I am having a problem attempting to connect to my VPN using my Windows Vista Laptop.. If I connect the laptop directly wired to the router, I can successfully connect to my VPN connection. But, if I connect the laptop to the router wirelessly, I cannot successfully establish a connection to my VPN. Can someone please help provide some insight on my issue? Thank you!

My "generic" Vista networking troubleshooting is:
1) Disable IP v6
2) Disable the DHCP Broadcast flag: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/928233
3) Update the router firmware.

I got this from similar issues with my NetGear routers, but have heard of similar problems with the LinkSys
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
