I have installed An ASA5505 at home to replace my Linksys E4200 wireless router. I turned off DHCP in my linksys and just use it as an Wireless Access point, but gave it a static IP so that I could reach and manage it.
I also have an ASA setup at work in a test network and have set up a VPN tunnel between home and work.

I can ping back and forth from both networks. I can ping my wireless access port from my home network, but that is the only device I can't ping from the remote side. Does the linksys block traffic request off it's home subnet?
I found i had the same problem with my netgear Stora drive, but I change the stora's Sunbet mask to /16 so it thinks that both my home and remote network is one subnet.

The linksys will not let you select a subnet below a /24...

This is not really a huge problem, just wondered it there was a quick work around
