RealVNC questions about ports and display number

Dragos,

I have used Dlink and Linksys wireless routers without any problems for
years with VNC over the wireless connection.  It must be something in your
setup.

More specifically, right now I am using a Linksys WRT54G with no issues.

Regards,

Arthur

I'll reply to this message as a way of getting back on my soap box.  I have
yet to find one retail router that can be used with VNC over the wireless
connection.  I don't know what they are missing, but it's not the port
forwarding part as I have another device that needs port forwarding and it
works fine over wireless.  As James found out, they work fine over wired
connections.

So, if someone knows of a retail router that can be used with VNC over the
wireless connection, please let us know.
