Trouble With Openvpn and Tomato On Linksys e3000

Hi I have been running openvpn on a linksys wrt54gl running tomato and it has been working like a dream.  Recently the old router has started to have some wireless issues so I deiced to upgrade the hardware to a linksys e3000.  I checked compatibility and tomato has a vpn bundle just for that router.  So I installed it and transferred the settings from the old one to the new one.  However my client connects to it or so it says but it never pulls an ip address and shows as disconnected in ipconfig /all.  I am not sure what to look for to trouble shoot this so an suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    I have tested further and tried with another computer to log in.  It shows the server ip as %S on the first router it showed the connected ip address and the traffic back and forth.  This is still showing as though it was connected no error messages but no real connection either.  I really don't know how to troubleshoot this problem  Some kind of list I could go through for testing would be great.
