    if you say you can connect via VPN to your work.

    maybe your company have aplied some rules on your laptop that if you are outside of the local net you can not surf the net only connect via vpn.
    secure remote client have this option

    and i would check if the access point you are connecting allows to surf the web
    and i would check spyware on the system
    and check your host file

    at work can you surf wifi?

          check your proxy settings. control panel, internet options, communications, lan settings. if your work uses a proxy server which alot do, then when you have that set you wont be able to get online outside of work. if you do have that uncheck the use proxy box and try again.

            Do you have an account that enables you to "surf the net" when connected to a hotspot? I think you will find it is not FREE.
