Connection problems with multiple network adapters

Issue Description:
After starting the game and choosing a character, the game displays “Error 2007” during loading and returns to character selection. I did some digging, and it seems the game has problems recognizing which network adapter to use. Leaving all my network adapters enabled, the game displays error 2007. Disabling every network adapter except my internet connection, the game displays error 3001. After that I tried re-enabling all network adapters and installing Proton VPN - which fixes the issues and the game starts normally. Maybe Proton VPN gets the game to use its network adapter and makes it work “by force”?

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Have multiple network adapters enabled in Windows
  2. Start the game
  3. Choose a character
  4. Game displays error during loading to the Morningstar and returns to character selection menu
