    linksys wifi nic? it stops at negotiating security policies and then says
    per terminated connection.

    I read somewhere in this newsgroup that you need to use WEP security
    enabled before your VPN connection can work over wireless.

    Hope that helps.

  5. That isn't generally true -- though it is possible that some
    particular combination AP and VPN endpoint might happen to disable
    VPNs if WEP is turned off.

    It usually doesn't matter if someone sniffs your IPSec packets: IPSec
    usually includes encryption that doesn't suffer from the WEP flaws.
