When I use my Gs5 as s hot spot for internet for my laptop if I use a vpn the data will not work. If I try to download a web page it will say theres no data connection but if I disconnected the vpn it works just fine.Does anyone know why when connected to a vpn this problem occurs. Thanks In advance!!!

More then likely, the VPN is detecting the tethering connection causing it to try to encrypt that as well as the actual data connection.

I take it you're using an app to establish a connection to the VPN? try using the native VPN connection inside android. I have used a VPN with tethering before and I believe that was my setup.

Settings > Connections > More networks.

You will need to get the server destination address and other information from your VPN client.

Hey if I was to use wifi tethering app from the market for rooted devices then a vpn app set up would work right? I just need to use the built-in vpn setup when using my native wifi hotspot? I that right. Thanks.

Nope. You need the built-in VPN setup any time you tether. Whats happening is the VPN App is detecting the WiFi connection and you data connection as being "internet connections" therefore it tries to encrypt the WiFi and Data connections double encrypting the data. Or, its not sure what network to port the data through. Using the built-in VPN setup only allows the data connection to be "VPNed"

I used to use WiFi Tether For Root Users on my S4 but still had troubles with VPN until I manually set up the VPN in android.
