can't access internet after stopping the vpn connection RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    I'm running client 5.0.00.0340 on vista SP1 business on 2 PC's . I can connect to my work, no problem, but once I disconnect from my desktop I no longer have access to internet.  On my laptop I don't have this problem. Only difference between the 2 is that the laptop is WIFI, the desktop is Eternet.

    I have to reboot the desktop to get access to internet. Even a repair doesn't work.

    I did an ipconfig /all before connecting (I can thank Dale @ WUGNET  for that suggestion) , and after cutting the connection. After cutting the connection, I see the default gateway is empty. So that is the culprit.

    What can I do to correct this. While not a major problem , it is a  major pain.

    FYI : On the laptap, I keep access to internet but can not access anything on my local network until I close/re-open  the session. NBD, I can work with this.

    TIA
    PAtricia
