We have an AT&T VPN client that by design causes all other  LAN connection to be dropped.  I think the ATT tech guy said that if the VPN client was on a different subnet it would not conflict with our LAN.   I have a Windows XP server, and a linksys router.  I would like to asssign a different subnet for the PC where the VPN software is installed.   How can I do that?

If the model of the Linksys allows it you could create a new VLAN or use the DMZ function and put the client on that but that could then isolate it from your other PC's, servers, etc.

I have the Linksys Wrt54g is does not have VLAN,    I googled the DMZ feature and I see that it opens all ports to the IP address.  That is fine, but are you sure that the VPN will be prevented from closing down the rest of the lan?

I don't know anything about that. I don't know what they are doing that causes that shut down. I was just trying to give you some options.
