  1. I don't really want to create another slow speed post, but I tried to solve it for a day and I'm running out of idea. I'm in Canada and my isp is Rogers. My speed is 250/20. When I tried the airvpn speedtest, I was never able to pass 20mbit/s on download(I have no problem on uploads). I also tried to compare the download speed while downloading an actually file(nvidia driver), the download rate is 30-35 mb/s without vpn and max 4 mb/s with vpn. I'm running Windows 8.1 64 bit, I tried setting larger buffer size(it seems to increase the download slightly), switching to old tap driver(the older tap driver seems to work better), tried every protocols(the default udp is the best) and disable the firewall(does not have any effect). I tried playing around with these, and it will either increase or decrease the download speed slightly within the range of 500 kb/s to 4 mb/s, which is almost 10x slower than what my internet is capable of. I've also tried on my other computer which runs on ubuntu, and the download speed is pretty much the same. I remember reading somewhere that other Rogers customers are able to achieve max download speed with airvpn, so I don't think it's a problem with the isp or vpn, I just can't figure out what's wrong with my connection/computer.
  2. Hi everybody, First off, I'm a bit of a VPN newbie - I've researched loads of various possible VPN providers and settled on AirVPN due to great reviews from real people (not stooges as far as I can tell), and an emphasis on privacy on community. These are more important to me than flashy big companies and promises. I've *just* joined AirVPN, chose the yearly pack due to the discount that ends today (and honestly I'm happy to give to a community like this, even if AirVPN doesn't work out in the log run, it was a conscious and informed decision to go the yearly route). My issue is that I'm getting extremely slow speeds having just installed the client. I've selected a few of the more recommended/speedier servers based on forums both here and other places online, and it's still very, very slow on all of them. I've searched forums but there really isn't many posts about slow speeds that I can find. I'm in Australia on cable internet. My non-VPN speed averages 30-35 Mbps. When the VPN is connected the highest speed I've had is 1.8 Mbps. My PC is decent - i5 2.8Ghz, 24GB RAM, Win 7 64 bit. I'm using the AirVPN client to connect using Automatic settings and Automatic Server (but have swapped around since to try to find faster locations). Not sure what else to say. I've got Comodo firewall which I've seen causes some issues sometimes with VPNs but I've allowed the relevant .exe and ports through and made the AirVPN client a Trusted Application. Is there something I'm missing? What could I try so that I can get better speeds? I've heard from other Australians that they can get 20-25 Mbps, so being under 2 Mbps makes me think it might be me, that I've done something wrong or not done something extra, or at least that it's on my end. Sorry for posting this as my first post.. I only get 1 post a day at the moment so I wanted to see if there was any help or tips people could provide before I can post back tomorrow. Not sure what other info is required - again, I'm not VPN savvy. Thanks in advance, I very much appreciate any help! Cheers
  3. Hey guys, I'm having another VPN issue, this time regarding FTP upload speeds. I followed this guide and it worked perfectly to connect to my FTP server, but trying to download something from the server is absolutely impossible. The first moment of connection will yield somewhere between 20 kB/s and 5 megs a second, but will deteriorate seemingly exponentially. I've let a connection run for half and hour or so, just to see what will happen, and the speed reaches a plateau at around 100 bytes a second. Obviously, I refuse to believe the VPN is at fault for this; I assume it's my ISP. I've checked out others with similar problems, but I haven't found any solutions. In total, I have tried to download the file via my own IP, a DDNS pointing to the VPN server, the VPN server's exit IP, and the LAN address. From the LAN address, everything is as expected - a speed that is normal for me, about 3 megs. When connecting through my WAN IP through port 21 (which is correctly forwarded), I get a connection timeout error (Something I need to investigate). When connecting through the VPN or the DDNS, the problem I described above plagues me. Below is what I monitored by eye when trying to download a file: 3.42 MB/s 19 kB/s 14 kB/s 12 kB/s 10 kB/s 9 kB/s 8 kB/s 7 kB/s 6.9 kB/s 6.4 kB/s 5.5 kB/s 4.8 kB/s 4.3 kB/s 4.02 kB/s 3.65 kB/s 3.21 kB/s 2.98 kB/s ... (it continues to fall, but I stopped the connection there) And here is the log that it gave. I don't know if the information will be useful, though, since I prematurely terminated the connection. If anyone can give me a hand, I'd really appreciate it!
