  1. Hey guys, thanks for the quick responses. Quick update on the HybridVPN situation; After removing the laptop from device manager(in DUMAOS), rebooting the router, assigning the laptop its own IP in the routers dhcp and generating a new openVPN config file it seems to work. I'm not quite sure why all this solved the problem, but at least it seems to have solved it for me. I could have been more organized in my troubleshooting, but i guess i was a bit impatient. Anyways thank you guys.
  2. Hey, thanks for the quick reply. The laptop is connected via WiFi. The laptop doesn't seem to support MAC randomization as it's not an option in my WiFi settings. I've during the troubleshooting tried to disabled the windows firewall, just to exclude network policies. Still no luck.
  3. Hi, I have recently bought the Netgear XR500 for configuring my own LAN devices with VPN. I've tried to configure HybridVPN, but i cant make it work properly. I have as of now 2 devices in my LAN(described below). The Iphone works without a problem, but my laptop is giving me wrong public IP and location. I've tried the following: Configuring the routers internet settings with the DNS provided by the VPN provider Different openVPN config file to test if TCP or UDP tunneling would do the trick Flushed DNS on laptop, flushed browser for cached data and also restarted all devices on my LAN(including the router) Included devices under VPN Traffic and selected the following mode : DO NOT VPN THESE SERVICES Checked that the MAC-address provided by DUMAOS corresponds with the physical address of the devices I havent been able to find a solution to this specific problem on this, or the netgear community forum. If anyone here has a solution or could give me some tips for further problem solving, that would be much appreciated.
