VPN required for the internet to work
Hello, I bought a Netgear C6250-100NAS AC1600 a couple months ago and have recently started to notice issues with my internet. Whenever I'm on twitch, discord, etc the websites/programs will randomly stop working both on my pc with ethernet and on my phone over wifi. I will still be connected to the internet but whatever I'm on will act as if my internet went out. Iv found that for some reason when ever I use my vpn it somewhat fixes the issue. It immediately allows me to connect to whatever I'm trying to use but with some lag included even when my download speed is good. There's no parental control or website filters so that's not why the vpn is somehow fixing it.
My download speeds go up to 300Mbps on my desktop with ethernet but I noticed on my phone connected to 5ghz wifi I only had 6Mbps at one point even though I'm next to the router
A speed test as I'm typing this
Phone 2.4GHz: DWN 43.6Mbps UP 7Mbps/5GHz: DWN 82.4Mbps UP 7.31Mbps
Desktop with ethernet:
Test 1: DWN 0.62Mbps UP 3.81Mbps
Test 2(take accouple minutes after the first one): DWN 28.50Mbps UP 3.56Mbps
Test 3(connected to vpn): DWN 42.69Mbps UP 4.82Mbps
In my router logs there are accouple different errors that I get multiple of
Critical: Started Unicast Maintenance Ranging - No Response received - T3 time-out
Warning: MDD message timeout
Warning: TEK Invalid - Invalid Key Sequence Number
Error: Missing BP Configuration Setting TLV Type
I have no idea what those errors mean and I'm not really sure what other info might help so if you need something else then let me know.
