Most often the cause of this is the local network uses the same subnet as the remote, i.e. both use something like 192.168.1.x.  They must be different for routing to take place.  The symptoms are exactly as you describe.

Also, what VPN client did you use in Windows 7 and what VPN client are you using in Windows 8?  Some VPN clients are not yet Windows 8 compatible.

Try using NCP Secure Entry. I use this on Windows 7 64-bit and it is supposed to work in Windows 8. It comes with a 30 day trial so it is worth a try.
