Windows 7 No Internet but VPN connects and works

Dear Experts,

A strange problem - I have win 7 pro on a laptop connected via LAN in the hotel and internet does not work - but works on my other laptop. Strangely I can connect my work VPN and even browse the work network and use e-mails in outlook. I thought it a virus but sophos comes up clean and nothing suspicious in task manager that I can see. Also I checked IE connection settings for proxy

Please help

Does the Win7 machine have a valid DNS server?

DNS settings are set to auto - just tried with VPN off and internet works - it always worked with vpn on until yesterday :-S

So...the problem is you can't get to the Internet when you're connected via VPN to your office network?  Do you have the "Use gateway on remote network" checkbox checked in the IP properties of the VPN connection?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when you logon to your vpn you get the little computers on the taskbar, you can logon to computer and browse its folders but when you go to internet you cannot surf.

Go start - Run, and type CMD, then type NSLOOKUP, see if the server displayed is the same as the DNS from your office. If not, just check the IP you got from the DHCP and just change the DNS ip address to the same as your office's.

Let me know your outcome.

Rgds.
