Default Re: what is the best router for DD-WRT firmware?

The Link sys routers don't handle GRE (Generic Route Encapsulation) VPN tunnels very well. Just doesn't happen and there's no way to trick it.The only (cheap) router I can think off that would handle GRE tunneling would be an inexpensive Cisco 800 series. They're nice and reasonable on eBay.Now rather than using GRE tunnels (These are so your VPN server and exchange routing updates with the other VPN peer), couldn't you just set up a regular IPSec/3DES tunnel between your VPN server and the head-end peer? You won't be able to route all of the remote networks through the VPN server but you'd be able to NAT all of the remote networks through the VPN server.
