How to fix Internet problems caused by VPN

With numerous free VPNs in the market, more users would use the VPN for online security or change IP addresses. The VPN service shields your IP address and critical connection information from thieves who might use that data to hack your system or from the prying eyes of anyone who may want to know where you've been or what you've been doing across the internet. While some may meet the problem that the Internet stops when connect to a VPN server. The problem can easily be fixed, and all you need to do is to change the DNS servers you use. The easiest DNS service for free is Google DNS: 8.8.4.4 or 8.8.8.8. Here we will describe how to change your DNS servers.
