ANSWERED Cannot Use Internet Unless Connected to VPN

Recommended Posts

Hey - I'm really hoping you guys can help me.

I'm using AirVPN on a MAC - works great so far, very happy with it - but have noticed that I can no longer connect to the internet AT ALL unless I'm using the VPN. This seems a little extreme to me, and likely a bug.

I cannot put into words how hopeless I am with these kinds of things - I've looked at some previous posts of people with the same problem. Most seem to be Windows users (no use to me) and the language goes right over my head. 

Does anyone think they can help? I'd be sad to change VPNS or give them up altogether, but I don't like the idea of it not allowing me to use the internet without it.

That's actually unexpected. First thing to check is DNS settings. Make sure that publicly accessible DNS servers are set in your Mac, while Air software is not running. Did it happen while you were running Eddie or Hummingbird?

Kind regards
