Q: Why can't my Windows 10 device reach the internet when VPN is connected but my Windows 7 one can?

hippietrailI'm in China with an old Win7 netbook and a new Win10 tablet. Formerly, either device would work on Wi-Fi with or without VPN but of course I needed VPN for Google, Facebook, etc. Recenently the Win10 tablet's Wi-Fi goes to "limited" each time I connect to VPN and returns to normal each time I ...

@hippietrail Did you just ask a question, them 3 minutes later mark it as a duplicate of a question also asked (and answered) by yourself? o.0

there's at least 18 months between them too. i knew i'd asked something similar a few times but didn't think i'd asked about china to korea

But I'm wondering about getting a new visa for China when I'm in Taiwan. I know China considers Taiwan a part of it so doesn't have embassies or consula...

Q: Can I get a Taiwan visa from China

Ayesh KI am a Sri Lankan citizen currently living in Sri Lanka. I'm planning a short trip to Taiwan this October, and they require us to get visa in advance to enter the country.

@MarkMayo, at 9, this may be the highest number of concurrent open bounties in history. Certainly within my own experience I have never seen so many. Tomorrow with the opening of the competition, there is a chance to make it 10 depending upon their expiries.
we've had double figures in the past
but I believe like 11-13 only, not anything huge
@GayotFow I have no idea what the cooling off period for Aus/NZ is
@Dirty-flow chance for...?

@MarkMayo look at the referred message - there was a qustion in the reopen queue
