Default Re: VPN stopping internet connection

I think this article is clearer on how to assign your laptop with a static IP address.

https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/1924...-or-windows-7/

First though you will need to open a Command Prompt and enter ipconfig /all and make a note of the Subnet Mask and Default Gateway as they may be different to the article.

I'm with TT and my Subnet Mask is 255.255.255.0

TalkTalk routers use 192.168.1.1 for their Default Gateway so you should be safe to assign 192.168.1.200 as the static IP address, otherwise you will need to contact TalkTalk to find out how to alter the DHCP range in your router and then assign the address outside of the DHCP range.

192.168.1.200 should be sufficiently far away so as not to cause a conflict with any other device that is connected.

It's pretty straight forward really.
