     Probably.  Soren's specs for the 4521 is "14W max", which is, I
assume, just for the 4521 (i.e., without the vpn1211).  Your power
supply is rated 12W (assuming a regulated 12V, and yours may not be),
and that (probably) does not take into account any power taken by the
vpn1211 and any PCMCIA cards.
