Asus RT-N16: DD-WRTBroadcom BCM4716 chip rev 1Clock = 500 MHz (slightly up from factory 480) My bottleneck is at the router while utilizing the DD-WRT OpenVPN Client function. I get a 40% decrease in bandwidth as apposed to using VPN straight from the computer. This is due to limintations of the onboard processor. I use the router because I have just the one VPN account so I have all the computers in the network going through it. I tested the bandwidth with just a single computer connected to assure that it wasn't a network sharing issue. Now I believe my options are: Overclock the hell out of the router. Running some kind of local OpenVPN Server. Purchase a better router. Purchase additional separate monthly VPN accounts I would like to go with 2 because its the cheapest and less risky. Also because I am already running a local tower as SFTP file server and Ubuntu+Debian package archive mirror. Now my knowledge of OpenVPN is limited as is my knowledge of DD-wrt routing functions. Ideally I would like to prevent any and all PlainText traffic. So I think my setup would look roughly like this. Current Configuration: [Computers & Devices] --P--> [Router] --E--> [iSP] --E--> [VPN Provider] --P--> [internet] Proposed Configuration: [Computers & Devices] --P--> [Router] --P--> [Local OpenVPN Server] --E--> [Router] --E--> [iSP] --E--> [VPN Provider] --P--> [internet] P = PlainText E = Encrypted VPN Tunnel
