vpn pass-through and security zone policy

I have recently purchased a Cisco 871W which works wonderfully better than my old Linksys which recently passed to dead electronics heaven.

So I just discovered that I cannot open remote VPN sessions to other (outside) endpoints. This would be a VPN session established from my PC (Cisco VPN Client 4.9) through the 871W to an outside endpoint. Actually I can open a session and login but no traffic will pass.

I'm sure this is coming down to a NAT issue or a zone security policy issue.

I setup the 871 using SDM and the Firewall wizard using the Low Security option. Nothing jazzy going on here. My network is and I'm Bridging the WLAN.

So here's the question... What do I need to do the allow VPN traffic to pass through the router? I would prefer to leave the zone security in place and learn it, but I have many clients that I VPN into for service.

Many thanks for suggestions.
