Hi all,
I first called the xnet/WxC technical support but they simply told me to come here...
actually prior to this I searched the world wide brain but could not find a solution, I suspect I will need a new router or ISP

I have a WAG310G and wish to connect to my work via a IPsec VPN connection (Checkpoint) but it fails from home, works at a friends and works in the office using an ADSL connection there, so the problem must be my router.

I was instructed to enable VPN passthrough on the router but I see no option in the WAG310G configuration screens
Firmware Version:1.00.03(100701-1727)-AU

The cisco support site indicates that under the security section of their routers there is a VPN Passthrough section, however this is not visible on my WAG310G, e.g: 

This is not visible on my WAG310G running the current firmware (and only firmware I can find for it) 

Also, searching the xnet knowledge base for the word "VPN" returns exactly zero results, it must be this source of knowledge the phone technical support people rely on for assisting customers...

If I need a new router can someone please recommend one that will work nicely with WxC/xnet (VOIP) and also an apple time capsule which I use to provide a 5GHz wireless-N network?

does anyone out there know if this $49 ADSL2+ router (that supports IPsec) has support for SIP (VOIP) if I connected an a ATA device?

NetComm NB5 ADSL2+ Modem Router wi/ USB and Single Ethernet 10/100 LAN port VPN Pass-through IP-Sec TI Chipset SPI firewall

it only has the 1 LAN port so to connect to my PS3 and time capsule (wireless-N base station) and an ATA I would also need a switch (gigabit preferably)

or at the end of the day I am maybe better off getting the one device such as the Cisco SRP527 recommended by WxC (as they have confirmed the WAG310G does not support IPsec)

Please don't create duplicate threads, it just splits the replies.

Looks like you have replies in the other thread

Ok sure.. But the other thread was to get the attention and advice from someone at WxC, which itdid finally and this thread was to get more independent and unbias advice rather than the standard "just use the router we sell and support" which is all they have really done thus far...

Fyi i plan to try a $49 ADSL2+ router and connect the wag310g to it as an ATA plus a $59 gigabit 5 port switch rather than buy another expensive all in one device that WxC recommend...
