I use Surfshark vpn via their app. When I disconnect from the vpn, my computer shows that I am connected to my home wifi (connected, secured) but I'm not able to access the internet through browser or other apps such as netflix. I've checked my home wifi and everything else is working. If I try to reconnect to the vpn the software says I'm not connected to the internet. I have to restart the computer to get the wifi to work again. This did not happen prior to moving to Windows 11.
