    OpenVPN client speed - Merlin 384.19 vs 386.1

    @Viktor Jaep - before creating this thread I also stumbled upon exactly same article about MTU size and I did play around with modifying mssfix parameter and tested it. Exactly as you found out, it did nothing to my ExpressVPN speed on either firmware. Generally speaking I should not need to...

    OpenVPN client speed - Merlin 384.19 vs 386.1

    ExpressVPN support came back to me with this: "At this moment, we have already filed a feature request for this specific OpenVPN version for your Merlin UI. For now, what we can only suggest is for you to stick with the old version of the firmware as that one seems to provide you a better...

    Thanks. I probably overlooked that button, I will check once I get home.

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 is now available

    Thank you for this tip. 2 questions: 1. did you encounter reduced VPN speeds if dirty upgrade was done without first removing OpenVPN client settings? 2. how do you delete OpenVPN client settings? I cannot check now but I don't recall any delete button in GUI.

    OpenVPN client speed - Merlin 384.19 vs 386.1

    @RMerlin Thank you for testing and confirming that the problem is not with the OpenVPN client 2.5.0 implementation. So the theory is that current configuration in ovpn files (created by VPN providers) should be adjusted to work better with OpenVPN client 2.5.0 and/or VPN servers should be...

    OpenVPN client speed - Merlin 384.19 vs 386.1

    @Perr23 - looks like you have similar issue. Are you also using ExpressVPN, or some other provider? @RMerlin - maybe it is combination of specific parameters, like RT-AC86U and firmware 386.1 and ExpressVPN client.

    OpenVPN client speed - Merlin 384.19 vs 386.1

    @Viktor Jaep - Let's assume there is something in firmware 386.1, what limits ExpressVPN speed to around 140 Mbps. And now there is a ExpressVPN user, who can get maximum 130 Mbps for various non-router related reasons. If that user would upgrade his router from 384.19 to 386.1, he would...

    OpenVPN client speed - Merlin 384.19 vs 386.1

    No problem, I am using ExpressVPN servers in Germany, Czech Republik, Slovakia and Austria. I live in this region and these servers are "near". And yes, the speeds are real, measured with Speedtest app for iOS and Windows. I am sure I am connected to VPN while measuring, among others you can see...

    OpenVPN client speed - Merlin 384.19 vs 386.1

    Hi all, originally I posted it here, but since it is probably quite specific problem, I decided to create new thread. I am using RT-AC86U router with ExpessVPN subscription. When running firmware 384.19, I am getting download speeds through OpenVPN client around 220 - 240 Mbps. But when I...

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 is now available

    The MTU size on WAN page is 1492, which is correct setting for my ISP. I tried to change it to 1500 or 1470, but that had no effect on the reduced 130 - 140 Mbps VPN speed. I also tried to change the 'mssfix 1200' setting on VPN Client page, but no effect on VPN speed. As soon as I downgraded...

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.1 is now available

    Hello all, RMerlin, thank you for your excellent work! I have a question about VPN speeds and I wonder if anyone else here had similar experience. I did not find similar issue when searching the forum. I am using RT-AC86U router with ExpessVPN subscription. While running firmware 384.18 and...
