VPN works under wired connection but not wireless

Recommended Posts



I frequently connect to my work's network via VPN. Recently I bought a new computer and installed a TP-Link wireless networking card.


What happens is that when I have a cable connecting the PC to the router I can initiate a VPN connection. If I try to initiate a VPN connection when connected to the router via the wireless card, the connection cannot be established. If I disable the firewall the VPN connection will be established.


I tried setting up a specific rule that allowed all traffic carried by the VPN and associated ports and moved it to the top of the rule list but it did not help. EIS does not display a prompt asking whether to allow or deny traffic when the connection attempt is made when connected to the router wirelessly.


Can anyone tell me why this is happening, please?

please open Emsisoft Internet Security and go to the section Protection subsection Firewall button Manage networks. Be sure your wireless connection is set to Private network and try again to use the VPN over the wireless connection. Is the VPN working if you set the wireless connection to private network?

Hi, Christian


Apologies for the late response.


The wireless network is already set to Private.




I just tried the VPN connection and it worked! Damn I am confused. Thanks a lot anyway :)
