I am experiencing the same problems using our CMAK profile (which runs
the same post-connect actions that yours does) on our Vista machines
(works fine on 2000/XP machines).
One difference is that I can now route to the internal resources (I'm
not sure if installing 930163 made the difference - it was installed
via WSUS and I can't remember if everything failed when I first
started looking at the problem, or whether it was just the Internet
resources that were inaccessible even before 930163).
Never the less, the gateway reversal still isn't working (the routing
table 0.0.0.0 entry indicates it should be working, but it isn't). I
have engaged MS product support, and we are actively working on a
solution. I'll post back here with whatever solution/workaround/dead-
end we ultimately come to.
