Sharing a VPN connection with 3 computers over wifi

Sharing a VPN connection with 3 computers over wifi

Sharing a VPN connection with 3 computers over wifi

Wonder if anyone can help.

In order to access the internet I have to go via a VPN - I'm supplied with a username and password which I use to gain access.

I have 3 computers in the flat which I would like to share the VPN internet connection with.

My connection to my ISP is via an ethernet connection - ie I'm connected to a hub within the building.

I have connected this ethernet cable into my wireless netgear router to allow me to access the VPN from anywhere within my flat.

At the moment only one computer can access the VPN at any one time.

I've searched the internet for a solution - there's been a number of suggestions - ie use a VPN router or share my internet connection within windows.

None of these have been suitable or worked.

Does anyone have a simple solution.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

RE: Sharing a VPN connection with 3 computers over wifi

What failed when you used the VPN router?  Which one did you try?

I tried to remain child-like, all I acheived was childish.
