    Hello @yeoldfart

    Thank you for contacting us on F-Secure Community Portal.

    Regarding your issue have you perhabs tried to add your network as trustworthy? If this link happens to be hijacked to the same subnet from the modem, you could try to follow these steps to add your network to trustworthy and try to open the link again.

    Follow these steps to set a network as trusted:

    2)Turn OFF the VPN protection 

    3) Go to Settings

    4) Enable Automatic killswitch

    5) Click Trusted Wi-Fi networks

    6) Select the network used in Trusted Wi-Fi networks dialog

    7) Click OK

    Hello and thank you for this answer, my objection is that my rig is connected to ISP box with a cable, I guess it is not relevant with a non wifi connection.

    Please investigate further

    Thanks again😊

    Hello @yeoldfart

    Thank you for your reply.

    As suggested by @CarolinaC , in Windows and Mac, the trusted network setting has an effect even on wired networks when the kill switch is enabled.

    You can refer to the link below on how to add the network as trusted and turn on the automatic kill switch.

    Thank you, and have a good day.
