Troubleshooting Guide

Your VPNUK account should work first time, everytime. If you ever experience any problems with your VPN connection the first thing we urge you to do is contact us on our Live Help service, we can offer instant assistance with all connection issues and get you back online. The following is a basic troubleshooter for the more common issues that can arise from our VPN service.

ISP DNS Hijack / DNS Leak Protection

Some ISPs will attempt to hijack your DNS settings which hinders the VPN connection from functioning correctly. If you find that your VPNUK connection does not route your traffic correctly you can try changing your Public DNS server to the VPNUK DNS server or to an alternative like Google DNS.
1.
Go to Settings.
2.
Go to ‘Wireless and Network’ settings.
3.
Go to ‘Wi-Fi’.
4.
Click your connection from the list of available networks for a few seconds and select ‘Modify network’ when the option appears.
5.
Select the option to ‘Show advanced options’ and ensure the IP Settings dropdown is set to ‘Static’.
6.
Change ‘DNS 1’ to the VPNUK Public DNS server: 109.169.6.2 or the Google Public DNS IP address: 8.8.8.8.
7.
Thats it!
