VPN Keeps Disconnecting

Jump to solution

I boot up my media pc windows10 and have vpn set to auto connect. it connects then right away disconnects, it doesn't matter where its connected to, and this is just a recent thing as last week it worked fine. i have also added my network in settings. I have a gaming pc windows10 on same network, same account, and it has no problem connecting. I have done a full reinstall with no luck, and I am on renewal with all updated info. the only firewall and vpn it this one on pc. so i have no idea whats happing.

Many thanks~ before following your suggestion, I tried updating itself by manual. It finally turned to R36! 
And it's all running so well as before.

Once again, thank you so much!!!

Hi there~
I'm suffering the same failure after installing OS 5 days ago.
My OS info: Windows 10 Home; Version: 20H2

McAfee info: Total Protection, Version: 16.0; Release Name: 16.0 R35

1.) Uninstall McAfee, Reinstall McAfee: Done.
2.) Turn off McAfee firewall, VPN keeps disconnecting. It turns off right after "VPN is connected" shows.

Hope someone can help with this. Thanks a million.
