    I didn't realize this was happening, it kind of defeats the purpose of being behind a vpn.

    I'm using Shibby's Tomato and the OpenVPN client is checked to start on WAN.

    I also have the following script in my firewall section, when my VPN connection is down, as if I pressed stop by mistake, it will stop any Internet access, only way to get out is if VPN is up.

    iptables -I FORWARD -i br0 -o tun0 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -I FORWARD -i tun0 -o br0 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -I FORWARD -i br0 -o vlan2 -j DROP
    iptables -I INPUT -i tun0 -j REJECT
    iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o tun0 -j MASQUERADE
