Issues with VPN and VPN Director

Hello I am using an Asus RT-AX88U router with the latest Merlin software installed. I have many guest networks set up for different reasons. One of my guest networks is used for work devices and i have set it to not use my OpenVPN Torguard connection.

I get my regular ISP IP address when using this guest network but I notice that a lot of sites will get blocked when doing a redirect. I can solve the issue by turning off my VPN. My question is though why is that affecting me when I have it to disable VPN for that network.

Have a messed something up or is there an issue with VPN director.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Are you using YazFi?

What do you mean by "redirect"? A firewall redirect? http redirect? Please be specific.

P.S. Or do you mean by "redirect" if the client has a VPN Director rule routing them over the VPN?

Yes I am using Yazfi and sorry I mean an http redirect. Sometimes pages won't load right away either and I need to refresh a few times to get them to come up. If I disable VPN everything works fine.

I just don't get why it affects the devices connected to a guest network with VPN disabled.

I used the Yazfi GUI to set up the subnets I wanted to use for each guest wifi.

I then enabled VPN in Yazfi for the guest networks I wanted to use VPN and then the rules were automatically added to VPN Director.

it does work as far as getting ISP IP or VPN IP but when I try to access my works cloud connected to a guest network set to WAN in VPN director. I get a blank white page.

Until I disable my vpn in GUI. Then it works.

Did I ask I’m wrong place? Surprised I didn’t get a reply or am I missing something so simple I should know.
