Connecting problems with a VPN

My neighbour works from home and connects to the office VPN to synchronise work files etc. She has been using a dial up modem for this and it connects to the VPN straight away after authentification, (username and password).
She now has a Belkin Wireless ADSL Router. This is connected to the works laptop via ethernet cable. She uses the wireless side for her home laptop computer. The Belkin supports VPN. However when she tries to connect to the office VPN with the broadband connection it takes ages to connect and login. (between 5 and 30 mins). Are we missing a setting somewhere that will speed up the log in? We are using the built in Belkin Firewall. The office laptop is running Windows 2000 Professional.

It could be an MTU problem. Try setting the MTU on the laptop to a lower value and see what happens.
