I can connect to VPN using openvpn but I can't get internet

Post by desbest » Fri May 18, 2018 9:01 am

I cannot ping google.com or bing.com while connected to my VPN or access any website. I can connect to my VPN, but I do not have internet access while connected.

Below is what I have tried
  • Disabling windows firewall and comodo firewall
  • Setup my DNS routing to Cloudflare 1.1.1.1 and Google Public DNS 8.8.8.8
  • Uninstalled my wireless driver then installed it again as administrator then uninstall openvpn client and install it again as administrator
  • Make the openvpn client run as administrator
  • Change the interface metric for my wifi adapter to 15 or 350

Code: Select all

netsh winsock reset
netsh winsock reset catalog
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
netsh int ip reset 
netsh int ip reset.log
netsh winsock reset catalog
How can I make my vpn connection have internet. I am using Windows 8.1 64 bit. The VPN connection works on my android phone. I am using OpenVPN for Windows version 2.4.6 l602
