VPN connection to Japan "established" using VPN gate... but I'm still in America?

When I first downloaded softether and ran vpngate everything worked fine. Now, a few weeks later I tried again and it doesn't. Even though I've "successfully" connected and have supposedly been handed a new IP, it doesn't seem to work. Tracert 8.8.8.8 shows that I am still using my old IP instead of the 10.211 IP, and VPNgate homepage shows I am still in America.
Additionally,I see the wifi symbol in the task bar instead of the expected ethernet symbol. I also have reinstalled softether and VPN gate to try and fix it, but no luck. I have never changed any settings, and I haven't done anything differently than before. Same thing with all other servers listen on VPNgate. Any ideas what's going on?

have a look at the ip route table

there is a "bug" regarding this.....

for linux system when using vpnclient I have to correct it manually, search for my posts, I described it here already

windows client does not have this problem

Use whatismyip.com it is easier and faster to see where you are
