VPN Over Vonage Router

I have a Linksys RT31P2 router for my Vonage VOIP
connection. Everything else works fine, but I cannot establish a
vanilla Microsoft VPN connection thru it. Topology is my computer to
Linksys to cable modem thru internet to VPN server. I could easily
establish a connection with my previous router (DLINK DI-624) where
the Linksys is now.

Now, however, I get hung at the "verifying username and password"
prompt. Googling this says the likely culprit is that PPTP passthru
is not enabled in the router; however, this router gives such an
option in its menus and it is enabled.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
