And the 'tg3' driver doesn't work any better under FC 2 than it did 
under FC 1 (at least for me).

So I had to redownload and recompile the Broadcom driver (bcm5700) for 
my system.

The symptoms with the tg3 driver are similar to having a mismatched MTU 
value.  You can connect the VPN, but then can't actually access anything 
useful, like email or web pages greater than a certain minimal size.
