Problem Connecting After Update

I am having an issue with my Freedom not connecting after updating it.

I have done the following:

  • ipconfig /flushdns
  • netsh winsock reset
  • netsh int ipv6 reset
  • uninstalled and re-installed Freedom.

And then restarted the computer.

Is there anything else I could do resolve this issue ?

Why is it that Freedom updates keep causing connection issues and I have to spend 2 hours troubleshooting ?
