    So I've tried to set up a PPTP connection for browsing through that. It works fine upon initial connection but after a seemingly random amount of minutes it stops working and goes from "Internet access" to "No network access" (still connected to the VPN server).

    My wireless connection has "Internet access" the entire time, but when the VPN goes to no network, the computer can't connect to anything besides the vpn server. As soon as I disconnect the VPN my computer can connect to webpages again.

    The VPN works fine on other devices. So I expect it to be a problem with the win 7 setup as I've tried several VPN services and they all fail.

    (The PPTP connection settings has been verified by support staff, but they gave up and said it was a windows problem)

    So I hope I'm overlooking something really simple, but any guesses as to what might be the problem are appreciated!
