Windows 7: Very strange VPN disconnects

Very strange VPN disconnects

I have 2 VPN providers. The first is fine but the second always disconnects after a 1-25 minutes I start playing 2D/3D games, flash games or watching video. At first I thought it was just a coincidence but after a month of using second VPN I can absolutely definitely say it's not concidence. I have reinstalled system 2 times and tried differnet drivers. Nothing helped. Also I had dual boot w7+ubuntu and on ubuntu all was perfect.

The most strange thing is first VPN works fine. I can't even imagine how games and video can disconnect second VPN.

VPN connections have same settings except login/password.

My PC: Windows 7 RC 32-bit, GeForce 7600GT, core2duo 6300, audigy 2, ethernet adapter: D-link DFE 520.

Also looks like I'm not alone: internet disconnects while gaming

And sorry for my horrible english.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

The link below shows how to make adjustments to fix some of the dropped connection problems although I'm not sure if it directly relates to VPN or not. It's an ongoing problem with few resolutions. This link is about the only thing I can find on this subject so I hope it helps.

VPN disconnects INTERNET
Hi, I am using CISCO Anyconnect. But regardless of what VPN, what happens is that connecting to VPN disconnects me from Internet which doesnot happen with XP. Is there a solution for this with anyone, please.
