Setup VPN Tunnel

I have been unable to get a functional VPN tunnel setup between my office and home:
Sometimes, when I try to connect, it will say connected, other times it wont.
If it does say connected, I still cant browse the remote network, and, eventually it drops the connection and instead says waiting for connection

Here is the setup:

Office Static IP. Linksys WRV54G connected in bridge mode to a dsl modem/router.

You have subnets set up at each end for the addressing (which is normal). In IPSec setups that I use, I have a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. Should you be doing the same here?  ... Thinkpads_User

Good idea. I'll try it, but, I'm at work and can't remote desktop into home computer, so I'll have to wait until later.

Thanks.
