Killer e2600 adapter fail connection using Forticlient VPN

We acquired a ACER laptop equipped with the Killer E2600 adapter with updated driver to version 1168.10.720.2022.

The Wifi adapter is a Killer(R) Wi-Fi 6E AX1675i 160MHz Wireless Network Adapter (211NGW).

 

The issue we are confronted with is establishing a IPSEC VPN connection back to a Fortigate 40F firewall unit.   Using the wire ethernet connection the VPN fails to connect.

If we connect to the Fortigate unit via WiFi then the VPN connection functions correctly.

This is the first Killer E2600 adapter that I have seen and the only one exhibiting this problem.

The VPN client is Forticlient VPN ver 7.2

On the Fortinet forum there is only one mentioned issue with the same issue, though the adapter was another manufacturer.  The issue was resolved with an updated driver.

You are wrong. This is definitely an ethernet product issue and not a wireless issue. If not this section then route to the correct one.

Was able to return to the laptop in question that is experiencing the problem. Executed your recommendations to no avail the problem persists. Confused my additional research indicates that the Intel E2600 ethernet adapter is actually a Realtek product. Is this correct?
