    What VPN client are you using?

    no you cant use VPN and internet at the same time to my knowledge.

    I think this is because internet uses TCP/IP and VPN uses L2TP, PPTP, IPSec (possibly) and/or other protocols that dont work in time with TCP/IP.

    Yes, you can use the internet & VPN at the same time, I do it at home all the time.

    VPN cannot occur without internet whether dialup or highspeed etc.. sounds lke a problem with the VPN client s/w.. have you checked out the FAQ of the VPN mfg?

    I also use VPN and internet all the time - although there can be problems (the VPN I use is very secure with Raptor firewall and I can get proxy password prompts I do not want). Basically your VPN is tunnelling through your internet - I think I might guess the problem.... here is a screen shot I took of the box to uncheck FOR YOUR VPN connection ONLY - see if it helps (hope so)


    PS hope the pic shows up OK too! ;)
