There are no known VPN issues with the WiFi Hub at all. However, I have asked one of TalkTalk's OCEs to pick your thread up and investigate it for you.
The forum is not real-time 24/7 support, so depending on how busy they are & how many are working at any one time, this can take 24 - 48 hrs (excluding weekends & limited cover on Bank Holidays). Alternatively, you can call the call centre or use online chat. The posts are responded to in time/date order, oldest first. So the fewer entries you make on your thread now, the sooner they will pick it up.
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:-
Personal Profile > Personal Information
Otherwise, TalkTalk will not be able to tie up your forum username to your broadband account. Only you & TalkTalk have visibility of your details.
I am not employed by TalkTalk, I'm just a customer. If my post has fixed the issue, please mark it as the Best Answer.

I'm sorry to hear this. You're currently on the latest version of firmware for this router. What happens when you try to connect? Do you receive any error messages? Does this affect wired and wireless?
Thanks for your message. When I try to connect, I get an "unable to contact VPN" message in Cisco AnyConnect after it times out. It affects both wired and wireless. I'm able to connect successfully to the VPN when connecting using a non-Talktalk public wifi connection in a cafe.
Thanks for confirming this. As Keith advised, we're not aware of any specific issues with the wifi hub and VPN. Was the previous laptop able to connect to VPN via the wifi hub ok?
Have you tried factory resetting the router and then resetting this up again?
This router and firmware version should work with VPN.
I can send a replacement router for testing to rule out any possible issues with your current router. Would you like me to arrange this?
That's fine - let's try a new router in case it helps. Is there anything else I can try before the new router arrives? It feels like the router isn't the issue, I was able to use the VPN on the old laptop successfully until right before I got the new laptop (I don't have the old laptop anymore, otherwise I would try it out).
