When I try to connect my VPN to my console I get a DNS error when connecting. Tried looking for a solution, using MS DNS error help, and none of it worked. If someone could help it would be much appreciated.

How are you connecting to it? What steps are you taking to connect your Xbox to the VPN?

Sharing the connection from my PC to the 360. Then also tried sharing the VPN's connection to the 360 and none of it worked.

Yea, I've been seeing video's on how to do it, but I don't know what to put in the "Internet address" box for my VPN.
I don't remember having to do that hmm.

You don't do that, does it say to do that in the tutorial I showed you?

What VPN are you using?
Oh, didn't see the edit. TunnelBear VPN.

EDIT: He does use the internet address... He just has something to put in it. I don't.

You can try gyzao but it only lasts like 5 seconds, if that.

Yep. Pc to my 360.
When turning on your VPN there should be a new connection in that list of connections; in network and sharing. When I turn on mine "securline" pops up.

Something like that should pop up for you, what does your list look like?

If you are talking about my VPN popping up in network and sharing upon connection, yes: https://gyazo.com/fe63bc6392bd21f38b01a79177b42c2c
Okay cool cool.

Unbridge your current connection with your 360 and PC. It is connected with your PC's internet, yes?

Unbridge/unshare it with your PC's WiFi. Next, make sure your VPN is on and connected and just share with the VPN's connection. Just the VPN's.

So it should be

  • Your internet online and ready.
  • You're connected to your VPN on the PC.
  • Ethernet from PC to 360
  • Internet connection shared between the VPN's connection and your 360.

Internet Unshared from EVERYTHING

- VPN is now sharing with 360
- VPN is connected to the console, but no internet. Still a DNS error.
