VPN blocks access to Wi-Fi

I can get on internet only when VPN is off when at home.  However on same Lenovo laptop, I can use VPN when online at a 2nd home.  This began after a Lenovo update was accessed.  It appears to be a problem with the DNS but I have no idea how to address the issue.  

I use Comporium at 2nd home and Comcast at regular house..  Any suggestions of where to start?

I'm having the same issue.  I also use Comcast.  I did find that I am able to connect to VPN when I change to another country,  but connecting throught the US will not work.
