Google VPN service observation
Google is now beginning to promote their VPN service to Google One customers. Experimenting with it, I observed one thing I thought I would point out in case someone else encounters the same issue.
Certain modems have a private IP address of 192.168.100.1. At present, it looks like you have to turn off Google's VPN to access the modem's login page. Not a huge deal, but a bit of a nuisance and a first time user might not realize what is happening. While some modems allow you to modify your private IP address, so far as I can tell mine does not. I've reached out to Google to see if there is a work-around, including a tracert showing the 'hop' out to them. After that, the trace stops. A simple "whitelist" would be nice.
Everything in the 192.168.1 subnet is fine, for instance, accessing the "console" on an HP printer.
