VPN connection blocks home internet network

cisco-anyconnectcisco-vpn-clientinternet connectionvpn

Whenever I connect my office laptop(running Win 7) to VPN from home internet, i am unable to connect to internet/wifi-router from my home laptop (running on Win 10).

I searched and found links mentioning to disable the default gateway in TCP/IP settings of the VPN, but I didn't find any such setting in the settings (attached snapshot)

I am using Cisco Anyconnect Secure Mobility Client version 4.5.05030 to connect to VPN network

AnyConnect has an option (default) to run in full-tunnel mode, which routes all traffic (including local networks) over the VPN tunnel. This effectively disconnects you from the LAN (and other LAN clients) when the VPN client is active.
