    first, some quick background:
    My cable modem is connected with a Linksys 4-port router with VPN. My wife's work demanded this for when she works at home with her company's laptop. This set-up is upstairs. I want to get a wireless set-up going for my laptop computer (it is downstairs). I tried hooking up a Linksys 4-port wireless-g router to it, but between me and Linksys email tech support, we could not get it done. Taking the VPN router off and just using the wireless router worked fine, but then my wife cannot work from home.
    Here is what I want to do:
    connect a the Linksys 4-port wireless access point to the VPN router. I figure this is the best shot I have of getting wireless to work for me while my wife has her required VPN router going also.
    Here is the question:
    before I go buy the access point, I would like to know if there are any issues with getting the access point to work with the VPN router. Is this an easy task? If so, are there any special steps to take in doing this?

    Thank you for your help.
