Sonicwall Global VPN Issue - Intermittent packet loss

Hey Guys,

Bit of a weird issue here.
I have a sonicwall TZ200, it is doing DHCP for the VPN users, it also does VPN for the LAN users.
This is a simple one subnet network and two interface firewall. 1 LAN and 1 WAN.

Strange thing is I have managed to get the VPN connecting for my test user, we are using global vpn client.
We are getting massive packet loss, I am pinging things on the lan and losing like 75% of packets.
Funny thing is some are going through, but all have big lag attached.

Unsure of what the issue is really yet.
My first thoughts are to do the below.
1) Use a manual IP on the virtual adapter
2) Change the version of sonicwall global vpn client

Am using a windows 10 laptop for my test user who is connecting.
