I need help setting up openvpn on my Lynksys wrt54gs v1.1 router. I've installed a vpn flavored DD-WRT firmware on my router. I've tried every setting I can think of and can't get my computer to talk to my router.

Here is my network setup:

ISP Verizon wireless over my HTC Thunderbolt smart phone.

Linksys wrt54gs v1.1 with DD-WRT v24-sp2 vpn (openVPN server)
*It's set up in client mode Wireless-->Basic Settings-->Wireless Mode-->Client
*Network Configuration-->Bridged (router is wirelessly bridged to my smartphone)

My computer (openvpn client1)
*Windows XP
*I've installed openVPN on this machine

I've tried several different config files to no avail. I've attached the static config files for your review. I've tried these config files but I couldn't get them to work.

First I want to use a static key as proof of concept. Then I want to be able to set up my own CA certificate authority and config files for multiple clients.
