We currently have a WRT-160N which has on the whole been a reliable workhorse. However, it hasn't handled the proliferation of internet connected devices in our household very well, and it's ethernet wired connection is painfully slow (100Mbs) with our attached NAS. It therefore needs replacing. Looking for your suggestions. Specific requirements follow... [more inside]
My family and I are going to be out of the country for the next month, and we'd really like to watch the new season of House of Cards when it premiers on Valentines day. Does anybody have any advice on how to do this? Right now, I'm planning to get a TP-LINK TL-MR3020 router, install OpenWRT (and OpenVPN?) on it to configure it to access a States-side VPN, and stream Netflix to a Chromecast in our hotel room. Will this work? [more inside]

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 am trying to set up my router so that I can get at my files on my 3 NAS boxes. These NAS boxes are 1) D-Link DNS323, Infrant ReadyNAS NV+, and a Buffalo TeraStation HD-H2.0TGL/R5. The router is connected to the internet via a home service cable modem so it won't have a static IP and one step is to find the IP address before accessing. I have a router (DLink DGL-4100) which says it can make a IPSec VPN or FTP using a Virtual Server (I think). There would be no other PCs on the network since I would be taking my laptop with me when I access the network. The manuals for the routers talk about FTP serving but if I get a VPN set in my router then I should be able to just browse for whatever I want that way...right? The instructions say it can be done, but how? Please give me step by step instructions the best you can for setting up the router, the NAS boxes and my XP laptop (with suggested software, if necessary) since I have looked all over the internet and can't find anything I can understand. Of course the access should be encrypted and password protected. THANKS GUYS. [more inside]
ITfilter: Thinking about a new firewall/WAN VPN router - should I bother trying to roll my own with m0n0wall? [more inside]
I am trying to set up a VPN server at the office using our Juniper Networks SSG5-v92-LAN firewall/router and, if needed, a server running Windows Server 2003. The reason why I'm saying "if needed" is because the router itself seems to be able to handle VPN connections without the need of a seperate server, unless the username and password needs to be authenticated against another computer.

What is the easiest/best way create a secure tunnel or VPN connection back to my home network to act as a relay for private interneting? Is it possible to do this using just a router that would be on anyway so I don't have to have a computer running all the time just to act as a relay? [more inside]

VPN problems: I'm trying to find a basic wireless router (802.11b) that will let me have more than one VPN connection passing through it. All the consumer models I see support VPN but will only let me have one computer using VPN at a time. Anyone know of such a product or - even better - use such a thing?
