XT8 has no hardware accelerated AES support, unlike the RT-AC86U.

Intresting, does anyone know if the gt-ax11000 supports hardware accelerated aes? I can't find it in thé specificaties?

And if i use the gt-ax11000 with an xt8 node Will the Speed be better with a VPN connection.

It should, provided the remote server and your ISP aren't your bottleneck.

how can i fix it? what setting do I need to change?
There is nothing to fix, as I said that model does not support it. You'd have to change router model for one that supports it.
