Netgear and Actiontec

By cjones54 ·
I have a verizon DSL service. I bought my own DSL modem which is a Actiontec GT704. I also have a netgear Rangemax wireless router. I have the Netgear pluged into the Actiontec. I have it designed as a core(Actiontec DSL) and internal (Netgear). So you have the network and you have a network. The problem I am running into is, I work from home sometimes and I have to use my VPN Client for connection to my company's network. Every time I try to connect it tells me that the device I'm is not operting correctly. Can anyone walk me through the setup for both devices? On the Netgear it tells me the LAN port link is down, and I've tried different IP's static routes etc to get the link up and no go. Any idea's?

Try opening ports 500 & 4500, and/or set the Netgear as a DMZ

Hi and i thank you again for the helpful tip. It did not work. When I configured it for a DMZ I lost all connection. When I set the Actiontec router firewall config with a medium level IPSEC still does not work and I lose my access to my company's mail service. If you have any more tips I'd appreciate it.
