Did you notice anything in the logs? Can users access machines on
their LAN and the DSL router itself? Can they ping the Openswan
server? Is the wireless network bridged or does it have a separate
subnet? Is there a firewall on the DSL router that is blocking things?

Perhaps you could try to get hold of the same DSL router and recreate
the setup.
