BT Voyager 2100 Wireless Router and Cisco VPN

Hi There, I have a BT Voyager 2100 Wireless Router which connects wirelessly to my work laptop fine, i have broadband internet access which is great but cannot seem to ping any of my servers on the corporate lan.  Cisco VPN Client connects and gives me an ip address from the VPN Pool ok but thats as far as i get, i cannot ping any of the servers behind the firewall which i used to be able to do using a speedtouch usb modem.

has anyone else come accross this and managed to resolve the issue?  if so i'd love to hear how you did it.

VPN's use 1 of 3 main protocols; PPTP, L3TP, and IPSec. The Cisco client uses IPSec. I did quite a bit of digging and could find no reference that the BT Voyager 2100 supports IPSec. I did find articles saying it supported PPTP and L2TP. Some routers do not support all of these protocols, and this may be the problem. Getting an IP is part of the basic TCP/IP connection, the IPSec protocol is not needed until data has to be encapsulated and transmitted back and forth, so this may well be the problem. BT have a fee e-mail support service. You might want to try to contact them to see if this is the case:

Also, sometimes with newer firmware versions, features are added. Make sure you have the latest firmware. Though they do list some updates on line, they do not state what changes are included. If lucky, it might resolve.
