Can two different computers use the same router and connect to two different VPNs?

One router, two computers, two VPN connections

My wife and I both work at home for different companies. We both connect to our corporate network through VPN using wireless laptops connected to a wireless router. Are we both able to connect to our VPNs at the same time? Is this a problem?

Yes provided that no forward of ports (for specific VPN) in the router.

If have the forward of ports VPNs should support different ports.

fsouzabrasil,

How do I find out if forward of ports in the router?
Router is cisco WRT546.
VPN software is Nortel Contivity VPN client V06_01.014.
Connection is Comcast Cable.

Nortel Contivity does not need any port forwards. If you can establish one VPN connection with your configuration, the second should not be any problem.

... if the internal (VPN Client) and external (VPN target) IPs are diffferent, as it is the case with your environment.
