Hey all, I apologize because I see that this has been talked about a lot but unfortunately I'm not well versed in the networking aspect of all this and so am unsure of how to fix it.

I have the newest Eddie, using windows 7 and windows firewall. Network lock activated, buffers set to 256k as per another guide I found for speed issues.

However, I still have mostly terrible speeds (Occasional spikes of only "bad" speeds, as opposed to "terrible"...as in I usually get 30-40mb/s and typical speed when running AirVpn is less than 100kb/s. Spikes up to 1mb/s for maybe 30s or so then drops down for 15m at a time.

I see topics talking about creating "rules" and then listing lines of instructions like -ipv6 ******- something or other and that's where I get lost.

I've added AirVPN to the windows firewall exception list but this didn't help.

Again I apologize for my ignorance but is there someone willing to help me step by step get my speed back up?

Let me know if and what of you need pictures/copied text/etc to help.

I am currently heading back to work from lunch break so I apologize if I don't respond immediately when you reply.

Hello!

 

I recommend trying different protocols. You can change them from within Eddie. Change to a different protocol and then re-connect to a server.

Did you make a guide or how-to for something? Then contact me if you want me to index it in my new user guide, so that the community can find it more easily.
