Windows 7 VPN stops web browser

I've just installed Windows 7 RTM and setup Windows VPN to work office. It all works fine except, when the VPN is connected, regular web access stops working eg: local web browser can't connect to anything. Disconnect VPN and web works again.

"I solved this by:

Opening properties for the VPN connection
Clicking the networking tab
Selecting Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and clicking properties
Click advanced button
On the IP Settings tab, turned off Use Default Gateway on Remote Network.
On the WINS tab, entered the IP addresses of our WINS servers in the office.

Works perfectly now."

"You need to stop using your work VPN as a default gateway.

In the system tray, click on your network icon, right-click on your VPN connection, and choose ""Properties"".

Go to the networking tab.
Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
Click the ""Advanced"" button in the properties window
Uncheck the ""Use default gateway on remote network"" box
Click OK, OK, OK

That should fix your problem!"