  4. I am running the following system: Raspberry pi 2 with ArchLinux Arm Kernel 3.18Provider Down/Up Speeds: 70/10 MbitI can maxout Up and Down speed without VPNIf I use my laptop (Manjaro linux) i can maxout the connection even behind the VPN, so this is not provider traffic shapingWhen using the VPN the following happens I try to to download anything using a single connection (for instance using "aria2c -x 1 -o /dev/null download_url") my top speed is going to be ~150KB/s with negligible cpu load.I try to the same thing using multiple connection (for instance using "aria2c -x 10 -o /dev/null download_url") my top speed is going to be ~600KB/s, and in both case cpu load from openvpn is about 30%, so this is not a cpu issue.If try to download a single torrent (extremely well seeded) I reach even better speeds (~1.5MB/s), with about 50% cpu load from the openvpn process.The only way to maxout the cpu and the download speed is to download several well seeded torrents at once (so a lot of connections I believe), getting 3MB/s (the expected cpu limit) with 100% cpu load.I can't say what is going on, but apparently it looks like that a "single" connection is going slow (maybe for some faulty network configuration?) and the only way to saturate the speed is to use several connections at once. Is anyone able to give any help? Best
  5. Hi everyone, ich have e problem with download speed usin vpn. Usually it's not possible to get more than 1Mb. To make connection to the airvpn I'm using ASUS RT-N66U with tomato shibby. Changing servers or ports doesn't help. I was trying with udp 443 and 53 but there is no effect. Telekom is my IPS and I have 50Mb internet connection. Could ynaone help me solving my problem? Thanks
  6. Hello -- Whenever I connect to airvpn my download/upload speeds are fine. I get full throughput downloading any number of files. However, over time (say maybe one or two days), my connection eventually slows to a halt. Any given torrent will download at 1k/s and I'm unable to seed any torrents. When this happens I've always simply restarted the VPN, and speeds immediately go back up to the previous max. Is there anything I may have overlooked that would cause this behavior? Thanks.
  7. Speedtest result from airvpn speedtest: I get a very slow Download speed. I tested several European Servers but I don't reach 4MBit/s. I also tried the "best" sever from the status page:https://airvpn.org/status/ My internet connection is far better as 4MBit/s without airvpn (more than 30MBit/s are possible and I have a very low ping) edit:Port is 443 / UDPOS: Win 7 x32
  8. Hi, I have just become aware of the MPLS protocol. Can someone give me a rough idea of how that could interact with Open VPN and if using an MPLS enabled router would be a good thing for Open VPN users? Thanks
  9. I've just started using airVPN and it seems super slow. I did the airVPN speed test: Results: Down: 1.440 Mbit/s Out, 0.430 Mbit/s In (29%), 1MB - Up: 0.400 Mbit/s Out, 0.365 Mbit/s In (91%), 1MB - Date: Sun, 24 Aug 2014 00:34:38 GMT - Buffers: 1MB/1MB - Laps: 3, Time: 218.94 secs is this good or bad?
  10. Hi, I am using a router with dd-wrt and openvpn over SSL or SSH and each time I was downloading something it would be really slow. For example, downloading the latest ubuntu 14.04 which is around 1Gb would take -- 4 hours if I double connect, meaning my router is connected to 1 airvpn router and my computer to another one -- 2 hours if I only connect to airvpn IPs through my router I fixed this by going to the dd-wrt interface, tab NAT/QoS, sub-tab QoS and select "start QoS": enable, Services priority : select "ssh", click "add" and then select "maximum" And then whatever mode of connection I would choose, my download speed for the same 1Gb file would be "13 minutes"!!! Look at the image I enclose. If this is not a good idea in terms of security, let me know, because I am not an expert on network settings, thanks.
  11. Hi, The upload speed constantly flicks between zero and about 1kb. Even with all browsers closed and nothing else connected to the internet (apart from AirVPN). Why is the upload speed (reported in the Overview) not zero? Same question for download speed. Thx.
  12. Good afternoon Staff, Has anyone else reported issues with the Sirrius server today? I'm normally able to resolve sites without issue and get a download speed of 10M+ but today a bunch of sites (including Amazon and Twitch.tv) are not resolving or taking 5 minutes to resolve, and if I connect the most I am getting is about 0.75M down and 0.25M up. I've run speed tests on a couple of sites (using different browsers) and the results are consistent. Dnsleaktest.net is showing only AirVPN's DNS and I'm not otherwise being rate controlled or QOS'ed on my local LAN.
  13. My normal internet speed is 60-70 Mbps, but when i decide to use the vpn now, my speeds are gone. Always less than 10mbps, normally about 4-5mbps. This Suddenly happened, I had moved my router to a different room as well as my computer when it happened, but i don't see why this would have caused anything to happen if my normal speeds are the same. Also, why is there no japan servers? just curious.
