I'm using the Cisco VPN client to connect to my HQ PIX Firewall 506. nat-traversall (on PIX) and Transparent Tunneling (VPN client) has been enabled. When I use the dailup, it could connect successfully. If I connecting to internet through the Linksys WRT54G v2. It couldn't work. Firmware has been upgraded to latest version and already configured with IPSec passthrough. Any idea ?

    does it work if you remove the Linksys from the equation - unplug the linksys and and plug the vpn vlient directly into the broadband.  either that or disable your firewall.  its just a test, but it will let you know if the problem is the Linksys or not.
