I more often than none connect to my clients VPN connections mosting using the WIndows method as on their end they are using RRAS.   My question, is that my internet at my home office is blazing fast, but when I connect to their VPN, it seems that my bandwidth is throttled from them.   Because of their policy on their Barracuda Web Filter, I cannot access certain sites either like forums, and blogs when connected so is there a way to set my NIC properties to use MY internet even when still VPN into them and just access their local ip's?

Absolutely there is - you need to configure split-tunneling on their vpn, if they'll let you.  Set up a new group that only you use (so you're not modifying their user experience), and enable split-tunneling.  With ST enabled, your local vpn client will only encrypt and send through the vpn tunnel the specific traffic you specify in the split-tunnel parameters (i.e., your subnet seeking their private subnet).  Everything else will go out to your default gateway; i.e., you'll be using your own internet connection.  --TX
