I am a new TalkTalk customer and I am having VPN connection problems with the D-Link 3782. This would be extremely bad for me, I need it for working from home. I see older posts from people with similar problems, will I require a replacement router also? I did try changing the DNS of the router, but it didn't help.
The current firmware is the issue here with the 3782 and in most cases replacing it with a VPN capable router is the way forward. I will ask one of TalkTalk's OCEs to pick your thread up and deal with 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 & 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:-

I can confirm the new (old?) router allows me to use VPNs with no problems. Thanks for getting this sorted out so quickly!
Hope I am posting in the correct way as totally new to this!!
I too have a D Link DSL3782 router. Recently started a new job and need to work from home. IT support is only via phone and I really struggle with tech stuff. Issue I am having is that when I log onto work vpn from home my home connection gets thrown out. As soon as I disconnect from work server, back comes my home connection.
Have read other threads and people talking about the same issue and have been issued a Huawei router from Talk Talk.
Please help as finding really stressful.
Many thanks in advance.

Hi, I have recently changed job and need to access my work VPN. I have the DSL-3782 router and reading here seems that this is the problem. Can you let me know what I need to do to try to resolve the problem so that I can get access to my VPN?
Thanks so much if you can help.
I have the same problem, I need to be able to use the VPN connection with my router.
Can you please send me a new router as well?
