There are a myriad of possible reasons that you might be having problems connecting to the internet with IPVanish. Some solutions are simple, such as restarting the router, resetting the WiFi connection, or calling your ISP. However, there are other issues that need to be addressed. In this article we will review some of the most frequent issues with IPvanish and offer solutions to assist you in getting it back to normal.
You must first confirm that your internet connection works. This can be checked by visiting a website or opening an app that requires internet connectivity. If your app or website won’t load it could be because of an issue with your Internet Service Provider. Try changing the DNS server configuration settings to try to see if this helps. For example In Windows, you can open the Command Prompt and type ipconfig /flushdns. For Linux you can run the command sudo systemd-resolve -flush-caches.
You should also ensure that your antivirus software doesn’t interfere with IPVanish. If it is, disable it temporarily to test whether this will resolve the issue. It is recommended to re-enable your antivirus program once you’ve completed testing.
If you’re still having trouble, try deleting and reinstalling the application. If it doesn’t work, then you can try disabling UAC to test if it helps. To do this, log into the Control Panel and search for UAC. After that, change the UAC settings to « never notify » to test if this resolves the issue with connectivity.
