WRT160N V2 multiple PPTP connections


I have a problem, try to connect multiple computers to a PPTP VPN.

I have a WRT160N connected to the internet with the option of Automatic Configuration - DHCP

2 computers behind the router to get IP from the router via DHCP

I can connect to a computer, without any


When I try to connect with my second computer freezes just the connections.

I read it has todo with GRE packets, or almost, I'm not an expert in network so

This information is enough for me, my questions are:

1 - is it possible to use this router and have more than one connected computer

to the VPN?

2 - If not is there any other wireless router I can use to fix this?

Any help will be greatly welcomed

Thanks in advance


It depends on. It should be possible to connect to two different PPTP servers in the internet.

It is not possible to connect two computers on the same PPTP server via a NAT router. This is simply because the router should dig a lot deeper in the GRE to distinguish traffic Grateful for two client connections between the PPTP server and the router's public IP address.

  • Not ios10 blocking VPN PPTP connections through personal hotspot?

    I use an iPhone 6 + and was upgraded to ios10, two days ago.

    While I don't have a configuration of the VPN connection on the phone, I connect my computer laptop personal hotspot of the iPhone to use internet and sometimes connect to a VPN.

    Before my upgrade to ios10, my laptop could still connect to the VPN while connected to the hotspot from my iPhone.

    After that I updated to ios10, my laptop does not connect to the VPN I connect to.

    I see reports that Apple has abandoned the use of the connection for PPTP VPN connections on ios10.

    But most of the people having problems seem to be people who connect to their phones directly to the VPN in the iPhone settings.

    In my case, my phone is just acting under the guidance of the internet on my laptop but it seems that it does not obstruct my laptop to connect to a pptp even connection if that should have no impact on the phone itself.

    I went down to ios9 and my laptop can connect again to the VPN.

    But now my Apple Watch does not work with my phone because I improved the watch to os3.

    Any ideas if there is a work around for the connection for pptp connections using the hotspon on ios10?

    Apple mentions alternative - Prepare for the removal of PPTP VPN before you upgraded to iOS 10 and macOS Sierra - Apple Support

  • Win 7 crashes when you use multiple wifi connections.

    Hi Shinmilla,

    I have a problem with Win 7. How did it crash the system when you use multiple wifi connections. How can I stop this from happening?

    Thank you.

    Hi Triode888,
    It is not recommended to have multiple Wifi connections since signals can be contradictory and therefore it crashes.
    You can't have several active Wifi connections at the same time.
    Also, I suspect it might be caused by your network wireless itself. It could be automatically connected to a network of 'death '. So please check that your wireless network is disabled or no if you do not use.
    You have installed VMware or Virtual PC?
    If so, these programs will create a new network - please open the network and sharing Center and disable these additional networks.

    1. open the network and sharing Center page in the control panel.
    2 confirm that it says multi-network right under the icon in the Middle, like the screenshot above.
    3. click on the link customize to the right of the first illustrated network, directly under the Internet icon, to display the window set the network location:
    4. move the window set the network location away, but let him open. (You'll need it in a minute, but at a time where it is otherwise inaccessible.)
    5. back on the network and sharing Center page, click on the link manage network connections (in the left task pane).
    6. in the network connections window, select the network adapter through which you get your Internet connection. (The views drop-down list, select Details; you want probably said something like network, unidentified in the status column.)
    7. click on disable this device network above (next to the big red X) button. Wait a few seconds for the chart on the network and sharing Center page to reflect the change.
    8. return to step #3 set network location window, and click on the merge or remove link network down locations.
    9. Despite Vista earlier assertion that he detected "multi-network," you will see probably only a single network in the window of merge or delete network locations:
    10. turn highlighted the only participant and then click on remove. (If there is more than one, you can delete all.)
    11. When you are finished, close the merge or delete network locations, and then close the window set the network location.
    12 return to the network connections window and with the adapter disabled network always highlighted the #6 step, click the option activate this device network (next to the big orange arrow) button.
    13. after 10-15 seconds of delay, your Internet connection should work now, signified by the absense of the treacherous of entries multiple networks in the network and sharing Center page:

  • Applications of multiple simultaneous connection with invalid password saturates the UDP ports and can lower the infrastructure of database 11g.

    Problem statement:

    Multiple simultaneous connection requests with invalid password saturates the UDP ports and can bring down the 11 GR 2 ( database infrastructure.

    When the API try to put applications that is not able to connect and DB is still suspended as long and we restarted to solve the problem.

    Have you tried to use the password?

    I have to say that I am skeptical about this claim. I didn't know the database or the listener down due to attempts to connect not valid. Can you give us an error message or two confirming this?

    The right course of action is to use the correct password in the application.

  • Multiple simultaneous connections to a secure area with the same id/password user

    I was wondering if someone can answer this.

    We are creating a secure member area - there will be 3 area secure, air-conditioned and equipped with identical conent - a (one-time) 3 day trial, monthly subscription (recurring) and annual subscription (recurring).

    The user logs in the generic secure area.

    At this point, we can have multiple simultaneous connections with the same credentials in the secure area user - I was expecting it to be like the administration area where you get hunted if someone else logs into your account.

    Is there a way to limit the number of simultaneous connections with the same ID and password to a secure area (generic)?

    See you soon


    This is actually a bug that they re not for awhile. If you connect to another place he should expel you from the other source of security.

  • Linksys Router WRT160N - Wireless does not connect to the cable modem

    I installed the Linksys WRT160n router to replace an existing G router. When installed the new wireless router works, but the router does not receive a connection (IP address - look under status) of the cable modem (so no internet). When I reconnect the old router and then connect the new router, I get any internet connection through two routers (so the old dishes router the IP address that accepts the new router).

