Hi, not sure if your problem is now fixed but I have a similar issue with vpn and wired client performance with the Ac88u and merlin 384.19.

In my case, the router is OK for a couple days after reboot and then the cpu starts ticking up and stays there even if vpn tunnels aren't that busy. It'll get to a point after 5 days where I must restart or my wired machine (non-VPN client) starts seeing drops and slowness too.

I'm even considering going back to an older version of merlin that I know works well with everything staying up for months. I really shouldn't have upgraded especially now that me and the gf are working from home mostly. I just want to be able to work normally and not have to investigate this so often.

Hello, I've never been able to totally fix the issue. For now I received a new ax88u so my ac88u is stored.

Using exactly the same setup scenario, I'm getting 4MB/s in VPN instead of 0.7MB/s, and the wired clients do not lose connection when I'm testing (similar to your issue).

It's a really hard bug to trace, to be honest I was left without many ideas to help this project/trace the issue..
