VPN Client tunnel problem when using static DHCP

    Here is my configuration:

    WRT54G 2.0 (DD-WRT 3.2 pre) Gateway router, DHCP server
    WRT54G 2.2 (DD-WRT 3.2 pre) WDS Node

    Laptop (XP Pro, SP2) Cisco VPN client

    When I reserve the address for my laptop on the router, all works fine until I establesh my first VPN session from the PC. Tunnel is normal all access is normal. I have split tunneling capability (from work) so I can 'see' my local network (share drives, files, printers) but all other traffic (web, mail, etc) is forced through the tunnel.

    If I drop the tunnel and then re-establish it, only some connections split coorectly. I can ping addresses on my work network but not names. I can VNC to my desktop (at work) but cannot access a web server vie IE.

    If I drop the tunnel and reboot the PC and both routers, the tunnel works fine. If I turn off the DHCP reservation and assign a 'normal' static IP on my local LAN to the laptop, all works fine.

    Any ideas??
