    On my RT-AC66u, using Asuswrt-Merlin 3.0.0.4.246.20 on (I think it was also true in earlier builds), if I turn on Samba support on the PPTP (VPN) page, my 5gHz throughput drops from around 65-70 MBps bidirectionsl to around 2-5 (even when there are no VPN clients). Makes that feature a bit less useful. ;)

    Personally I recommend people leave that setting disabled, as it has other issues in addition to that.
