Can't ping anything through Cisco ASA 5505 IPSec VPN Connection

We are trying to setup a VPN connection with little success.  We are able to connect to the network using Cisco's VPN Client.  However it doesn't see anything else through the VPN connection.  We aren't even able to ping the gateway.  As a matter of fact the gateway that gets assigned to you is also the IP that is assigned to you.  I don't know if that is how its supposed to be because I am no Cisco guru.  So to sum things up, we are able to connect to the VPN, we just are able to see any of the devices on that network once we are connected.  Below is the running config.

You don't have Nat Traversal enabled, so if you are testing this from behind another firewall that's NATing your traffic, it'll connect but won't pass any traffic.  

crypto isakmp nat-traversal 20

is the command to enable that feature.

Also it is rather normal to get the same IP number as your default gateway that you're assigned when you connect to the VPN.  This is normal.  Another possible problem you can run into with using the 192.168.1.x network as your primary VPN destination, as that's also the same IP subnet that's used by alot of other networks and firewalls.  If your sourcing your VPN test session from another network that's using 192.168.1.x network locally, It will connect but fail to pass traffic as all your traffic ends up going out the local network port and not thru the VPN tunnel.

And one last thing, you don't have Split Tunneling enabled.  This feature enables the remote VPN clients to access the Internet through their internet connection at the same time they're connected via the tunnel.  Refer to:

Great explanation and easy to understand.  Thanks!
crypto isakmp nat-traversal 20 is what i needed. It is odd that the VPN wizard did not enable this for me.
