Enrico, this isn't the expected behavior and AVG VPN shouldn't have caused this issue.

Hello Felipe,

We'll certainly look into this and help you.
In this case, we request you to disable/turn off the AVG Secure VPN and check if your can access the Internet on your laptops connected to your home Wifi.
Keep us updated.

I am also having this same problem. My computer loses it's wifi connect and eventully shuts off my wifi device. Even after rebooting my computer I have to go into the devices and enable the wifi again, only after rebooting. I thought this program would help because I thought that I had some virus or other software installed, but AVG hasn't found any threats. I have also made sure everything is completely updated as well as having my PC scanned. Not sure what this is that causes it. If you could fix it that would be great. I am a computer professional specific to IT, Software Development and Cyber Security and I have not even figured it out. Fix this issue.

Hi Anthony,

We are sorry to hear this.

We will help you to resolve the issue.

Are you able to connect with the Wifi when the AVG Secure VPN is turned off?

We request you to contact us through separate post to locate your account and assist you further.

Thank you.
