try alternative UK VPNs I find this fixes the issue when trying to connect to some UK sites that get this issue.


Same applies for US websites.

In Topic: Installing a pfsense box with AirVPN

This sounds very interesting.


On the moment I have a 150 Mb/s - 20 Mb/s ISP connection and my max speed over VPN is 7Mbps

So I am astonished that it is possible to have 140Mbps; that's 20 times more!


I thought it was not possible and that the air vpn servers were the bottleneck.

But now I am not so sure anymore about that...

I was hitting around similar with my Asus tomato router,  I ignored a few comments about people saying you wont get faster but sadly they were all right.

Eventually routers are just too slow.  Even the latest netgear router with dual core 1ghz cpu wont do much more then around 20meg under an VPN with AES encryption.


So its time to build a pfsense.  Many pfsense guys I noticed have just used an old pc or got a cheap pc of ebay and converted it into an router and I prefer this.  However trying to get a low powered and low wattage AES compatible CPU and one with 2-4 ethernet ports which are all compatible with pfsense is slightly tricky.  But check Knickers hardware I feel he has got it bang on.


I would have loved to use one of those tiny pcs that consume 15-20watts but I don't feel that is happening since they lack AES or ethernet ports.


Shame Shutlle DS61 V1.1 did not upgrade to a haswell system,  some core i3s @ 55watts and some cpus with 35watts even about....

I'm not a P2P user but I was curious; on their "Why IVPN" page: https://www.ivpn.net/whyivpn


It says,


4. We're not a P2P downloading service.


How do they accomplish that, Is it a matter of them not forwarding ports?


How can a VPN provider call itself a provider if it can't offer p2p services ?
