Ok all, After the prompting by you folks, I started poking around those deep dialogue boxes, and behold, I found it! Following this map, you'll see what I mean: 1) VPN Connection Properties Dialogue 2) Click the 'Networking' Tab 3) Click on 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)' and then the 'Properties' button. 4) Click on the Advanced Tab. 5) Under the 'General' Tab, there is a single check box that states: 'Use default gateway on remote network' 6) Unchecking this box allows your current internet connection to work again! Thanks for all your help!
