VPN Advice

I am about to pull my hair out.  I purchased 2 Linksys BEFSX41 routers with VPN endpoints.  I am currently entering my sixth hour (not all at once) on the phone with Linksys support.  I am trying to connect two home offices together so that the remote location can login to a database on the other end.  We both have cable modems and dynamic ip addresses.  I do have a FQDN of sevenpoints.dyndns.biz setup and tracking the ip on one end.  That part works perfectly.  Linksys can't seem to get these to establish a tunnel.  Does anyone have any other suggestions as to how I can establish a VPN tunnel so that I can take back these routers?  Thanks.

Is it possible your ISP is blocking VPN traffic?

Try establishing a VPN tunnel to the remote router using IPSEC policies on a workstation, using "passthrough" on the local router. If this is successful, then you know the ISP is not blocking the traffic.
Do you have different LAN subnets on the two ends? You need to have different subnets on each site..
