I've tried to connect to the VPN tonight. I am able to connect, but somethings wrong with DNS as I can't go to any website. DNS Lookup completely fails. I didn't have this problem last night.

I'm still having the same problems now. I've seen you use Google DNS, but when I try to use their DNS servers without the VPN, they work.

I had a similar issue. It turned out I was signed in to the VPN from two locations at once. It doesn't sound like this is your issue, but I'll throw it out there just in case.

I'm only using one computer for the VPN, however I also have setup the VPN on my iPhone. I just tried using it on there with no luck, which means it's not just my computer.

In my situation, it is not only DNS issue, in fact, it is no traffic would be routed out after login in the pass two days onward.

Your right, I'm not getting any response to the pings while using the VPN.

try to ping your own VPN IP address and gateway address to see if you get any replies....
i can only think of problem with your VPN account unless VPN was not configured correctly.

my x10VPN account works well with my Mac Mini, Macbook Pro and my iPhone 4S.

Connect using Mac OS X
Easily connect your Mac OS X computer to the VPN network. We have put together a short step-by-step guide for connecting using the normal network services that come with your Mac, we do not support any 3rd party software.

Open the "System Preferences" and select the "Network" section
Click the "+" in the lower left-hand corner to add a new service
Select the following properties:
Interface: VPN
VPN Type: PPTP
You can name your service whatever you would like - we've used "x10VPN"
Select the newly created service (you can add a new configuration or leave as default)
Fill out the following configuration properties:
Server Address: server1.x10vpn.com
Username: Same as x10VPN.com account
Encryption: Automatic
Click "Authentication Settings" and select "Password" - Enter the same password used for your x10VPN.com account
Click on the "Advanced..." button at the bottom right-hand corner
In the options tab select the "Send all traffic over VPN connection"
Click "Connect", you should see green bars and a connection timer appear on successful connection to the VPN service.

I've tried to setup the VPN on my mac again from scratch, but it didn't help. I pinged my VPN IP address and the address for the VPN server and they both worked, however nothing else responded to my pings.
