How do you establish a connection to VPN?

It is possible that you went from having a static IP address to using DHCP. The VPN connection may be configured to allow specific IP addresses to establish a session. You can investigage this internally.

You may have also changed the broadband modem/router and the new equipment — or the broadband service provider may not support VPN. You will need to check with the broadband service provider and possibly the manufacturer of the broadband modem/router for answers to resolve these unknowns.

The best way to ensure a stable VPN with any type of public internet connection is to have either 1) a static Public WAN IP on your router, or 2) use a Dynamic DNS service – like DynDNS, that points to your carriers IP range…

And as mentioned, ensure your ISP provides for VPNs, isn’t blocking any of the ports used by your chosen VPN solution, and configure your modem/router set-up to allow the public IP to be seen on the routers “external” interface…
