This could be the mainproblem when using TauVPN or some other frontend
for integrated WinXP IPSec.
For that setup to be supported you would need to use "aggressive mode"
for IPSec phase 1 connection. TauVPN does not support that and always
uses main mode. For dynamic IPs you need to use some other 3rd party
client like NCP Secure Entry which supports aggressive mode.
Otherwise you need to change the tunnel configuration on the main-side
everytime your DSL IP changes.

Maybe the router or your ISP blocks IPSec traffic? You should at least
see some racoon messages and UDP traffic on port 500.
For such a setup PPTP is the best option with m0n0wall at the moment.
