Please help! Starting today I couldn't connect to my work's PPTP VPN and have seen other posts were it looks like they need new routers. I have to work from home and my IT support says it is nothing on their end and is an issue with the TalkTalk router. I called TalkTalk and they sent me a link for using a router and VPNs it did nothing but direct me to factory reset. This has all been done and nothing is working. I have broadband and the VPN did not work through WIFI or Ethernet connection.

Ok, that is the most common combination that seems to cause problems (firmware SG4K100130 and Windows 10 VPN). Best to just let the staff pick this up tomorrow, they will be able to help.

Ok, that version is brand new firmware for that model of router. I did think the rollout of that firmware was on hold, but maybe it has started rolling out again. Several customers have had issues with VPN access after their router upgraded to that version.
I was just wondering if you ran any specific VPN software on your computer to let you connect to work, or if you are maybe just using the built in Windows VPN. Customers who just use the built in Windows 10 VPN seem to often be affected by VPN issues with this new firmware.
But anyway, the staff here will be able to pick this up tomorrow, if they believe your problem has been caused by your router upgrading to the new firmware then they may just suggest that they send you a new router of a different make.

The version number is SG4K100130. I'm not sure what you mean by VPN software. If you need information about the VPN, I will have to contact my company's IT service desk.

If you browse to the router login screen (http://192.168.1.1/), what 'version' number does it show near the bottom of the screen (it will start with SG4K).
Also, what VPN software are you using ?
The TalkTalk staff on this community will be able to help, they will hopefully be able to respond to this post tomorrow.
