Vpn wifi crash

Fri Apr 12, 2013 8:32 pm

Hi,
I've upgraded my pi to wireless which was straightforward, but when I try and use the vpn (pptpd) connection over wifi, the raspberry pi crashes. When I revert to wired, everything works fine.

Any ideas

Crashes as in Kernel Panic ?
Total Freeze ?
Do you have a screen connected to the Pi so you can see what it does when it crashes ?

Is the WiFi dongle plugged straight into the Pi or is it plugged into a powered hub ?

Plug a screen in so you can see what goes on when it crashes.

Hi. Have you had any luck with this? I had the same issue months ago and decided to stick with it being hard wired in the end. Someone suggested it may be to do with the USB wifi adapter causing the crash due to incompatibility with this type of connection. I have no idea.
