Are you sure, you never use vpn to connect to an isp, you use vpn when you have a connection to an isp and want to make a secure connection to another location on the internet.

its a wireless connection going into a hub. The other computer that uses the connection was set up with the isp techs and they made a vpn. does that make sense?

Sorry no, ask your isp for an installation manual.

My compliments on getting your wireles network in working order

Could you post the output if
ifconfig
route -n
cat /etc/resolv.conf
