Connect PIX506e to Cisco 2800 port FE 0/1

Iam having trouble with site to site VPN ( hardware used 2 x PIX 506e ) after removing a 5 port Linksys workgroup switch from the Cisco 2800 series router that was connected to the cisco router via straight through cable and had a straight through cable running from it to the pix. Everything was working fine except very slow internet because of the switch. Now the PIX 506e had to be connected to the cisco 2800 series router to port FE 0/1 via a crossover cable to relieve the bottleneck by getting rid of the workgroup switch. Unfortunately that was the only way to get connectivity between the Cisco router 2800 and the PIX 506e.
Any ideas why a crossover would kill a previously working site to site vpn ?

Make sure the speed duplex on both ports match.

We do have internet traffic though. Would this affect VPN traffic?

Packet drops from duplexing errors would slow down internet but could make VPN stop working entirely.
