easy:  link me a router that allows multiple vpn passthrough's at the same time - router doesnt have to be a vpn server or vpn client, just allow windows vpn clients to get out and connect

this shouldn't be too hard

looking for recommendations on a router that can support about 10 windows workstations executing their own windows vpn client, connecting to a remote vpn server (server 2008)

the vpn client/server setup works - that's not the problem... it worked fine with a watchguard firebox.  when the watchguard died, it was temporarily replaced by a standard linksys home router.  when that happened, none of the windows vpn clients can connect now, they just time out.

this router will not be a vpn endpoint, and it will not establish a vpn as a client to something else - it just needs to allow multi-passthrough

If you go into the linksys settings there should be an option for l2tp passthrough, pptp passthrough, and usually upnp is there too. Turn both the passthroughs on.

However if all 10 stations are goin to use the VPN it's much more efficient for the router to be a VPN client. Ddwrt does this very easily.  If you don't want to install it, buffalo has some routers with it preinstalled.
