Hi, I'm new to the VPN scene and it seems I need some major help to get the most out of it. I also suspect that I'm slightly different from the majority of users here in that I'm using this for better gaming connectivity rather than security and privacy (basically, Playstation Network hates my non-vpn connection because it's NAT type 3, which is out of my control, so the VPN is to bypass that, which it has done).

 

My connection is shared through my appartment complex and does dhcp assignment. No way to open ports on that end as management want to enable residents to just plug into the wall and go with no requirement to buy a router, so they won't slack on security. Admirable, but annoying for me.

 

The setup: Linksys E4200 running DD-WRT v3.0-r27490 (07/06/15) mega, CAT-5 to the wall and the previously mentioned appartment complex-controlled fiber connection. 1 desktop pc connected by cable, one laptop and a playstation 4 as well as a phone on wi-fi. Speeds are the same wired or on wi-fi.

 

My speed without connection to Air is in the 80-100 Mbps range, with Air (client or set up in the router, which is the end goal) 6-9 Mbps. I'm expecting a drop in speed, but this is a little extreme.

 

Tried various combinations of servers and protocols, main two servers I've been switching between for testing have been Acubens (Sweden) and Aquilae (Germany), started with UDP on port 443, then TCP on the same port. Speeds were virtually identical, have cycled through both on port 80, 53 and 2018 as well. All setup done following the guide from AirVPN, no extra rules or setup done since I wouldn't have an idea where to start.

 

I've seen suggestions in other threads to increase the buffer sizes for people using the Air client, is this possible in DD-WRT, and if so how would I do it?

 

I've tried with and without QoS enabled, didn't seem to make a difference, but open to suggestions on tweaks there. UPnP is on, which seems to help with getting connected to Playstation Network, but have tried disabling it too.

 

Any general suggestions to optimize for speed? The safety of firewall rules dropping connection if the cpn connection goes etc are nice, but I am willing to give them up for a fast, efficient way to connect to what I want to connect to.

 

Because of the playstation, using the Air client and ICS isn't an option, I'm not moving the computer into the living room. So I really need to make it work on the router.

 

I'm not sure what info people will need to be able to help me with this, but to start with, here's the latest opvenvpn log from the router. Anything else you need, just ask and I'll get it to you.

At least 1000mhz? That's what the Netgear Nighthawks are clocked at, and outside of industrial gear, they're pretty much the fastest out there, so that's basically saying getting tolerable performance is impossible.

 

I'm not looking to get anywhere near 100% of my speed, but getting near half would be nice.

get an asus AC56 if greater cost is prohibitive.  those CPU can be overclocked to 1200megahertz.  50mbit/s openvpn is possible.

Thanks for the tip, will look into it. I've no problem spending what it takes to get decent performance, as long as I know it can actually be made to work.
