My ASUS router at the remote is capable of either PPTP or Open VPN. I am currently using the PPTP VPN method to operate my Flex remotely. I have heard that the OpenVPN method is more secure and efficient? Any IT people out there that can fill me in on the best method to use? I also use the ASUS DDNS service which worls very well in keeping the VPN connected via the PPTP.
I do not get vey many dropped packets but the signal strength indicator on the 6700 goes from excellent to red and all points in between but there are no freeze ups or audio loss even when the Ethernet status indicator shows red. Not sure what is causing that large variation in the signal strength status through a 6ft long wired connection but that's another question.
