GL-AR750S-Ext VPN Policies work but kill internet

I am using a new GL-AR750S-Ext and NordVPN. If I disable the VPN, everything works great. If I enable the VPN, everything works great. If I add a single policy (mac or ip based) the policy works, and that traffic is routed over the VPN, but all of the other devices on my network essentially become unusable. Websites will start to load and never finish. If I run a speed test, it looks like it starts fine, but then freezes and pops up a socket error message.

The whole purpose of this purchase was to route 3 televisions only through a VPN, and I am either missing something, or something is broken. I tried both the latest stable firmware and the test firmware with the same results. Any ideas?

Can you give an example of which website has problems? I can test the same.

I have the same experience. Policy just sends private subnet 192.168.80.0/24 over the VPN, but some other connectivity either stops or slows down immensely to unusable.

Firmware 3.100.
OpenVPN.
Only allow the following to use the VPN: 192.168.80.0/24

Routing is working correctly. If I traceroute from any of the Slate’s clients, they go through the correct routes. Ping times are also correct.

Issue: Google web pages will not load (drive/keep/gmail/maps etc). Speedtest.net does not run or produces erroneous results. Other sites do load completely normally. Strangely, a direct link to a Google Doc will load. Some pages only partially load - eg my bank - most of the page loads but not the buttons. Spotify does not load. Most of the Amex page loads. Accessing this forum site works fine.

RDP through the VPN works. RDP to an internet based host will see the host, connect, and then give me a black screen only.

dns over tls is on, dns rebinding is off. Override dns settings is on.

Visiting a website will use a lot of external resources. For example, if you visit YouTube, you may request resources from Google and Yaho. At this time, your strategy should include all resource websites, not just YouTube.

Huh? No idea what you’re trying to say.

I just tried and seems I have the same problem. I am investigating.

Can I know which service provider you are using?
