PPTP VPN Not working

First Timer
Message 10 of 10

Good afternoon, my IT has confirm we have a PPTP VPN server at work and I'm unable to connect to work from home. I have called numerous times and no one has actually provided a solution that works and have been hang up the call a few times. 


So from reading this forum I either need an update of my firmware  like this person had 


Or like this other person I would need a new router as i have the exact same problem 


Router is - Sagemcom FAST5364 3.00


Please advise as this is getting urgent and fustrating knowing is a well knowed error with your routers and no one within the company seems to be able to help

Hi Cassie90


Thank you. I will need to make a change to your router firmware, when would be the best time to do this?


We advise to keep the router switched on without being rebooted whilst we update the FW. This should take no longer than 15 minutes to update.

This requires a manual change of firmware, that only TalkTalk can do via this forum.


I have asked one of TalkTalk's support to pick your thread up and investigate it for you.

They aim to respond within 48 hours (Monday - Friday) excluding Bank Holidays, but if more urgent you can always try the Service Centre on 0345 172 0088. The posts are responded to in time/date order, oldest first. Please try to avoid posting on here until TalkTalk has responded to you, otherwise, this will just put you further down the queue.

To save yourself time, please make sure that your community profile includes your first & last names, broadband phone number & if possible an alternative contact number. This can be done by clicking on your Avatar picture then click on "My Settings" followed by:-

I am not employed by TalkTalk, I'm just a customer. If my post has fixed the issue, please set Accept as Solution from the 3 dot menu.
