It seems I cannot connect to my company VPN through my router. I have found various posts talking about this: talktalk says it should work, multiple sources say it doesn't. I considered changing MTU settings but these do not seem to be available through the current gui. I've tried reporting to talktalk through Chat function, but every time they tell me to try connecting to the VPN it disconnects the chat and I have to start again - it's too painful. I can generally get by without VPN (we have a Citrix BCP too) but every 90 days I have to reset my password and experience this pain all over again. WFH is for the forseeable, so please what can I do??

Thanks for updating your Community Profile and for the additional information.
Could I just check, have you tried factory resetting the router using the pin hole reset for ten seconds and then connecting to VPN?
If you have already tested this then please let me know and I can send a different make and model of router for testing.

Thanks for your advice. To answer your questions:
It has never properly worked - there was a tiny period of respite where it seemed ok and then went again.
VPN software is Pulse Secure (smartxs), version 9.1.11
Details are updated, so hopefully TalkTalk can help. Thanks.

If you browse to http://192.168.1.1/ and look towards the bottom of the login screen, what 'version' of firmware does it show (it will say something like SG4K10002816t), a new version of firmware is rolling out at the moment, and some customers have experienced VPN issues with the new version.
Has the VPN only recently stopped working with this router, or has it never worked with this router ?
Have you checked the tips here, particularly the Homesafe settings.
What VPN software are you trying to use ?
For one of the TalkTalk staff on this community to be able to look into this you will need to update your community profile to include your name, landline telephone number that your TalkTalk service is provided on & an alternative contact number. This will allow them to identify you, and they will then be able to help.
Don't post any personal details in this thread, just add them to your community profile.
Then they will hopefully be able to respond to this post tomorrow.
