An update on a thread that was left hanging for a while:
After many hours asking many questions - it looks as though the wireless card
drivers were corrupted on the laptop which was having so many problems -
reinstalling a fresh download of drivers solved the problem - it was not the
VPN setup - which is a relief - but Outlook sure can get cranky when it's
trying to make a connection and hardware is failing!
I do appreciate all the things you shared while trying to figure it all out!

        Hi Vicki,
        Are you using an ISA firewall? I routinely need to connect to my
Exchange Server using VPN and the full Outlook MAPI client works a treat with
the ISA firewall. However, when I don't have VPN access, I find that
configuring the ISA firewall to support secure RPC over HTTP connections
works very good too!

        Have you checked the Network connection? Can you get to other network
Services, it could be as simple as a bad patch cable or port on the switch
going bad.

        Has anybody seen an error like this and have any idea what might be
going on with a Win XP machine trying to connect to the Exchange Server and
getting this response?

        Outlook keeps blinking in the tray, below, "requesting information"
from server 

        Task 'Microsoft Exchange Server - Sending' reported error
(0x80040115) : 'The operation could not be completed because you are working
offline or because of an error on the network. Try to connect to the network
again, and then repeat the operation.'
