Setting Up Linksys QuickVPN with the WRV54G Question
How do I configure the WRV54G and the Linksys QuickVPN client software to create a secure
VPN connection?
Please use the following instructions to set up your WRV54G and the QuickVPN client software.
NOTE: Linksys QuickVPN functionality with the WRV54G was added with firmware version 2.36. If you have an

earlier version than this, or if you do not see the QuickVPN options in the router pages as seen throughout this article, be sure to upgrade your router to the latest firmware version. Both the v2.36 firmware for the WRV54G and the Links QuickVPN Client utility software can be downloaded from:http://w w w.links ys.com/dow nload/firmw are.asp?fw id=1

Accessing the WRV54G\u2019s Setup Page
1.Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer orNetscape.
2.When the browser window opens, go to the Address bar and type in
the router's IP Address and click on theGo button ( is the default
IP address of Linksys routers).
3.A window will appear prompting for a \u201cUser Name\u201d and a \u201cPassword\u201d. Type in
the router's username and password and click on theOK button to login
(admin is the default username, andadmin is the default password).
4. The router's web-based \u201cSetup\u201d utility should then load.
Adding QuickVPN User Accounts to the WRV54G
Please use the following instructions to add VPN users to the WRV54G:
1.From the \u201cSetup\u201d page, click on the Access Restrictions tab.
2.When the \u201cAccess Restrictions\u201d page loads, click on the VPN Client Access sub tab.
3. When the VPN Client Access page loads, the following information will need to be entered for each user acco
you wish to create. Up to five (5) VPN user accounts can be added.
\u2022 Us er nam e: Enter the desired user name for the user. E-mail addresses are a good choice, for ease of
use. In the example below,links ysuser is used as the username.
\u2022 Pa s sw o rd: This is the user\u2019s login password that will be needed when a connection is made.
\u2022 Allow user to change password: This option can be enabled if you want the user to manage their own
password. If this option is not enabled, the user\u2019s password will have to be changed via the router
interface manually.
4.Add the account (or save any changes to an account) by clicking on theAd d /Sa ve button.
NOTE: At this point after adding the very first user account, and when the router detects that it is currently

configured to the default network, it will automatically attempt to change itself to be on a 10.x.x.0
network instead. The network numbering will be random (a possible network might be, for
example). This is done to prevent conflicts with remote networks. The router address will be set to 10.x.x.1.

You will still be able to access the router\u2019s web-based Setup utility at the default address, since all DNS requests will automatically redirect to the new address. If you previously had static IP addresses configured on the network (e.g.,, etc.), they will need to be changed to the new network numbering.

5.After creating user accounts, each one should appear in the VPN Client List Table.
6.Once you have finished adding a user and once the account is displayed on the VPN Client List Table list, clic
on the Save Settings button to save the changes.
7.To check VPN user statuses, you can access the router\u2019sStatus tab, and select the VPN Clients sub-tab.
Connection start times, end times, durations, and the ability to disconnect users, are all found in this section.
Setting up the Linksys QuickVPN Client Software
NOTE: The Linksys QuickVPN Software is compatible with Windows 2000 and Windows XP only.
1.Open the Linksys QuickVPN client program by double clicking on the System Tray icon ( ). If you do not se

the icon, run the program by going into the WindowsStart menu, pointing to thePrograms or All Programs option, selecting and opening the Linksys QuickVPN folder, and then clicking on the Linksys VPN Client. T System Tray icon should then appear, and you will be able to double-click and open it.

2. When the \u201cLinksys VPN Client\u201d window appears, enter the following information:
\u2022Profile Name: Enter a name for the VPN connection that you are configuring. For example, if you
connect to two different office VPNs, you can create two different profiles named \u201cOffice-1\u201d and \u201cOffice
2\u201d respectively. In the example below,Links ys is used as the profile name.
\u2022User Name: The user name assigned that will allow access to the VPN must be entered here. It is the
same user name for the account configured in the WRV54G \u201cVPN Client Access\u201d tab (instructions in t
section above). In the example below,links ysuser is used as the user name.
\u2022 Pa s sw o rd: The password that matches the \u201cUser Name\u201d must be entered. It is the same password for
the user account configured in the WRV54G \u201cVPN Client Access\u201d tab (instructions in the section
above). The password willnot be saved - you will need to enter a password every time a connection i
