    any idea why my downloads are slow?

    You are right. That was on my laptop with the VPN client. I'm right at half that with the Flint. According ipv6leak.com my ipv6 is not leaking.

    any idea why my downloads are slow?

    Got everything back to normal. ISP had to come out and rewrire and ground something. Now download speed is 897.70 Mbps down and 46.39 Mbps up ON wireguard! Thanks for everyone's help. Much appreciated.

    Only the 3 firesticks and my laptop are routed through the VPN. Everything else goes through the CM gateway. We got gig service because it was cheaper than the previous service (at least for 1 year anyway).

    any idea why my downloads are slow?

    The main reason I trust them more than my ISP is the fact that I have never received a letter from them for downloading copyrighted material. I have from my ISP. Yes. I know that certain sites don't work correctly on VPN. I also know TorGuard is not the most secure for torrenting and supposedly...

    I don't either but others are on the network I'm trying to secure from our ISP. I'm not 100% sure if they are sharing content. Hence my post. Please take no offense. I'm not here to split hairs. Simply to gain knowledge.

    Thank you. I'll try several of those in the morning. I'll be happy if I get back to 80-90Mbps. I do have a subscription to Mullvad but they don't play well with Philo or Real-debrid.

    any idea why my downloads are slow?

    Yes. I have tried changing servers myself through config changes. And even different VPN companies completely and without VPN to no avail. I'm not asking how to use a VPN. Thanks. I've been using one or three since 2012. Unfortunately you have to trust someone. I don't trust any ISP. I have been...

    I agree but it was faster before my ISP went to gig speed. I don't know what I am doing. That's why I opened this up. Thanks for the reply.

    any idea why my downloads are slow?

    Thank you. I thought so too. I have a Cat6 from my CM gateway to the Flint and 3 more Cat6 cables from the Flint to various devices. Only a few cell phones are connected to the CM gateway WiFi.

    This CM is acting differently than the one before it. It has 4 ports and when the VPN is on, they are all showing the VPN IP address. The wireless of the CM does not. It shows my ISP's IP. I'm pretty much a noob and not sure if it's supposed to be like that. My prior CM had 4 ports also but only...

    Here's the strange thing. My Flint downloaded faster before I got gigabit internet. The CM change slowed it down. Any input on that?

    I haven't bought anything yet. Still trying to figure out what would be the best bang for my buck

    VPN for the LAN. I wish it were just a single device

    Do you think the Asus RT-AX86S would run any faster? I'm beginning to question my Flint's capabilities.

    any idea why my downloads are slow?

    With the VPN off my speeds are 403.8 Mbps down and 40.4 Mbps up. Through the Flint is 30 Mbps down and 30 Mbps up. I am not allowed to buy my own CM per my ISP which makes me suspicious that they are doing something to throttle me
