Im in the US and noticed my connectivity during peak hours is half, at best, to what I typically can connect with during off-peak hours. I pay Comcast for 150mbps. During peak hours, when connected to Eddie, I have awful speeds... again, at best I can connect at about 1/2 my typical connectivity. Usually my DL is 150+mbps, and UL is 24+. (Windows 7 Pro OS, using Eddie Beta 2.13.3). Sometimes w/ Eddie during peak hours best I can configure is 40mbpsDL, 20mbpsUL I'm so burnt on troubleshooting this problem I figured I'd ask w/in the forums. I've tried everything (changed Protocols, Ports, rolled back TAP driver, and more), but I'm still being throttled. According to Comcast (Tier 2) tech support, Comcast isn't supposed to shape or throttle VPN connections (but I'm certain they do as one, I never had this problem until about 2 months ago, and two, I've eliminated other variables -I have all new wiring, a new gateway, e.t.). As I mentioned, my speeds are fine during peak hours w/o AirVPN -so I guess that sums it up. I've read somewhere adding a 2nd router to the gateway/router registered w/ Comcast allows one to have more control over settings? I'm open to any suggestions or ideas. I know my ISPs network is very busy at peak times (per tech support), usually about 2-3pm Eastern Time to about Midnight, Eastern Time. Thanks in advance for any help troubleshooting. Or, is it time to find a new ISP? Thanks again! 'Jeers to Comcast'
