VPN: Why do my windows vpn clients use the remote broadband provider?

Please explain why in windows workgroup settings, my windows configured  vpn clients  use the remote broadband connection even when:
i configured the vpn clients to use their own internet connection. this strangles the bandwidth at the tunnel.

my clients different speeds based on their broadband provider speed.
1) first client: 5u 30d   =  7 times faster at the tunnel
2) second client: 1-1.8u 3-12d = 7 times slower

behind  the authenticating vpn router server: my shared folder to be accessed via vpn: windows 7 shared folder:
5u 30d
all the while using the remote vpn connection as shown when speed is checked.

Hey!

What kind of router is the VPN "host"?
