPN" so is this a problem.  BOTH ethernet cables I am using are STRAIGHT is that correct?

Thank you very much in advance to your feedback
