Contivity VPN - Wired OK, Wireless not!

On my Dell Latitude D610 running Windows XP, I connect to my office network using iPassConnect v3.36 and Contivity VPN v6_01.014. I don't know anything about these softwares, but, I can connect when I am wired Cat5 direct to my Linksys wireless router. I can't connect using my Linksys PCMCIA wireless card. I keep getting 'Login failed. Please consult the switch log...". Why won't my wireless work?? I have IPSEC disabled. Any other ideas??

A few thoughts:
-You say you have IPSec disabled. IPSec is needed for both VPN connections
-Some wireless cards do not support VPN traffic. If you disable WEP or WPA encryption on the card, sometimes it will work with the VPN. On occasion you can have a conflict with the two encryptions
-The wireless router, if a different, may not support IPSec pass-through
-Is the wireless router in a different location. If so it may be using a different local subnet. If the local subnet of both ends of the tunnel are the same you will not be able to communicate over the VPN.

Thanks, I think I confused the IPSec passthru on the router with the IPSec service on the PC. I stopped the wrong one!
