I suspect the problem occurs with Windows-based systems.


No problems on my Win 10 PC. I've been using a VPN to connect to work for many years, for as long as I've had the T3200M.

My VPN is connecting fine through the T3200M. Computers and phones can all connect to the VPN I use.

 

@Linux-Is-Ransomware-Free which VPN do you use?

Only the best - ProtonVPN

 

Where I can use passwords 100+ (base 94) characters in length (which, for mine, I change weekly) and have the option of single or dual-layer global servers through which to connect.

 

Check them out and see how their dual-layer servers exponentially secure one's connection.

Also, I don't set mine up in the gateway - that exposes my VPN settings to prying Telus (admin) eyes - instead, I set mine up per device, which creates encryption from end-to-end - that way, there's no possibility of MITM. Like I said, I change my PW (and username) weekly, it's hard to hit a moving target.

Nope, I gave up. It seems like a lost cause to get Telus to resolve anything unless their entire customer base is complaining about it.

I ended up getting Google WiFi and relegating the Telus equipment to TV only. One thing I'm quite amazed with is how much faster and responsive my internet is now that I'm not using Telus's crumby equipment.
