    Hi Guys, I have really unreliable internet and when it drops out, vpn running on this internet drops out. This ends up exposing my real ip (which is banned). Is there a solution for this?

    Use a VPS instead of a VPN.

    Most have 99% uptime, and will never show your real IP.

    Thank you for the fast response. Is VPS similar to VPN? Can you get dedicated IP addresses? Also do you know any good providers here?

    You should always have some form of protection active in case the vpn connection drops for any reason. One of the most simple ways to do so would be to use software that will automatically close your browser in the event of a dropped connection. Below is a list of a few software companies that are well known for doing just that:

    Or if your using Windows you can simply use the built in firewall to configure your browser to not have internet access if the vpn connection drops, below is a good tutorial on how to set it up:

    I believe there is even a Firefox extension that will close things down if your Internet drops. I will try and find it for you.
