Can I replace an open network iconnect 624 modem with a cisco router in a small network that needs multiple PPTP VPN connection? iconnect 624 modem doesnt allow multple simultaneous PPTP VPN channels? So if i replace this modem with a cisco 881 router, will it work for ADSL 2+ internet and multiple simultaneous VPN connection? Please advice. Thank You.

  • Inbound VPN, or outbound VPN? – Mark Henderson Apr 23 '12 at 1:29
  • This modem should work as a medium for outbound VPN to head office. – ryju Apr 23 '12 at 1:36

The Cisco 800-series routers are very flexible devices, but they do not have built-in ADSL modems, so you will need to provide a modem device to put on the WAN link.

You should do fine with one. We have a few of them and we have many outbound PPTP VPNs running through them.

  • Could i please have the model name of any modem router which allows multiple simultaneous VPN channels? – ryju Apr 23 '12 at 3:46
  • @ryju - we don't do shopping recommendations on any of the Stack Exchange sites because of their very limited lifespan. See Q and A is hard, lets go Shopping and the FAQ for more details. However adding a simple ADSL2+ modem onto the WAN link of an 881 is cheap and easy. – Mark Henderson Apr 23 '12 at 5:22
