Hi Everyone,
  I am trying to connect to my work VPN from home and here is my problem. I am able to establish the VPN connectiion with no problem. Once it is connected, my internet stops working on my computer and also i am unable to ping any of work servers. So, both the VPN and the LAN quits working after the VPN connection is made.

I am connected to a Linksys router that assigns me a dynamic IP such as Once the VPN is connected I am getting a as my ip for my VPN adapter.

I am using VPN client version 4.0.5 on a windows XP pro. Dell laptop that has an inbuilt broadcom NIC.
If I check the statistics on my VPN client it shows Local LAN is disabled. Also, under the Transport tab on VPN connection settings nothing is checked - I know for sure that nothing needs to be checked because it works with the same setting for other people in the office while they connect from home. Finally, it is a Group Authentication that we use.  Oh, I have also tried disabling all the firewalls on my laptop.

So, above are my current settings and the problem that i am facing with.  I would really apprreciate it if anyone can help with this problem.... thanks a lot in advance.
