VPN on ZOOM X6 Modem, using AT&T communication Manager

I have a ZOOM X6 wireless modem/router.  I hook up a wireless laptop and the laptop sees the wifi.  However, when I try to use a VPN connection, the internet connection is severed.  Only when I turn off the VPN the connection comes back up.  Why can't I use a VPN connection?

All internet traffic is being routed through the vpn and the server your connected to is not setup for routing vpn traffic to the internet.

I am sorry that I don't understand the whole answer.  Does that mean that the server I am trying to connect to is not setup for routing VPN traffic or that my modem/router is not setup for VPN traffic?

I did not understand this solution.  So, I went out to my modem vendor, yet again.  I went through the help desk and I emailed my request for some help.  It was there that I recieved a response that solved the problem.  I recieved at firmware update.  I didn't actually think it would work, but it has.  I am up on the internet throught my desktop and am able to use VPN on my laptop without special configuration settings.  This is the way it should have been to start with.
