Using two Cisco RVS4000 routers to create a VPN between two offices. A tunnel is supposedly set up successfully, because the router says it's "up" and I can access the admin interfaces of both routers from both locations by using their internal IPs (192.168.1.1 and 192.168.2.1). Trouble is, I can't reach any of the workstations or peripherals behind the routers. [more inside]

I'm a freelance contractor, and I'm having trouble connecting to a client's VPN. The problem is that I'm a contractor for a client of a client, so no one really seems to know what's going on, and I myself just barely understand how to set up a VPN to begin with. Google is only proving more confusing. Can the hive maybe point me in the right direction? [more inside]

What are the wireless ranges of the 802.11g radios in the following:
I specifically would like to know the range of each and does the WRT610N 802.11G radio have a greater range than the WRT54G 802.11G radio.
Not surprisingly, Linksys couldn't even help me.

Why isn't the VPN between two Cisco ASA 5505s working when I switch ISPs? One of the ASA 5505s is sort-of dual homed in the new configuration. The VPN appears to establish, but I can't pass traffic from one LAN to the other. [more inside]

I have a recently installed (upgraded) wireless network composed of 11 Cisco Aironet 1200 Access Points controlled by a Cisco 4400 WLC. The access points are running on the slim firmware, and are being controlled by the WLC. We are using the WLC to broadcast several different SSIDs from the access points, spanned across several different V-Lans
We are having massive intermittent connectivity problems. [more inside]

I have two Cisco 2610 routers, each with WIC-1DSU-T1 cards. We have a Point-to-Point between two locations and I am using these to route the traffic between.
The lines belong to Verizon and the AdTran cards are locked in a Verizon box. I can look in and see the status lights through the top. Each location has a RJ48X loopback jack.
When I plug in the Cisco at Location 1 it seems to hook up fine, and the carrier detect light pops up. (Which is strange to me because our PTP is unmonitored and I thought the CD would only come on when equipment is plugged into both ends.)
Then when I go and plug in the Cisco at Location 2, I get no lights, no nothing. I check the lights in the Verizon box and an alarm is triggered with a red LED. I disconnect the Cisco and it clears the alarm.
How can I figure out what the problem is? I had the company that provides the PTP come and check the circuit originally and they said they found problems but that the problems had gone away now. Is it possible that the WIC-1DSU-T1 card in this router is faulty?
Any help is appreciated!

Our small non-profit is trying to deploy some Cisco wireless bridges between buildings. Will a non-root bridge's radio show up as disabled if it cannot associate with the root-bridge?
Root Bridge on main building (Cisco 1240AG) - using 802.11A
2 satelite buildings have Cisco 1240AG Bridges in non-root mode using 802.11A
Radio status on root-bridge is up
Radio status on two non-root bridges is down
Using 802.11A patch antennas and RP-TNC LMR-400 cabling to antennas from AP. No run is over 50'. All antennas are line-of-sight and longest antenna to antenna run is 500'.

I am on a VLAN and cannot browse the domain. I can connect to servers e.g. //server1/ and see the dives etc. If I am on the same VLAN as the server - I can browse and see everything.
Is there perhaps a broadcast or something that the Cisco router is not allowing through?

I kind of need it to get out of a bad situation so learning quick would be much appreciated. I want to learn the fundamentals so that I can a) impress them b) begin the learning curve which is the hardest thing to do in my opinion.
BTW this is switch configuring for a wireless network. [more inside]
