VPN and Internet at the same time
Ever had the problem you wanted to use your VPN to work but still wanted to use the internet through your own network. With XP I knew you had to add a route to the routing table. So I tried that in Vista as well.
After an hour of destroying my internet connection and rebooting about 20 times I found out that it is actually really easy to set up in Vista.
Go to the "Connect to" window and choose your VPN connection. Go to the properties window for this connection and to the Networking tab. Then Open the Properties of the TCP/IPv4 protocol. Click the 'Advanced' button and uncheck the 'Use default gateway on the remote network'.
After that you still have to add a route to the routing table to get access to the remote network:
route add 192.168.0.0 mask 255.255.255.0 <ip of vpn gateway> if <interface for vpn>
And there you have it: VPN and Internet through your own network.
