Cisco VN client connects - no traffic

Posted on 2006-06-07

I can connect to my VPN via EVDO with no issues. I log in, and can ping every PC on my network. From home however, going hough my wifi connection, I connect to the VPN but cannot send any traffic through. At home, I'm simply connected to a D-Link 624 router. My previous IPSEC client worked just fine (SafeNet SoftRemote). No other PC's on my home LAN are using a VPN and I've even set myself as the DMZ on the DLINK. When I reboot and connect to the VPN - I send a ping. I get one reply back and that's the only traffic I can send altogether. I'm really not sur what my problem is.

    I'm connecting to a pix 515. I've determined that it's only happening on the wireless connection. If I bring my laptop to the router and plug in - no issues. I've also reinstalled the client.

    Do you have isamp nat-traversal enabled on the PIX?
    Have you tried using the SetMTU utility in the CiscoVPN Client directory to set the MTU to 1300?
    I had virtually the same issue a long while back and had to roll back to an older firmware on my router (old Linksys wireless).
    Do you have XP with SP2 and all the updates?
    What version of Cisco client? The latest is 4.8 something..

    Tried a linksys WRTGX2 router and it worked great. No issues. It's def the dlink. Too bad the linksys with SRX kills all my corless phones.

    Rolled back my driver and it worked. WTF!!!

    Here is what d-link says changed with the firmare I had:

    ¤ Support for JumpStart.
    ¤ Support for WMM.
    ¤ Improves performance.

    Thanks for the great description. I gues it didn't like jumpstart (whatever the hell that is)

    SO frustrating. After all my searching as well, I can't believe there weren't a couple dozen people complaining somewhere!
