I have been using Spectrum from my mother's house for over a month to work from home. So 10 days ago when I logged into work via vpn my speed dropped immensely. Spoke to my IT and we tested. We did a tracert for the url before logging into vpn and a lot of packets and were a couple concerning asterisks. I can log into vpn but unable to perform my job until something is fixed. I cant seem to get an actual tech to speak to my network IT to try to figure out what changed. I havent been able to work for 2 days so I might need to try another ISP in this area because if I can't work I can't pay my Spectrum bill which clearly isn't very helpful troubleshooting when dealing with other carriers.

    If the only problem you're having is with the VPN then the problem probably is the VPN or the VPN's host's network.
