I have been using Air/Eddie for about 1.5 years, never had an issue like this.
I was looking for a torrent, so I turned on my PC, activated network lock and connected to recommended server, all just like normal. I couldn't find what I was looking for, so I was just going to watch a show on Netflix. So I disconnected, and turned off the network lock, and then closed Eddie. Once disconnected, I realized, that now, without the VPN connected, my internet didn't work (as if the network lock was still on), so I reopened, Eddie to confirm it was not activated, and it is not.
I restarted the PC, no change, still no internet access, Re-open Eddie, and cycle network lock on and off, no change, connect to Recommended server, and everything is working fine, disconnect, no network lock, still no internet.
I have confirmed my IPv4 is set to Auto (which I saw as a suggestion to a similar sounding issue).
Eddie version is 2.10.3
Thanks for any help you can offer.
