by TerryMiller edited by SYNACK What this does is enable a feature commonly known as Split Tunneling. This allows normal internet traffic, such as browsing the web or listening to a music/radio stream from your favorite station, to continue to use your internet connection, rather than the connection of the VPN. A note of caution though: Some IT departments do not want you to enable split tunneling, as it can decrease the security of the VPN to a certain degree, but that subject is out of the scope of this article. Please check with your IT Department before enabling Split Tunneling in a company environment.

- Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click on Properties.
- Click on Advanced
- Uncheck the box that says "Use Default Gateway on remote Network" (defaults to checked in XP)

- thanx, it helped me very much. when I started SBS VPN, connection speed slowed down from 5Mbit to 350 Kbit. Now its OK.
