Internet access under VPN

Sometimes, when you are connected to VPN you suddenly loose access to Internet. Or you may notice, that suddenly you don't have access to some websites.
This is because when you're connected to another network, your computer is trying to use that network's internet access. And if this is company network, proxy servers may block certain websites, or your employer may log all your browsing history.
To change this, you need to change your computer's gateway. 

1. Open VPN connection, go to "Networking" and click "Properties"

2. Click "Advanced"

3. Uncheck "Use default gateway on remote network".

4. Reconnect.
Now you're using your local network to connect to Internet. To test it, just google "My IP" and see how your address changes.
