my VPN connection to work has stopped working and I am getting a message “A connection to the remote computer could not be established, so the port used for this connection was closed”. It was working fine until yesterday and hasn’t worked since. I am able to connect using other networks so guess this must be to do with my router. I have had the router a couple of years and all has been fine.
Please can you help as I need to be able to work from home and can’t at present.

The new router arrived and allowed the VPN to work. I will check again tomorrow when I am next working from home but looks like this could be the problem solved. If it all works tomorrow then I will get the other routers returned. Many thanks for your swift response and help in resolving this issue.

No sorry, it's related to the current FW already on the new router.
The Huawei hub is on its way and you should receive this within the next 24-48hrs.
Please let us know how you get on.

the new router arrived and was another Sagemcom. I fired this up but this wouldn’t allow the VPN to connect. I have reconnected my old router as before and this still allows me to connect over the VPN. Whatever you did to the firmware seems to have done the trick for now thanks. However as the new router doesn’t work for the VPN shall I send this back?

the changes that you have made now allow me to connect on the VPN.
I will let you know which router arrives and whether it is worth swapping (my current one does have a dodgy stand so may want to swap anyway)

Hi Debbie, I am not particularly IT literate so I am not what you mean by latest DNS fixes or how you change the firmware. I am not home today so won’t know if any changes will have worked until this evening, but yes you can try if you think it will solve the problem.

I can see that a router has been ordered but it's not showing yet which make and model it was.
We can try a change to the firmware but this wont have the DNS fixes in, would you like me to try this?

Even if they did send another Sagemcom, it probably won't have that version of firmware on it, and with any luck the issue with this new version of firmware might be resolved before your new router tried to upgrade to that version again.

They didn’t ask which router I had. I would hope that they would know not to send another Sagemcom but I guess when an advisor picks this thread up tomorrow they should be able to see which router has been sent?
