Normal VPN standard setup (imported file and user/pw), using PIA as VPN provider. Can someone please help. I need these two devices NOT to use the VPN, while all others should use VPN.
when I go to (What's My IP Address? Accurate & Fast Location Info | PIA VPN) to see my IP, it still says protected by PIA.
Its your setup and configuration. I have tested on GL-AX1800 and GL-AXT1800 using a iphone MAC address exclusion. Like I stated before if you have block non vpn traffic enabled NonVPN traffic won’t leave this was the only way I was able to replicate.
Ok so that is the same a mine. You should not need to reboot but may need to flushDNS. If you want to reboot that is fine. A issue I did have was the 1st connection I had random IP and mac address enabled(IOS does have it as default) and I did mistakenly add that one.
I just want to make sure I understand: The Iphone is set to not use vpn but still connects using the vpn, as apposed to the iphone can’t leave the LAN or use the WAN, gets no connection.
I also want to make sure that you are hitting apply when you add the iphone to the MAC exclusion(I have not done this a number of times)
Correct. I want all devices on my network to use VPN by default minus the ones that are in the bypass list. I tried with my pixel 7, I added it to the list. And I still hit the VPN. (The IP address is from PIA)
I appreciate the help. My network is a little different from yours. I have a Firewalla Blue that does ARP spoofing, so the traffic was leaving outbound from that device. I unplug the firewalla and guess what? My pixel now does not use the VPN.
