VPN connection issue

Hi,

I have been unable to connect to my work VPN using the built-in Windows 10/11 VPN client. I have verified that I can connect to my work VPN when I try it via Vodafone fibre and Virgin. It's only the TalkTalk connection I have at home which does not successfully connect. I see multiple forum posts regarding the same issue, and it looks like it's a problem with the firmware/router (which was solved by replacing the router with a Huawei one.)
Could someone please help me with this issue?

I have updated my community profile with my details (please contact me on the alternate phone number provided).

 

Router details -- 

TalkTalk Wi-Fi Hub
version SG4K100136

 

Thanks

Hi Debbie, I'm experiencing the exact same problem with my VPN. I have just got back from Maternity leave when beforehand I could work from home but now I cannot access my work VPN but I can from other providers like Virgin. I have logged this with my IT team who said its a Talk Talk issue. Could you help me please.

Hi vh_gb

 

Apologies for this.

 

I've made a change to your router firmware, please can you retest?

Hi @vh_gb,

 

You shouldn't need a new router, the support team here should be able to change the firmware version on your existing router to resolve this issue. They will hopefully be able to reply tomorrow to help further (they won't phone you, they will reply here)
