I had the same issue with my linksys router.

The issue was that my internal network ip range was 192.168.*
When connecting through to work which was also managed on the 192.168.* range.

I changed my internal network ip range to 172.10.10.* and from then i had no more problems.

Checkpoint settings are the following
on the site address the following settings may also help.
IKE Advanced settings
Force UDP and also IKE support should be ticked.

My firewall has not created any problems but you may need to add the ports.

Hope this helps
