I'm stumped, VPN problem

I have a Cisco VPN client on my machine at home to connect to the office. It worked on this same machine at my old house/ISP.

I brought my work laptop home, same VPN client is loaded on it, and I am able to connect nad work with no problems.

The home PC connects to the VPN server and authenticates me, but then I have no access to anything on the internet. My ipconfig /all looks the same as my laptop does when it is connected. The default gateway is my router, the DNS servers are correct.

I can not ping anything, resolve any IP adresses, squat. I am not sure what else to look at. I even uninstalled VPN and downloaded it from our FTP server, connected again and same result.

Here is part of my ipconfig output

Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.101
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1

10.106.0.13

Secondary WINS Server . . . . . . : 10.106.136.40

You're saying you can't connect to anything on the INTERNET. So what are you trying to ping and resolve, known internet addresses? Or some machines on your company domain?

Assuming the problem is with internet only, give this a shot..

Open your IE browser (assuming that's what you're using) and go to Tools/Internet Options/Connections (tab)/LAN Settings and make sure it is either at the default settings, or a setting that works.

yeah, that all looks OK. I can not ping Yahoo, Microsoft, office IP's, the DNS servers it has listed, etc. I can only ping the default router and my address. I even disconnected the router and connected staright to the DSL modem, same results. The laptop does work thru the router, so I really do not think it is an issue.

I tried to change the VPN to use TCP instead of UDP, but can not connect to the VPN server (they said the port was what I set it too, but no connection was made). Tried the second VPN server and same result there too.

Well fuck me running, finally figured it out.

I go into Control Panel, Firewall Settings, and it is turned off ( I knew it was off, but just wanted to double check).

Well, I still thought some how shit was getting blocked, since I was able to connect and get the DNS servers from the VPN server. I go into My Network Places --> Properties, there are two icons under LAN or High Speed Internet. One is a 1394 connection, the other is Local Area Connection. I went into properties on both, then Advanced, Internet Settings and the fucken Windows Firewall was on for the Local Area Connection one. Turned it off and it fucken works!

Why the fuck does the control panel firewall not turn that fucker off there too? It looks like the 1394 adapter is what the control panel uses, strange as there are no packets sent/recieved on it.



Edit:
Googled what a 1394 adapter is, stupid firewire port. No wonder it has not been used, I have no firewire connections
