    My VPN Connection Keeps Dropping, *****es!!!!

    Seriously, wtf?

    Any Cisco tech-heads have any suggestions?

    We just got a new DSL modem/router (yeah, DSL, I know, but normally its rock solid) and it keeps dropping literally every 15 minutes.

    It's happening connecting wirelessly and through a wired connection.

    Is there any partciualr settings in the router I should be looking at to help combat this nonsense? We're using Cisco VPN 5.0.06.0160

    Holy sh!t... I think Ragu's VPN connection was also dropping last week.

    I think it's contagious.

    Locate and download a utility called "dr.tcpip" - test ur wired connection first - drop the mtu setting on the wired connection to 1500 and test the VPN connection

    Yes for real...cnet should have a copy
    U can go as low as a 1000- for testing - if it does work by lowering the mtu then I would contact the router support to have them look at their device
    Remember each time u change the mtu w the utility u need to reboot

    Run speed test. If you're not over .5 DL speed you're gonna have issues with a VPN connection.

    Ours is run for us so I don't know how to troubleshoot it

    Our ISP sent us a new modem/router because we've been having issues, and they said our old one was 'old as ****' but it worked. Now Im sure I have to mess around with some setting to get this **** to work. It seems to be dropping every 15 minutes, even when we aren't or or when data is being sent.

    Could be e-dust.

    Try running a magnet over your hard drive--that should clean out much of the dust and get you up and running quickly.

    POSSIBLY.

    How did you know that. Yeah I had to finally go to the actual store near the mall and demand a new box. The upgraded me to extreme for free. The thing would just drop whenever it felt like it really ****ed me in online poker tournaments.


    Wait what were you referring to *******..
