Sometimes, all it takes is for your router or firewall to be improperly configured to cause your VPN connection to drop frequently. Making adjustments to your router or firewall configuration is often necessary to maintain any kind of reliable connection when using a VPN service.

1. You should try to Ping an external IP such as 1.1.1.1 and 8.8.8.8 to verify that you have an active internet connection.
2. However, if you get to know that the main issue is DNS related in the "reply" of ping command then try to DNS issues.

The issue could happen when you configure the VPN connection as the default gateway on the remote network. The VPN settings override the default gateway settings (TCP/IP settings). It uses the default gateway setting on the local network for Internet traffic.

Hope this information is helpful to you.
