I have to connect my office network using VPN for accessing office data. My office is located in US and I'm in India. Since VPN connection routes my entire data traffic through my US office, once I connect to VPN, I find tremendous slow down in internet access (yahoo, google etc..). But without VPN connection, the internet access is pretty good. I'm trying to find a way with which I can access internet through a second network card and accessing VPN through first network card. Do any of you think this will work? Could you give details on how to make it working?

Info: I use Windows 7 PC. I can add one more ethernet card to PC in order to do this.

1. You can configure one browser's traffic via VPN, other programs are surfing via your local internet connection. Tutorial link: http://goo.gl/rx4d6M.
2. If your VPN has the customize route table feature, I think you can create specific route table for your US office. Tutorial link: http://goo.gl/eiuIJE.
Hope this can help you out. :bounce:

you can make your network connectivity flow over a vpn only for specific routes by simply not allowing the vpn to set a default route, and then setting up a route(s) for the internal corporate network to flow through the vpn device, no second network card required.
beware however, this type of "split network" setup is often specifically forbidden by IT policy and might result in trouble for you, because it can allow uncontrolled traffic to be routed into their network.


Could you please more specific how I can configure split tunneling? For now I mainly want my team-viewer application to take normal internet route and all other can take VPN route.

Thanks man. This link is the exact one I am searching for.

Also this youtube video helped me to do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=La4YX-8BnAo

I don't have any cisco or specific application to connect to VPN. I use a VPN dial up in Windows Networks control panel. After unchecking the one explained in the video/article, I could browse very faster though I'm in VPN. :) 

Thanks,
Ajay.
