The internet is connected to the system but after the VPN is connected the internet connection is dropped automatically and the system shows "No Internet". I have tried to remove the VPN and add it again but it did not help.

    Hello @Mintu Kumar !

    Welcome to Microsoft QnA!

    You have a Routing Problem

    If you have control over the VPN you can go to

    VPN - Scroll Down - Change adapter options and find the Connection

    Right Click - Properties -Networking - TCP/IP v4 and Advanced

    In Ip Settings UNCHECK Use Default Gateway , in this way routing is going through your PC for all , except the VPN Networks

    Welcome to the Microsoft Q&A Platform. Thank you for reaching out & I hope you are doing well.

    I understand that your machine says "No Internet available" after connecting to Azure P2S VPN.

    I suggested to check if this is a DNS issue or routing issue.

    Interestingly, Internet seems to work from CMD and browser, only that the Windows Notification says that there is no Internet.

    In this case, I suspect this an OS related issue (an isolated incident) and I believe we would require a specialized 1:1 session, where a support engineer can have a screen share session to pinpoint the issue.

    • Are you able to repo this issue in any other local servers?

    Kindly let us know if this helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
