Using your local internet while being connected to a VPN
Using a VPN with the default settings can slow down your internet speed, so you can change the setting to allow your web traffic to be routed through your local internet instead of the VPN. To do this from your desktop screen, click on the Network icon which can be found at the bottom right hand corner of your screen and click on Network Settings.
Now click on Network adapter options on the right side of the window.
Here you will see your saved network and VPN connections. Right Click on the VPN you would like to change the settings on, and select Properties.
Next click on the Networking tab.
From the Networking tab highlight the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) line, then click Properties.
Next you will click Advanced.
Then you will un-check the checkbox for Use default gateway on remote network, then click OK and proceed to close out each window.
Need to change something?
If you entered the wrong username and password or you want to change the server name, just select the VPN connection again and click on Advanced Option.
Now click on Edit to update your credentials, server name or the VPN settings.
