    Extremely slow VPN Server transfer speeds even on AES-NI supported RT-AC86U. Out of ideas, please help.

    Well, I did some further testing from a windows laptop from another, external 100/100 Mbit network against my own 300/10 Mbit home internet, and I saw some improvements when using a windows laptop as a PPTP client (less encryption work for the cpu to work with in theory, and on the 'send files...

    I read about wireguard on their website just now and the technology sounds amazing, with minimal attack vectors and it's goal to be simple to use and all that stuff. But it's not yet consumer-ready from what I can see, which is probably why neither Asus stock firmware or Merlin firmware has it...

    I don't know how comfortable I would be with trying Wireguard if it's all CLI based. Too many things that could go wrong with my knowledge. I could look into trying to host a VPN server on a PC or (maybe a NAS?) to let my devices into the network. Are there any easy ways to get that up and...

    Sorry Xentrk. I forgot my manners. Well, everything is possible, but I thought I'd ask for help at this point as I've reached the extent of my own knowledge on the matter. Is Wireguard Web GUI 'setupable' or is that a part of CLI territory?

    Hi. I tried a quick IPSec server too last night but same story sadly, no better luck there. I don't know what that is or how to setup Wireguard server.

    Well, I have a Snapdragon 845, but I'll give it a quick try tomorrow morning on my laptop to follow the process of elimination, however I doubt the problem is there.

    Dude, please read the thread before you reply. I am not using any VPN providers, I'm trying to setup my own personal 'cloud' at home, using my Asus router's own VPN server software that's available in the Web GUI. I want to connect to my router from anywhere in the world and still be able to...

    Extremely slow VPN Server transfer speeds even on AES-NI supported RT-AC86U. Out of ideas, please help.

    My upload speed is 10-ish Mbps (coaxial cable), but it doesn't make sense (to me) that over VPN it would be the same download speed as the download speed. I am testing speeds using my phone, in a file manager app, sending and receiving test files one way, to the hard drive connected to my...

    Hello. After researching online, I bought the RT-AC86U today after reading online for a few weeks that it would be great for faster VPN speeds since it had hardware acceleration built in for encrypting traffic that other models didn't have. (I went from a RT-AC66U B1 that lacks such HW...
