VPN doesn’t work aka how to clear ARP cache on the computer when you connect to the VPN

I noticed when connecting to the VPN in the office that sometimes internet on the local computer doesn’t work. So browser is dead but I can connect to all the resources in the company. I ended creating a small .bat file with this inside:

ipconfig /flushdns
netsh interface ip delete arpcache

Basically the bat file will flush my computer local DNS and arp cache as well. After I execute this everything is back to normal and I am able to browse the internet when I am connected to the company VPN.
