    When VPN Connects, WiFi Disconnects

    Thank you for taking a look at my thread..

    This has never been an issue that I am aware of.... but... when I connect my VPN my wifi seems to disconnect. When I disconnect VPN the Wifi resumes. My settings haven't changed and its always been fine.

    Now I see that if I enter my VPN's adapter properties and uncheck 'use default gateway on remote network' this allows me to connect VPN and maintain Wifi connection. There is a problem however, when I test my current IP address it does not reflect a VPN connection, I know its connected but seems unchecking that box does something that makes my actual IP show.

    Thanks for your help!

    I tried powering down my modem and router for 10 minutes and this seems to have solved the issue.
