What to do if VPN doesn’t work after upgrading Windows 10
Method 1: Uninstall the latest update
The easiest and most obvious way to fix VPN connection issues after the next update is to remove the latest one.
After uninstalling the update, it is recommended to restart your computer.

Roll back to a previous version
You can also roll back the system to a previous version if the update was made more than 10 or 30 days ago (depending on the version).
The reversal procedure will take some time. The old version will eventually be installed on your computer, but keep in mind that any adjustments you made after installing the new version will be undone.
Method 2: Reconnect
In non-complicated cases, you can solve the problem by recreating the VPN connection. Launching the “Settings” app, go to “Network & Internet” → “VPN”, highlight your VPN connection and tap “Delete”.
Create a new VPN connection with the same settings and check that it works.
Method 3: Disable IPv6
There have been cases where tunneling problems have been caused by conflicts with the new IPv6 network protocol. Try turning it off, letting only IPv4 work.
Method 4: Reinstall the network devices
If the problem is caused by a network device failure, which also cannot be ruled out during a Windows update, it can be resolved by reinstalling the WAN Miniport network adapters.
The problem of connecting to the VPN in Windows 10 has already been fixed by the developers, but if you encounter a similar problem in the future, you know what to do.
