When you connect to your workplace's VPN, you may not notice that you are using your workplace's servers to serve up webpages.  This might be undesirable since the workplace can log all the places you've been.  It also might be very slow to load pages because you are using your workplace server to send pages to you.  

Here is the fix.  

Open your VPN Connection
Click on the Networking Tab

Click on TCP/IP
Click on Advanced

Uncheck Use Default Gateway on Remote Network.
