Router faulty?

hi guys

I've had to repost and I may just jump out of a window. For four days, it has caused major problems.

Site A has a Draytek 2820vn. Within the VPN/Remote Management, I have configured it to dial-out to the router at Site B. Site B also has a Draytek 2820vn and is configured as dial-in. From Site A, I connect to Site B and we can see a connection. However, the packets transmitted from Site A are so high, that it causes the router at Site B to not be able to give access to those that are on the LAN and using it as a gateway. I have even done vice versa, Site B dialing into Site A, still the same thing via the routers. All of the ping rates suddenly go from 18ms to 800ms.

However, what is strange is that if I drop that connection and instead create a VPN from the PC at Site A, to dial into the same router at Site B, then everybody is fine.

Could this be a faulty router? I'm seriously desperate as it's caused the company a lot of hassle now.

Sounds likes possible firmware issue.

Make sure both routers are up to date

Sorry, probably resent it twice.

Would Firmware issues do that? Cause the VPN connection to create a problem like this?
As demazter stated, check firmware - if not then you could try replacing the router.. if you are looking to test without spending some cash then perhaps start with 2 cheap linksys vpn routers to test and see how well your tunnel is working.
