    Hi @leuveg

    You may want to try the below instructions;

    • Turn the FREEDOME protection off and on again
    • Try connecting to another FREEDOME location

    Change the VPN protocol in use:

    1. Open F-Secure FREEDOME 
    2. Go to Settings
    3. Click Choose VPN protocol
    4. Switch between OpenVPN and IKEv2
    5. Turn the VPN protection on 


    • Restart computer
    • Restart your network router
    • Try to connect with another internet connection entirely (share for example with mobile hotspot)
    • Make sure Windows is updated

    Run the following command line commands:

    • ipconfig /flushdns
    • netsh winsock reset
    • netsh int ipv6 reset

    After performing the above steps, try to turn the protection on.
