Not connected, Your IP:

ANSWERED Ethernet Connection / TAP Adapter / Router / 100Mbps

Recommended Posts



Having a strange issue I could use some help with.


I have a media server that is connected through Gigabit Ethernet to my router


VPN OFF : it connects at full speed and the router ui shows the wired connection is "1000 Mbps"


VPN ON : initially it connects at fast speeds, correctly through the vpn, but after 10-20 minutes it starts getting capped at 100Mbps and the router ui shows wired connection is "100 Mbps"


If I then switch VPN OFF the speed continues to be capped at 100Mbps until I reboot the router.


In windows the TAP adapter "status" show speed is "100 Mbps"



Does this "100 Mbps" status mean anything ?


Is it possible the TAP connection is reporting to the router that it is "100 Mbps" and the router sets it accordingly ?


Thanks for any help

Wow, I was beginning to wonder where they put this list as it wasn't on swupdate.openvpn.net anymore. Thank you for the link!

Always remember:
There's a guide to AirVPN,

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here,
running TOR exits is discouraged,

using spoilers for your logs helps us read your thread.

Instead of writing me a personal mail, consider contacting me via XMPP at gigan3rd@xmpp.airvpn.org or join the lounge@conference.xmpp.airvpn.org. I might read the mail too late whereas I'm always available on XMPP

I have exact the same problem.


I un-installed tap 9.21.2, re-installed 9.22.1 resetted my router, but tap9 is still showing 100mbps

hence very slow system responce.


Switch of AirVpn, and I'm back to normal speed / system responce.
