Internet Connection Drops Once Connected To VPN

I have a Windows SBS2003 server set up and working ok and i can VPN into it ok and get a connection to network drives etc.  My problem is that when the VPN connection is dialed and established, the internet connection on the laptop drops for the laptop only.  I can still get through to the server via VPN but am unable to access the internet.  If i disconnect the VPN the internet works fine again.
I have tried unchecking the box saying "use default gateway on remote network" on the VPN settings but this then allows me to connect to the internet on the laptop but not any network drives/exchange on the server.

Any ideas on how to get it to connect to the server for internal DNS and the normal wireless/nic default gateway locally for anything else?
