WireGuard® Local Network

My local network is broken and refuses access when connected to WireGuard®

The issue of broken local network routing appears to only happen in WireGuard® for Windows, where all traffic is forced to go through WireGuard® prior to routing. To resolve the issue that local network routing is prohibited by WireGuard® involved adding static route. However, there is easier solution built into the WireGuard® Windows client.

To allow traffic within local network to bypass WireGuard® so that the route does not get killed, follow these steps:

  1. Open the WireGuard® Windows client.
  2. In the left pane, select the connection that you want local network routing to work, if you have more than one configuration.
  3. Click onto the ‘Edit‘ button.
  4. Uncheck ‘Block untunneled traffic (kill-switch)‘ option.
  5. Click ‘Save’.
  6. Disconnect and reconnect the VPN if its already connected.
