I currently have a router (2Wire Home PNA) that is connected to 3 computers in my home, one of which is a laptop.
I wanted to try wireless so I bought a Wireless access point to connect to my router (DLink AirPlus Extreme G - model G700AP). I also bought a Cardbus Adapter (DLink model G630Z). I connected the wireless access point to my router and was able to use the wireless connection to access the internet without a problem.
However, I also use this laptop for work, and in order to connect to the servers at the corporate office, I use a VPN dialer to make the connection. I found that I am unable to use the VPN connection through the wireless connection, thus defeating the purpose of the wireless connection. I had hoped that I would be able to connect to the vpn wirelessly so that I could take my laptop anywhere in the house.
Whenever I try to dial in, the VPN dialer just says "Initializing the connection.. Initiating TCP to ##.##.##, port 58442." However, it never connects.
I'm not very well informed about networks and VPN, so if anyone can provide a simple answer and a solution I would be extremely grateful.
