Vonage Greetings - First time poster here so please bear with me. I've been having

Greetings -

First time poster here so please bear with me. I've been having trouble logging into my company's VPN remotely since getting the Vonage service/router. First off, let me tell you about my home network. I have a wireless high speed connection coming into the house. Since there's no hardware in the house other than the ethernet cable and a small black connector smaller than a pink pencil eraser block (with an external power transformer/plug for the wall) and the VPN connection worked prior to the Vonage switch, I have no reason to think that is the point of failure. Anyway, that cable comes into the Internet port of the Vonage router and an ethernet cable connects to a Linksys wireless router WRT54G V3 (ethernet port to ethernet port). I am able to connect my work PC to the internet without any trouble, and our home PC is connected to the WRT54G. The phone and home PC work fine as well. But when I try to connect my work PC to my work VPN, the connection is established (had a remote IP address appear when typing "ipconfig" in a cmd window) and immediately shutdown - and I seem to have stumped the world on what's wrong. I've checked the WRT54G's status page and expected the IPs to be populated, but they were all zeros. I wasn't sure if that should be the case, so I tried the "release DHCP" and "renew DHCP" buttons, but nothing changed.

I've spoken to Vonage techs, who tell me that the Vonage router *MUST* be the first box my high speed link connects to, yet a coule folks at work tell me otherwise. I've spoken to my company's IT folks, who had me open ports and forward it specifically to my PC's wireless card IP or the hardwire port's IP. Linksys tech's helped me to change my WRT54G's IP address so that it's in the same IP family as the Vonage router (192.168.15.x). Heck, last night I was able to connect briefly, but after losing my connection a couple hours later, I couldn't get back in after an hour's worth of retries.
DHCP is enabled on the Vonage router, but not on the WRT54G (presumably making it an access point rather than a router). The Linksys folks helped with that.

I've tweaked the voice quality at the Vonage site to reduce bandwidth, though that should have nothing to do with getting on the network, as no BW-hog applications are open. I do not have cross-over cables involved (someone in the office mentioned that, but I don't know what that is or it's purpose).

I'm nearing the end of my rope. I know the VPN worked prior to Vonage and the night time drives to the office are starting to exceed the cost savings of not having a conventional phone line.

I'm sure I'm missing some detail in all that text. Suggestions are very welcome - just understand that I'm pretty new to this networking stuff. Many thanks for your help/suggestions.
