Are you using the router to directly connect to the VPN, or are you connecting via your PC?

Can you test another device after your PC disconnects from the VPN? Like your phone or something?

Default Re: router freaks out after disconnecting from vpn

The way you worded it at first you made it sound like you thought it was the router. I wanted to confirm with a different device whether it was or not.

ok so everything else seems to work
after i disconnected yesterday it does not work without vpn
i restarted the pc tried 2.4 and 5g wifi
5g connects only to few pages
2.4 says limited connectivity
troubleshooter says its connected to the router but cant reach webpage..
not connected to the internet

i connect through vpn and everything works again

i dont know if its messing with my settings or something else

Does it add a tunnel adapter in your ethernet settings? Try disabling that after turning off VPN.

apparently its a kill switch which makes no sense
when I click disconnect with kill switch enabled it blocks all traffic
but this means I have to manually turn it off every time I disconnect from vpn

but now the update broke my webcam again .. this **** is never ending lol
I'm so tired of windows
20 years later they still cant make an update that doesn't break something...
I just fixed it like 6 months ago from previous update and forgot what the problem was unfortunately
