VPNs and Chrome

Users may notice network interruptions when using Chrome on VPNs. This problem may not be related to your networking adapter, but rather an issue with Chrome and your computer’s Internet settings. The resolution is to stop your computer from automatically detecting proxy settings, which are unnecessary unless you are using a proxy, and can be disruptive when using Chrome with a VPN. Here are the steps:

  1. Click Start
  2. Type Internet Options and press Enter or click “Internet Options.”
  3. Click the Connections tab
  4. Click the LAN Settings button
  5. Make sure the box beside Automatically detect settings is NOT checked

You can now close any remaining open windows.
