I know this isn't technically a Linux question (since right now the box 
I need to get working is a WinXP laptop), but I'm hoping some of the 
collective expertise of the list might be able to help me out.

I have a client who's asked me to set up VPN access to his network for 
some development work I'm doing. (On XP, this is evidently done with 
some abomination of a kludge called an IPsec policy or somesuch)...the 
problem is, my router, a Netgear MA801, doesn't seem to support VPN 
pass-through connections, so I can't actually connect to his network. 
I'm pretty well at the point where I think I'm going need a new router 
that really supports this nonsense, so...any recommendations or words of 
wisdom that anyone has would be most appreciated.
