Subject pretty much says it. When my switch is connected to my router my work VPN (FortiClient) disconnects regularly on my work laptop (connected through WIFI). If I disconnect the switch and connect the ethernet directly to my desktop I have no issues with the VPN disconnecting on my work laptop. Any thoughts on why this may be, and if there is a possible fix?
What kind of switch is it? I can't see a reason this would happen for an unmanaged Ethernet switch, but smart/managed switches (or even "gaming" switches) can sometimes do some stranger things.
Thanks for the reply, Michael. The switch I'm referring to is a TP-Link 8 Port. It does say easy smart managed in the description if that's of any help.
