Service provider is Torguard
Happens at home and at hotels. Don’t normally have my computer when in area where there is public wi-fi so I don’t know.
The wi-fi will be connected. Then I’ll go to VPN client and select CONNECT to bring it up. I’ll get “network is unreachable” messages. If I go back to Wireless menu, it will show no wi-fi connected.
Note that for my home networks (regular and guest - same router) as well as other trusted networks (like where I volunteer), I have enabled “reconnect” so it will restart wifi. However, for security purposes, I never auto-reconnect hotel or other wifi sites so I have to rescan to make it reconnect.
For the home and trusted networks, after a number of “network is unreachable”, the automatic reconnection will eventually become successful and the VPN will connect. For non-autoconnect sites, I will have to repeatedly rescan and reconnect to finally get the VPN to come up. Once the VPN has connected, it most always stays on with no wi-fi disconnects but for some places (possibly weak signals) it happens again.
With the latest GL software version openwrt-mt300n-v2-3.104.bin and the latest TorGuard-provided OpenVPN software and config files, the problem on my home network is not as bad as it used to be. In repeated tests, I would get 3 “network is unreachable” messages and apparently only one disconnect before the disconnects stop and the VPN connects.
It will be a while before I connect to any hotel networks. I will try and post logs for my home network when I try it again.
Note that I don’t use the MT router at home except for updating it or verifying it works before going on a trip. Both my linux machines and both my Android phones have VPN software and I have not noticed any problems like that with them connected directly to my home router.
Also Note that it happens whether I use LAN connection to the GL or wi-fi to GL but in all cases, I use wi-fi from the GL to the other router.
