Ive been trying desperately for days to setup a wireguard server/client using beryl routers. I believe the wireguard server is functioning properly. I downloaded the wireguard app on my phone and used the hotspot to connect to server, my ip shows my home ip and not verizons ip for the hotspot.
My issue is the client beryl will not connect to the vpn. Anything routed through the client uses the ip and network its plugged into. Additionally, I have the internet kill switch on. If traffic cannot be routed through the vpn shouldnt all connections be killed?
Ive tried everything, this is not my wheelhouse sadly. Forgive me if Im missing something small or basic.
Xfininity residential with dynamic ip. I enabled DDNS in the gui and pasted the new address into the clients settings. Set up port forwarding using Comcasts app.
Despite the client showing the green checkmark stating its connected to vpn when I connect using the client im showing the wrong ip address and location. Also, shouldnt the internet kill switch prevent this from happening? Do I have to configure the kill switch beyond clicking the toggle on the client and pressing apply?
I am setting up both a client and a server. The server is at home connected to my xfinity gateway via ethernet. I read somewhere I had to port forward from the gateway to the server beryl which is what I did.
I apologize if im not describing accurately, as stated in the original post I know very little about computing and networking. This is the extent of my knowlege from two days on reddit.
I figured the host/server was functioning just fine regardless of the forward due to the fact I can connect via the wireguard app on my phone. I just cannot get the client travel router to connect appropriately from my travel locations.
Two beryl travel routers, one at home connected to isp provided gateway. Second I take with me that im having issues with.
