I have VPN with I used their installer and it installed an openvpn thingie in my taskbar, i just right click it and press connect and im all set.

I have now subscribed to a second vpn provider, but there I had to set myself up manually through windows. This one does not connect when im connected wirelessly to my router, but works when im plugged in to my router, or when im connected to dialup.
It freezes on "verifying username and password" and then gives an "error 721" saying remote computer did not respond.

Is there anything i should check with my windows configuration? I googled around but couldn't find anything since one vpn connection works but this other one doesen't. My router is SMC2804WBRP-G  and the wireless card in my laptop is - Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG

Thank you for any help.