  14. Hi, I've tried connecting to various servers, but always get the same problem; 0kb/s download, Upload ~34,000kb/s when I'm not even uploading anything. Obviously nothing will load due to the download rate. The issue only started today. Any ideas? Many thanks for your help
  15. Hello, in the last week I noticed that AIRVPN Downloadspeed is getting lower and lower. Normaly I have 24MBits/4,5Mbits but when using AIRVPN i get arround 3-5Mbits in both Down- and Upload. I tried to connect to different servers at different times, but best I can get since one week is arround 14Mbits. Any idea to fix this? I wouldnt ask if I havent allready experienced 24Mbits with VPN so there is a way to get such speeds. Regards
  16. Hi, I have noticed today that whenever I connect to AirVPN via Herculis, Furud or Carinae I can not access any website they all just sit there at loading. I noticed the other day I think but didn't pay any attention and just disconnected. If I disconnect AirVPN all websites load again. I am running OSX 10.9.3 with Viscosity as my VPN manager. I am on a Virgin Media 30Mb connection and I am not sure if it is related to the other VM post going around. Corey
  17. I already use port forwarding for torrents and get speeds that I consider very good, the fastest I've seen being about 4mb/s. However, when downloading things with Firefox it's a different story. On speedtest.net, I score about 4mbps, though this is bits rather than bytes if I understand rightly, meaning about 400kb/s second, as opposed to about 60mbps or 6mb/s with no VPN. Please correct me if I'm wrong with these conversions! In any case, I had to download some large files with my browser and resorted to doing it with no anonymity software because the speeds were so much better. Would I be able to mitigate this by forwarding ports for Firefox? Is such a setup possible?
  18. I was wondering if anyone has built their own router or has anyone seen a tutorial on the net? I was curious I only get a max speed of maybe 7 mb on my asus n66u. I would like to increase my speed to as much as possible on openvpn for downloading and uploading. Thanks in Advance
  19. Hi AirVPN team, On the same machine I have windows and ubuntu. On Windows: * Windows 8 Pro * Advanced Firewall used to limit internet traffic to only be through VPN * uTorrent w/ port forwarding * Usually peaks around 2.5mB/s. Max I've seen is 3mB/s+. * Server: Sirius, TCP On Ubuntu: * 12.04 Server (with minimal desktop installed) * UFW used to block all traffic out/in for internet except certain ports through VPN * Transmission w/ port forwarding * Usually peaks around 500kB/s. Max I've seen is 900mB/s. * Server: Sirius, UDP What can I do to increase the speed on Ubuntu? I think it's very odd that this is happening. Other variations are that the disks are different, but both are comparable 7200RPMs. Thanks
  20. I recently switched to AirVPN after a few years of using another VPN service (Torrent Freedom, which then became CryptoCLoud, and now has become something else) and I can't believe the difference. I remember that when I originally signed up with TF I had shopped around for the best VPN client and at the time they seemed to be. Well, I've learned a lesson. Just because I had been using that company for a while I never bothered to check from time to time to see if anything better was out there. When TF became CryptoCloud they purported to offer faster speeds and more server choices, and I stuck with it. Well, the bandwidth speed got slower and slower to the point where I couldn't watch streaming video. And the server options were already limited, took forever to connect to and it was a roll of the dice as to whether I could connect to a server at all on any given day. Add to that the fact that they were charging $19.95/month for the service; I had several serious billing issues with them and online support was completely non-existent, and you can imagine how happy I was to find AirVPN. I also really like that with AirVPN I'm able to view server statistics. That's a feature that my old VPN wouldn't have dared to use. Keep up the good work, guys! Thanks. AirVPN rocks!
  21. Hello, i've been using airvpn for over a year now and up until a few days/weeks ago I never had any complaints about the speed. i have a 100mbps connection (speedtest.net is usually showing around 70-80mbps via wifi connection) and when i used to connect to NL Leporis/Lyra servers i would get around 20mbps which was fine for me. lately, i would say since the new NL servers were added, i barely get over 5mbps on any NL servers. which is not really enough to watch HD sports streams... any idea what it could be? let me know if you need anything from my end to better analyze what the problem might be. thanks in advance
  22. Hello, I just signed up for the service last week. I'm not really sure what my expectations should be. I have a 30mbs cable modem service. Generally I can expect sustained downloads around 2 megabytes/s. I'm in the US and connecting to US VPN servers. Currently I tend to get around 300 - 700 kilobytes a second. Is this about what I should expect? I suppose I can accept those speeds if I have to. They seem OK for general browsing and video streaming. But if most people with comparable connections are getting better speeds, I just want to make sure I'm getting the best performance I can.
