I don't understand what you mean - the killswitch is just an enable/disable toggle, there's no IP configuration involved.Merlin question
For the killswitch
Would I have to add he IP and the Subnet mask?
IP star with 192..
Subnet with 255...
or would the IP cover everything?
I cant' help with your specific situation. But I noticed a similar speed issue with VPN over WiFi when compared to using an ethernet connection.When using the AC86U as a VPN server with the latest ASUS firmware (384.20308), data rates from my home network to the remote device (Macbook Pro running OpenVPN) are highly variable from moment-to-moment. I see about 2-4 seconds of data coming in at the full outbound speed of my home network connection to the internet, and then all flow stops or slows down greatly for 1-2 seconds, and then speeds jump back up. In comparison, if I transfer data via a VNC connection that uses 128 bit encryption, I get non-stop full saturation of the outbound speed of my home network connection to the internet. The OpenVPN server settings on my AC86U are AES-128-CBC, SHA1, and 2048 bits. Its not particularly heavy duty settings by current secure standards, so I was hoping that VPN performance would be good, but maybe I'm wrong on this? One thing I have noticed is that 20308 is significantly better 10007, but still far from what I see over VNC. Any thoughts as to what can be changed to improve the speeds?

Remove those buffer tweaks, and make sure you use Client 1, 3 or 5 for best CPU allocation. Clients 2 and 4 will share CPU time with other network services.Hi, ive had this router now for over a month, at first after configured the speeds use to max my cable connection (200 down) however now im only getting half of this. Have tried different vpn providers still the same. I have restored it and updated it still the same. Can anyone suggest the optimum settings to increase the speed? Im with privateinternetaccess, have followed their setup etc does not improve nothing. In the Custom config part i have the following:
push "sndbuf 524288"
push "rcvbuf 524288"
Shall i remove / add anything to this? I have now upgraded my speed to 350mb line and it achieves almost 400 without vpn.
Thanks in advance for any help, much appreciated
When you run a VPN server on your router and connect to it using a VPN client on your PC your connection speed is going to be some percentage of your NON VPN upload speed.
You listed your download speed, but I am not clear on what your upload speed is. Is it 933.61 Mbps?
If it is that high I'm not sure if anyone else on this forum has an upload speed that high and can tell you if your speed is good or bad.
The 200 Mbps you mention is the bench mark best speed certain users on this forum have been getting running a VPN client on their AC86U and connecting to PIA.
