    pdb1:
    So far it seems as though the add on VPN works better than anything else . But not by much . And not consistently . I haven't set up a real VPN yet .

    nolan60:

    First thing i would do is setup a real vpn that's the only way you are running a true vpn service ... there are a few good free ones out there

      Because I keep seeing articles like this :

     

    Free VPN services may cost nothing but there is usually a good reason for that - it means the provider will be turning a profit in some other way, usually with invasive advertising or by selling your browsing data to third-parties (rather defeating the whole drive for privacy in the first place).

    Plus, free services tend to limit the amount of data you can use and the speed you can use it at, rendering them useless for streaming video, torrenting or as an extra layer of reliable security in your day-to-day online life. And don't expect the kind of easy access support or server range that you get with the paid services, either.

    So before we get stuck in to our list of the best free VPN downloads, it's worth knowing that a paid-for version can cost as little as $2.50 per month and will give you much better performance and protection.

    Nolan,

     

    Can you please provide some examples of the best / better free real VPNs in your experience for us novice ill informed non tech.  E.G I barely comprehend what a VPN does other than provide a direct, clean path to the data you are intending to up or down load. Yes?

    Thank for any help or info you are willing to provide out of pure kindness,

    This is exactly what I’m getting on my MacBook Pro.  Exactly. And it is NOT my internet, other devices are running fine, as is the MacBook Pro.  It’s WGT.  

    thank you for explaining the problem perfectly.

    It is weird. I was getting the same thing on My Windows PC as everyone else and running A VPN was the only way I could connect. Then when I got home from work Friday my PC had frozen and  didn't appear to be starting, But I noticed that everything seemed to load it just didn't show up on my monitor. I unplugged my monitor and plugged it back in and it came back on. Since then with just my normal internet access I haven't even had a single resolving shot much less a sorry we can't connect to the server. Could restarting the PC a couple of times fixed the access problem or was it just a coincidence?

      Unfortunately my luck has gotten worse . Since the update . I can no longer use PCEA . The load time to the game client is over 6 minutes . If it ever loads . The load time for any format of play is over 6 minutes .

      I have been playing on my tablet ( a cheap samsung ) . Which has about 1/3 of the load time of my PC .

      If I use my phone . Everything is immediate . No waiting at all .

      But I am no good at the touch screen . On the tablet and phone . I do not like it . I do not want to learn it or use it .

      I'm a mouse clicking fool . And want to stay that way .
