    Hi,

    I use a Lenovo laptop that runs windows 10. recently downloaded a VPN while abroad so that I could have access to UK content. After doing this my laptop could only connect to the internet if I was connected to the VPN, otherwise I could connect to my normal WiFi network but it would say there was no internet connection. I tried to change this and in doing so deleted the VPN application. Now I cannot connect to the internet at all despite being able to connect to the WiFi network. When I tried troubleshooting the problem it said it may be something to do with firewalls and privacy settings but I have tried reverting the firewall settings to default and disabling the firewall altogether and this doesn’t seem to solve the problem.

    Sounds like it was a Software VPN. What was the name of it?

    The name of the VPN is PrivateVPN.
