Not sure if I'm posting in the right place, feel free to advise if not.
VPN stopped working overnight - it's working with mobile data but not with WiFi, doesn't matter the device I'm trying to use to connect (tried Android, macOS, Windows). I'm using NordVPN.
TalkTalk Service Centre says "It looks like your router software needs updating." I'm unable to update from my end. Would it be possible to deploy this update from your end?
If this doesn't fix the issue, I'll have to change the internet provider as this VPN is used for business reasons and I can't have these problems happening.

Hi Marta Megre
I'm glad to hear that your VPN is now working ok.
This firmware is not the latest version but this version resolves the VPN issue at the moment, this is why you are seeing this message in Service Centre.

Thanks for taking interest in the case.
Our router rebooted itself around an hour ago, probably when the update was deployed.
However, the service centre is still showing an "It looks like your router software needs updating" message. I've attached to this message a screenshot that was just taken.
The VPN on the other hand is now able to connect to servers normally, which I believe was thanks to your intervention, so thank you very much for your help!

If you have the Sagemcom Wi-Fi Hub then it is likely that it has just done a firmware update overnight, and that is what is causing the problem. The support team here will be back on Tuesday and will be able to make some changes to your router settings to fix the issue.

What I need is for my VPN to not be blocked by my Internet provider. Not that it is of your concern, but for clarification purposes, I need a VPN to work remotely for my company, and that's what I meant by "business reasons". Thanks for the link to the article.

If you need business levels of support, TT Home Broadband is not for you and actually precludes business use unless agreed in writing.

No need for that tone - the other two posts were created by mistake, as a result of a lack of clarity around how to navigate this platform, as well as the difficulty in being able to find any contact details for support. I should say it's good an issue like this happened outside of working days, otherwise, I'd have gone straight to changing internet provider. Thank you for your interest and reply.

Your other two post have been tagged as duplicates to the mods.
Please wait for a reply HERE, there may be limited support until Tuesday due to the bank holiday, be patient and please DO NOT keep opening more topics on the same issue.
