Need help setting up VPN with WRV54G

    I have an office that has a T1 line coming in to a propriatry router. Inside the office I have a Linksys BEFSX41 that acts as the DHCP server(WAN port connected to T1 providers router). Most of the computers are connected to 16port hubs. I'd like to add a new router to the mix, which is a Linksys WRV54G for VPN (I have a static address for both internal routers)

    Here's what I tried:

    T1 router (gateway address -
    BEFSX41 has an external address ( Internal

    Connected WRV54G (in router mode) to hub (1 cable to LAN, 1 cable to WAN)
    LAN address WAN address
    DHCP is OFF

    Problem: I can't ping the address from anywhere!
    I can get to the WRV54G setup page, though.

    What I want to do is leave the BEFSX41 the way it is and have the WRV54G allow VPN from the outside.

    Is this connected correctly?
