issues with cisco asa and Linksys (sit-to-site)

hi all!  configuring ASA firewall for site-to-site vpn with linksys has taken its toll on me.   do i need to create the firewall rules on the ASA?  There is a site-to-site guide from cisco site which is pretty straight forward but still, the linksys would show connected but i am not able to ping either sites... linksys site-to-site with another linksys, no problem.  any insights from anyone would be greatly appreciated.

For Cisco Linksys RV series to non-Cisco routers, I use NAT Traversal for some setups. I do not use Aggressive Mode. These settings are found in the Advanced settings of the Tunnel Setup.

Try NAT Traversal:  Both ends on, One end on, Other end on.
