I can only game using a VPN connection
Can only connect to my online games (COD:MW, World of Warcraft, Planetside 2 as exmaples) when connected through a VPN program. If I do not use this VPN connection, I lose both my 2.4 and my 5 WIFI connections. The only way I can get WIFI back is by rebooting my desktop PC. This just started a few days ago.
I have reset the router a few times
I have reset my network a few times
I have opened every port relative to these games
Deleted the network adapter and installed using scan for hardware changes option
Disabled windows firewall completely
ARRIS firewall is set to low security.
Disabled Advanced Security through the xFi applicaiton.
Interrogated my system using malware bytes.
Running network troubleshooter tells me no problems found. I show connected and can switch connections between the two WIFI options (2.4 or 5) but I am unable to even bring a webpage.
Using the xFI app, always tells me it sees a problem and needs to reboot my gateway. I found rebooting the gateway did not resolve the issue. I have to reboot the PC.
I do not know what else to do. Everything else works fine prior to trying to launch any of these games.
One different situation is I woke up this morning and my WIFI was not working again. It was working when I went to sleep 4 hours earlier. This was a first time instance. Otherwise, its always when trying to launch my games.