    I have configured the router N new for

    "Automatic configuration - DHCP", no need for connection, IP address dynamic, etc (as required by ISP - Timewarner)

    I tried to renewal and release IP address by the router N when it is connected directly to the main switch (the switch to connect to the cable modem). In so doing, shouldn't that assign a new IP address to the router?

    I am allowed 3 IPs from the cable company (because of the switch) and I use all three with three different internet IP cameras to each address for home security system.

    Any suggestions on why the router is not connecting to the internet? Do I need to reboot physically everything on the network, including the cable modem?

    If I understand your post, you said that your ISP gives you 3 Internet IP addresses and you have 3 cameras that use one of these Internet IP addresses.  If this is correct, then that leaves no IP Internet address for your WRT160N use - so that would explain why your WRT160N cannot get an Internet connection.

    If I misread your post, and you have an Internet IP address available for the WRT160N, you might have a problem with your modem and two WRT160N tries to use the same 192.168.1.x subnet.  To check this, follow these steps:

    (1) Please indicate addresses that use your cameras (IE before you take the test below).  If the addresses do not begin with 192.168, then erase the last half of each address.

    (2) Please indicate your ISP

    (3) Please indicate the make and exact model of your modem (not the WRT160N) number.

    (4) Please do the following test:

    Put your entire network.  Disconnect the switch (including cameras) to the modem.  Using an ethernet cable, connect your modem directly to your computer.  (Do not use the WRT160N for this test).  Turn on the modem and the computer.  Make sure you have an active Internet connection, then go ahead with what follows: (even if your Internet connection does not work, include this and move forward.)

    Go to 'Start' > all programs > Accessories > command prompt.
    A black DOS window will appear. Type "ipconfig/all" (with no quotes), and press the Enter key.   Copy all results in your next post.  To make the copy, highlight the results, and then use the keys copy (Ctrl-c) and paste (Ctrl-v) keys.  If your "IP address" does not begin with 192.168, then for security reasons, delete the latter half of your IP address.

  • WRT160N router is not connecting to Internet

    I installed the router correctly, I changed the IP as the instructions says here. Yet so far none of my wired computers can connect to the internet. I still am posting this on my laptop wireless through the same router. According to LELA my connection on my wired computers is ok.

    What version of the WRT160N you (v1 or v2) and what firmaware is installed. If it's buil 11 you need to downgrade to build 8 by following the instructions in the link I provided previously. Build 11 is too unstable to solve effectively, without a downgrade to build 8 (as appropriate to your router) is a waste of time to try to solve your problem.

    Tell us the router and the firmware version, and we can go from there.

  • Router WRT160N v2 lose wired connections have to restart the router, then all is well again.

    Hi all...

    I'm having some trouble with my WRT160N v2 router, now I use it only to share the internet connection between wired PC.

    I have tride (with the help of live chat) to reduce the size of the MTU to 1300, with no success, also an update of the firmware was informed, but I can't find an update for the version "v2" of the WRT160N router.

    The behavior is really funny:

    -Get random msgs "cable network is disconnected" and "local network connection is now connected".

    * plugged direct cable from my modem to the PC then there is no problem, me makes me believe cables are ok

    -Some sites don't be loading not on two PCs connected to the router, Firefox and IE8 trough during live chat, confirmed the site is up, it's as if something is stuck in the cache of the router or something that prevents some loading sites, sites that happen are random, the browser are not even a real attempt to connect but go now empty.

    -Repair windows and hollow EasyLink advisor will have no effect, Easylink advisor indicates that the connection is good when it doesn't appear, restart the router is always fix the problems (for a while)

    Modem: Comcast Cable

    Router: WRT160N v2

    It should list version 1, 2 and 3, when you go to: http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/WRT160N/download

    Here are the instructions to DOWNGRADE the WRT160N V2, DO NOT USE this on VERSION 1 or 3, it will turn your router into a door stop!


  • Multiple VPN connections using 871 router


    I have the cisco router 871 at the site of the retail that connects to the corporate site. I also want to connect a device to the sharing network partner, but it needs to connect to their virtual private network.  Is it possible to configure the 2 VPN connection to 2 different company sites in this scenario?

    Thanks for your help.



    You can configure multiple VPN tunnels on the router (whether on the same interface or different interfaces).

    You can then perform the traffic from a tunnel in another tunnel, if you must do the same.

  • Display Client to connect to multiple servers connection?

    I work for a company that has a lot of customers who have the configuration of Vmware View. Sometimes I use it for remote access to their networks when im doing support for them, but unfortunely it seems that the View Client can only connect to a single server for connection of both organizations.

    Is it possible to change this default behavior?

    For example, our internal broker is desktops.ourdomain.local... but I also want to connect to your desktop at desktops.customerxyz.com too.

    There is an unsupported switch allowing you to have multiple sessions running view sublabel.   I don't remember if it is - standalone or just a standalone-, but that should do the trick.

    Why not!!!  You can use "Sun xVM VirtualBox" (software that allows you to use another Windows throw Windows)

    You just need to have a usb ADSL modem modem. While you can link the usb modem to the virtual Windows. (And a download in the virtual Windows Manager). This (USB MODEM) is necessary because the main window does not define the usb modem ( again MUST NOT IDENTIFY) TO IDENTIFY THE MODEM IN THE VIRTUAL WINDOWS ACTIVATE activate the setting of the Sun xVM VirtualBox USB controller and then install the software of your modem for the virtual Windows and then start the download. After The Connect WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access () To the Main Windows. Then, start the download with it. So easy! only, you should spend some time to get rid of.
    I've tried it! This works.
    1. you should allocate your hard drive for your virtual windows.
    2. If you want to transfer files between two windows, you must enable the USB controller in the setting Sun xVM VirtualBox .  And a Flash memory is required to transfer files between two windows.
