I had issues with vpn as well last week.  For me, I was able to connect 
to our vpn server EITHER from the meeting room (wireless) OR from my 
room (wired), but never from both places on the same day.  If wired 
worked, wireless was blocked. Or the reverse.  It was annoying. 
However, I would prefer to try getting those issues fixed rather than 
moving to  a more expensive place.  There is no assurance that Spring 
Hill would be better - I assume both places use the same back room provider.
