    Since my Wi-Fi connection previously read "Connected, no internet" I could not access any website. Hence I went into the Wi-Fi settings and clicked the "Forget" button to forget the WiFi network (home) which I was trying to access.

    Then I tried to connect to the home WiFi again, this time it reads "Blocked". Why is that and how can I unblock it so that I can surf without trouble?

    Extra info: I am using a VPN (openVPN)and AFWall+ on Android 10.

    Hi, which phone/device?

    Have you turn your VPN off to see if you get connected?

    My phone is rooted, to be more precise an ano-phone (www.ano-phone.com). Perhaps some of you might happen to use one and have encountered the same problem.

    My VPN would not connect since I'm unable to connect to the internet.

    Loads of thanks in advance for any reply.

    Hi
    Sorry for the duplicate. I'm having trouble with this forum. Actually I wanted to reply to mustang's feedback but I don't know how to do that. So this reply might look like it's a generic one... sorry again!

    Well, I'm using an ano-phone (www.ano-phone.com) with an especially hardened version of Android 10. In fact, ano-phone uses a Cubot (hardware) but flashed their own OS on it to make it a secure smartphone. So in the end, it is software-wise no Cubot any more.

    AFWall+ doesn't block my browser. I'm really unable to get Wi-Fi running, which is operating normally on my old smartphone and my computer.

    Did you already look at the tips in my wi-fi guide that I linked previously?

    If you are told the connection is blocked, I would be looking at router settings first.

    I managed some workaround which I don't deem to be practical. Here it is:

    1) disable AFWall+
    2) connect to home Wi-Fi
    3) launch browser and Start a website (it works!)
    4) enable AFWall+ again

    After 4) my phone remains protected by VPN and AFWall+, and I can surf. I have to proceed this way after booting up my phone. This can't be it! Why having AFWall+ and VPN if I must turn them off for a few seconds in order to be able to surf?!

    Try allowing the phone, DHCP (and maybe everything in UDP - that depends on AFWall) to go through. (It might take a custom script.) If AFWall blocks the phone, you can't connect to anything.

    From Google Play:

    AFWall+ (Android Firewall +) is a front-end application for the powerful iptables Linux firewall.It allows you to restrict which applications are permitted to access your data networks (2G/3G and/or Wi-Fi and while in roaming). Also you can control traffic within LAN or while connected through VPN.
    And from your #1 above, sounds like the app may be causing the issue. Have you uninstalled/rebooted/reinstalled? Sorry, had to ask.
