Nortel VPN disconnects my internet, any alternatives?

Specs: Windows 7
Hi all, I own my own business so networking isn't an issue. We are a business partner of a larger company that gives us a VPN access to connect to one website. It's the Nortel VPN so it's old but it's set to disconnect our Internet when we connect which is really inefficient. I understand why it does that but right now we use two computers, we have one as our main one then another sitting here just for VPN.

Does the Nortel VPN work system wide when it disconnects the Internet? Or is there a way to use Ethernet and Wifi and just have the VPN connect over Ethernet and just disconnect the Internet there but keep my local network on Wifi? Or is that not possible? I'm assuming it's not just wondering if there's any alternatives.

I have a VPN & I use it for the internet too. I boot my machine & connect to the VPN before I open the browser. Then when I open the browser, it uses the VPN to connect, to the net. That's only good for one machine at a time.

In your case, if the VPN is for one site only, it still shouldn't kill the other machine. I can still have internet on my other 3 machines at the same time.

This is the key phrase here. Contact this other company's IT department and ask them your questions. Since they provided the VPN, they're the ones who'll have all the info you need.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
