Are you using Telecom, Vodafone or 2degrees as your 3G connection?

Or WiFi?

If you're using Telecom 3G - change your APN to Something about the last iOS update changed this, or maybe it was their carrier pack, I don't recall, but changing the APN resolved it for me on iPhone and iPad when trying to use Cisco VPN.

I'm using Telecom 3G when out and about and wifi at home. My company uses Cisco software on our laptops.

Yeah I reckon it'll be your APN setting. Unless it also doesn't work on WiFi....?
