I have a home wifi network that I want to access remotely via VPN.
I want to access files/folder that I have shared and the internet access through my home wifi (not from my local wifi) - That is I want the default bhaviour of VPN
My router (speedtouch 780WL) at home gets assigned a dynamic ip address from my ISP. In my router I have a feature to assign public IP to a computer. Which I have done so. Hence when my home computer is turned on it is assigned the public ip address of my router.
As a result of the above change in my router configuration the ip that gets assigned to my person computer is like 126.96.36.199 other computers on the same network are assigned ip addresses like 192.168.1.65 , 192.168.1.66 and so on.
The gateway/router ip address within my home netwrok is 192.168.1.254
Now from outside the network I can access 188.8.131.52 ip which accesses my home computer which is perfectly fine.
In my home computer (windows 7 pro) In the network connection I have created a new incoming network connection using default settings. which has 'Allow other to access my local network' and 'assign ip address automatcally using dhcp' enabled
When I remotely connect to my home network thourgh vpn I can access my files/folders on the network but there is no Internet access.
The VPN connection status says
IPV4 Connectivity no Internet access. IPV6 Connectivity no Network access.
The description says
DHCP enabled no IPv4 address 192.168.1.66 IPv4 subnet mask 255.255.255.255 IPv4 default gateway Empty IPv4 DNS server 192.168.1.254 IPv4 WINS server Empty Netbios over tcpip enabled Yes
Any ideas why internet is not accessible ? My suspicion is the default gateway which is empty in the details of VPN connection should have been 192.168.1.254 which address of the router. Even though in the VPN client connection properties -> Networking IPV4 -> properties -> Advanced -> use default gateway on remote network is checked.
