Re: Casting From Windows 10 Requires that VPN be Disconnected (Disabled)
Thanks for the reply.
I did look into this, and the best proposed solution is to create a hotspot on my Windows machine (very easy to do), and then connect my Roku to that PC (also very easy to do). In theory, by doing this I could keep my VPN and project a display onto the TV via Roku.
I was able to create the hotspot, and connect Roku through that hotspot, both easily verifiable. But projecting (casting) using this method fails every time. It's supposed to work, but it simply doesn't.
There are other alternatives, like installing a VPN to my router, but I don't want to risk corrupting my routers firmware.
