Once connected to Cisco AnyConnect I can't ping anything on the network

I can connect to anyconnect just fine, but once connected, I cannot ping anything on the network.  I'm pretty sure split tunneling is cofigured correctly.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

Do you have this command in your Cisco VPN device to allow ICMP?
access-list <access-list name> extended permit icmp any any

Can be several things, depending on your configuration. Pasting your config would help to find out.
Some checks though:
- On the anyconnect client you can see if split tunnelling is really in effect.
- You can check the byte RX and TX count in either asdm or by the command:
show vpn-sessiondb svc
- are you allowing vpn connections by default through superseeding any access-lists:
sh run all sysopt
check if the sysopt connection permit-vpn is there
- are nat excempts in place?

Please show the config

For some reason, I created another DHCP Pool and it starting working.  All is working now.  Thanks.

I had the same problem; pulled my hair out double and triple checking config.  I had Anyconnect vpn client connecting to cisco router webvpn ok, but could only ping the webvpn ip address from client side and client assigned address from cisco router side; could not ping anything else on inside network.  

Turns out I had the dhcp pool for the vpn clients in the same subnet as my ethernet interface fe0/1 (client dhcp pool - For some reason this won't route correctly.  I changed client dhcp pool to - and all is working great now.
