Google FI "Enhanced Network" VPN never lets me connect to anything! 1 Recommended Answer 30 Replies 81 Upvotes

When I turn on Google Fi's Enhanced Network Beta, and it turns on the Google VPN, I immediately lose actual Internet connectivity to almost everything. This has been true since it was first introduced, and I try it again every time I see that relevant apps seem to have been updated, with no success. If the VPN is on, nothing actually works!

Calling that number, they shrugged in perplexity and had me call another number, which rang and rang and rang and never answered even with a voice prompt.

Care to try again, this time with something useful?

Hello

Is the VPN enabled?
  1. Open the Project Fi app
  2. Go to Fi Network Tools
  3. Turn on Enhance network

Note: Enabling network enhancements may increase your data usage by about 10% to accommodate encryption. You can turn these tools on or off at any time in the Project Fi app within the Fi Network Tools menu.

Make sure you are using the Phone app  that came on your phone to make calls. Other apps for dialing aren’t supported.

So, let me be clearer:

* I am fully connected both to my house WiFi (sometimes other WiFi, doesn't really matter what WiFi) and to a cell tower (4G LTE, usually a T-Mobile signal where I live).
* With Enhance Network OFF,  everything works--all apps, all browsing, everything.
* With Enhance Network ON, and the VPN connected (key showing, etc), NO INTERNET WORKS AT ALL. No Facebook, no browsing, no e-mail. If I then forcibly disconnect the VPN, it all works again.

Ergo, the Google VPN is the problem.

I'm having similar issues and have disabled the Enhanced network feature to overcome.  It was working fine when I first got my Pixel 3XL, but it seems one of the updates may have caused it to stop working.  Phone is fully updated and internet connectivity is affected on all connections when Enhanced Networking feature is enabled.  Have not tried to do a full reset, but may attempt that over the weekend if I have time.
