How to Configure VPN in Linksys?

I am configuring one of the servers as a VPN server as per Microsoft Tech net's "how to". The server is multi-homed with two NIC cards. I selected the NIC that I have designated for VPN use during the Routing and Remote Access setup wizard. After the wizard completed, the server became completely disconnected from the network. Although both NIC card status indicates "connected", I am unable to ping the server either by computer name or IP address, and it won't connect to the internet.
