I travel internationally for work and often need to be conferenced in for long phone meetings. To use my US Google Voice number, I have had a VPN up and running on my Windows 8 computer to dial US phone numbers from my Gmail/Google Voice. Yesterday, I set up the same VPN connection for my wife who uses Windows 7. The set up is exactly the same but computer's behavior seems to be different. Win 7 machine loses any internet connectivity after connected to VPN. Then, when the 'use default gateway on remote network' for the VPN connection is unchecked, Internet works, VPN connection appears to be established BUT it shows as 'no network access' and Google Voice won't dial (it only works if it renders your IP as being in US).
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance, mates
