Office VPN suddenly stopped working with Telstra SmartModem

As of yesterday I cannot connect to my work VPN. I have full internet access. I read some other related posts which advise to set Firewall to Low, however, this did not resolve my issue. I even disabled firewall which did not help. Other users in my organisation can connect so not an issue on the work VPN side. All factors point towards the modem. This appeared to occur after rebooting both the modem and cable adapter. Can anybody assist please?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Shortly after this happened there was a Broadband outage, and when it came back up last night, my VPN started working again. Go Figure!

Telstra Smart Modem

Plug in and connect in minutes. Smart.
