    VPN issues


    Hi, I think this has been addressed before but can't find answers. My wifi stopped working. I keep getting this: the remote connection was not made because the name of the remote access server did not resolve. I checked drivers, it's on pptp, I've reset in admin mode...still nothing. Very frustrated. Any ideas. Thank you.

    This implies a DNS lookup failure.

    Run ipconfig /all and look at the current DNS setting.

    Welcome to the forum. Set your DNS to 208.67.220.220 & 208.67.222.222 your DNS isn't resolving domain names

    Ok I set the DNS to 208.67.220.220 and 67.222.222. Nothing still. I ran the ipconfig/all. This is what it told me:
    Primary DNS suffix...:
    Node type....:Hybrid
    Ip Routing Enabled....No
    WINS Proxy Enabled....No
    Not sure what to do next.
    Thank you

    Is that all that comes up with 'ipconfig /all' ? It should have a lot more.

    Tell us more about your setup:

    Type of computer and how old
    Did it have a clean install of Windows 10, or was it an upgrade
    Network card (wifi or ethernet cable or USB or?)
    What kind of router
    What kind of ISP
    How does the VPN play into this
    Was it working well before
