1] Disable VPN connection

When you install a VPN or virtual machine (VirtualBox, VMware) on your Windows computer, a new set up gets added in the ‘Network Connections’ settings of Windows. This helps your computer use that adapter setting when the corresponding VPN or virtual machine is turned on. Let’s assume that you are using an ethernet connection – but your system is trying to use another adapter or settings. At such times, you can face this issue. That is the reason why you should disable VPN connection’s adapter settings from the Network Connections panel. For that, press Win + R, type ncpa.cpl and hit the Enter button.

Now right-click on the properties of a VPN or virtual machine and select Disable.
