Could you post the config?

Check the config for "crypto isakmp nat-traversal".

Also, to ping the inside interface you need to add "management-access inside".

I had the same problem on an IOS router (871). My solution was one of two things. I downloaded the most up-to-date version of the VPN client ( as opposed to the version I had or it was a software firewall (Norton 360). I have two different computers. One works just fine...the other connects but no traffic passes through. Here is what I have:

Computer 1 (working)- VPN Client v5.0.02.0090 and Network Associates Enterprise VirusScan.

Computer 2 (not working) - VPN Client v5.0.00.0340 and Norton 360.

I highly doubt it is the VPN Client, but sometimes you never know. Check your software firewall and try disabling it. Let me know how this works.
