I work from home and connect to my office using Windows vpn.  I have found that all my internet traffic ends up routed through the vpn crippling performance.  How can I only have traffic relevant to my office go through the vpn and everything else go through my internet service provider?

I am running Windows 7 and Windows 8 clients connecting to a Windows 2008 Server server.

You need to setup routes so that your default route  points to your home router and that all of your work IP subnets point at your PC's IP address within the VPN.

This is assuming that the VPN tunnel terminates in your PC.

Make sure that your VPN client (on your PC I assume) does not have an option set to use the default gateway on the remote computer.  This is a default setting in Windows VPN, so yours may be set that way.  If it is, then it automatically routes all Internet traffic from your PC through the VPN connection and out the Internet gateway at the other end.  If you turn this option off, it should fix the problem.
