On my Windows 8.1 desktop at home I connect to a remote desktop outside my home network only to perform the tasks on the remote machine that are not network related (creating/updating/reading files etc). But at the same time when I browse the internet on my home desktop it seems the internet connection of the remote desktop is used since when I hover over the internet connection of my home desktop it reads "No internet access". But if I disconnect the remote desktop connection and hover over the internet connection of my home desktop it reads "Internet access". How can I make only my home internet connection to be used when I am browsing the internet on my home desktop while still connected to a remote desktop.
