I am using open vpn on a dd-wrt router. The non vpn connection is 100mbit and I get 70 to 80mbit without issue.


With AirVPN I am getting 15mbit down and 5mbit up.


Is this normal?


I am sure a while ago I was getting 10mbit down.

Yes it's normal insofar as you're using old or non-AES capable hardware - commercial routers aren't the best option for maximum performance either, in this use case scenario.


If you ran Eddie locally, instead of on your router, you would probably get higher speeds.


Do also try different protocols and locations, where possible.


You should probably specify what router you're using .

As suggested, I connected using Eddie and speed went up to 100mbit, great, which is the max of my internet connection.


So I then purchased a top end router for dd-wrt and am getting 40mbit. I guess someone needs to come out with a more powerful router.

With the help of the dd-wrt forum I was able to make some configuration changes to the router to improve performance, I am now getting 100mbit, which is the max of my line.


AirVPN rocks !!!!


Can you please provide the configuration changes you made to improve VPN performance on your router?
