using net extender(VPN Client) and connecting to the VPN. After I connect I am able to access the remote site.

 If I need to look something up and try to use any browser I am NOT able to go to any web sites including my google mail.
I have to disconnect VPN go look up what I need to do and then reconnect to VPN and ......

I have a windows 8.1 laptop
