Does anyone know if there have been any reported issues with using the SKY NETGEAR Router with VPN?
I have been trying to configure my VPN for this Router but it will not work.
It worked perfectly with my other Draytek Router but obviously I have to use SKY's Router with SKy Broadband.

Well mine works
I use my connection to occasionally check work stuff via VPN, and everything seems to work fine. My only problem is the way the sync speed varies regularly, and the fact I can't login to the broadband portal. A real pain as I've only just received the password.

all discussion on this subject is not allowed on here :-(
However the search tool on the forum works
There is a thread for research purposes only, and we do not recommend using a non Sky router, as you would be falling foul of their T and C's

To use the AT&T VPN client, I had to activate a Firewall Rule in the router. I selected VPN-IPSEC from the pull down list.

What VPN software are you using? I connect to a hardware SonicWALL TZ170using the GVC and it pushes thru with no Sky router config required. Are you getting any entries in the router log, Windows event log or better still VPN log?
