    Anybody else having trouble surfing the net on their Macs?

    First, Im sure the wifi is okay. All our iPhones and iPads are working fine, same as my wife’s Macbook.

    The wifi has 4 bars naman. But when I launch Safari or Chrome, it says it cant connect. I tried to download updates, upgraded to Big Sur, it downloaded the update, too!

    I also tried to make check if proxies were checked, all were unchecked. Anyone else going through this problem now?

    It was the VPN When I turned it off, it was able to connect. Any tips on how I should tweak the settings so that it doesn't happen again?

    A VPN usually allows you to pick which of their location servers to use. Try choosing a different location.
